Running up to the ref waving imaginary cards. Is there anything worse in football?  I was all set to watch a great game today, cast aside any prejudice and see the best our league has to offer. Disgusting, two die hard reds    in the shoulder  this tea time were excusing it by citing some other occasion when  a team did it with scum. Pathetic. When Howson did it, i said it was disgusting and will continue to say it. Fans should just own up and say it's wrong especially when it's your own team.

Yep, totally agree.

Indeed. They need to make it punishable with a mandatory yellow card.

I hate to admit that Rugby Union have got anything right but I think 10 minutes in the the 'Sin Bin' would be appropriate punishment for anything that constitutes 'behaving like a twat'.

Saw the tackle. Never a red. Can they appeal it? Rooney an utter disgrace. Trained in the art by Ferguson.

From a refereeing standpoint, I can "sort of" see why the red was issued under the current guidelines, but I'd've personally interpreted the tackle as being from the side and exclusively for the ball (the real point of the two footed stuff is for face-to-face challenges).

It's very telling that Nani, a serial cheating diver if ever there was one, didn't seem remotely perturbed by the challenge.

Refereeing guidelines:

Yellow = reckless challenge
Red = excessive force

To be honest, I might not even have given a foul.

It did make the game a bit more interesting for the neutral though.......

I think Rooney was signalling a 2 foot challenge rather than a card, though it probably amounts to the same thing. Only the other day Mancini was charging up and down the line waving the imaginary card so he's no better.

It would have to be a very strong minded ref not to be influenced by a posse of ranting players bearing down on him. As kk says the manager sets the standard the players follow.

I've been thinking about this and maybe there are other options other than sin-bins that haven't been considered yet.

1. Make the player play with a balloon between his legs for 10 minutes
2. Tie his leg to another player so that they have to play like they're in a 3 legged race
3. Confine them to the centre circle for ten minutes and make them sing and do the actions to the Birdie song.

i think that would sort them out.

Some good ideas FC....The balloon one would lead to long term chaffing injuries unless properly lubricated

I've never liked Rooney, but over the last couple of years i've come to dislike him so much i can't even cheer England on when he's playing.

It's like having an six year old girl on the pitch.

'If you don't send that nasty boy Vincent off I'm going to scream and scream until I'm sick.'

apologies for the overt sexism in this post. If you've ever read the 'William' books you will understand.

I love football.

I love the Premier League.

And at times I don't know why.

I have played football with blokes equally as tough as these guys and seen them commit and suffer tackles far worse than any seen in the Manc derby but never witnessed the surly, spoiled, pathetic attitude following a hard tackle.

Saw a few blokes flattened like.

Apparently is a natural reaction to hound the ref waving imaginary cards pressuring him to send him off says Mr Ferguson and apparently its "funny" how its Rooneys fault he got sent off according to his tweets. In a nutshell, why top level football stinks high heaven. The pair are everything that is wrong with the game

Why won't all clubs just say ENOUGH!

Imagine a game with no Ref baiting, diving or feigning injury. Maybe FIFA could roll out a game with these ethics in mind, instead of fucking about with pretend refs behind the goal or booking players for taking a shirt off.

Fair enough but RL has it's own problems.

The England captain? A cheating diving bastard? Surely not?

Certainly is.

And, though I can see why their first goal was given, you can also clearly see (admittedly in replay) that the PNE goalkeeper stuttered his dive slightly because he was aware of the presence of Shrek, even though the latter did a good job in attempting to stay out of the play in the circumstances.

I hope Arsenal batter them.
