FA Charge Rooney!

FA Charge Rooney!

Can you say you`re surprised?

Now far from being paranoid I think there is a real case to argue that, despite him being one of ours, Wayne Rooney was always going to be charged by the Football Association for his foul and abusive rant at Upton Park.

It`s almost as if Wayne owed them after he escaped scot-free after the flailing elbow at Wigan.

Also in the we`ll get you back tank was the small matter of Wayne telling the supporters where to go when they dared boo England after a below par performance in South Africa 2010.

All that remains now is to wait and see if Wayne will accept the punishment handed his way or whether we`ll become embroiled in an appeal.

Have your say in our new poll!

Let’s see you wriggle out of this one – but I have no doubt you will!

No chance merlin, the evidence against him is far too strong. Personally, I think this is pathetic. Fair enough, ban Rooney for swearing but I can almost guarentee that there was atleast another 3 or 4 players swearing at some point during this weekend who have also swore! I can also guarentee that in the future numerous players will swear during games of football and won't even get looked at or acknowledged by the FA. To add insult to injury the ban is unreasonable, 2 games! A player who commits 2 unsporting, possibly game changing challenges gets less of a punishment than someone who got caught swearing. Pathetic.

Also, for someone who's considered to be having a 5hit season, which he is, he has still notched up an incredible 10 goals and 11 assists in 22 Premier League games. Looking at those stats, i'm quite excited to having Rooney, on-form (or just a typical game to him :P) back, he will be a valuable asset during the run-in.

"Why do these young players have to be so angry with the world? I don't know why. They are getting hundreds of thousands of pounds a week. I respect him (Rooney) as a player but he is a silly boy for what he did and he shouldn't have done it." - Harry Redknapp. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zU0raWjoppg ----- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MrWS0bZqsY&feature=related ----- Harry, shut up.

I kind of think its fair enough - Drogba got punished after the Champions League and his outburst was more justified. I think the fact that we have Berba and Hernandez firing on all cylinders means its not a massive deal.

It's all a huge anti-'nited conspiracy at the FA - they've always been against you doncha know? PMSL.

Haha that's brilliant fcb, it wasn't us posting conspiracy theories about the FA's favouritism for the big 4, ickle City, the team that everyone hates ... in their eyes atleast, paranoid bunch. tuscan, I don't deny the ban is fair but the punishment doesn't fit the crime, a one game ban at most and even then that sounds harsh. That and the fact though so few other teams will get similar treatment, if any at all. Swearing happens in every sport and game across the world will all those face similar charges?

The problem though is not neccessarily the swearing (some prize comments often do get picked up or lipread), but the fact that he looked right into the camera and did it, ala Drogba. There's a difference between swearing on the field and sticking your mug in the camera and letting rip!

That's an excellent point BlueBanes, never thought of it like that. A precedent has been set and Drogba got a 3 game ban for it whereas Shrek is only getting 2. TF7 we were discussing temper tantrums recently in regards to Balotelli, I said that Shrek was just as bad if not worse, you argued that he wasn't, just wondering do you still think the same way?
