Rio Ferdinand


Lofty.

Recommended Posts

I wish the FSW had come out and said "He could have killed the Lad" in a blatant p*ss take at Fergies reaction earlier in the season...

 

I loathe Ferdinand but the FA will do nothing...

The ball is in the ref's court. As he couldn't have seen it, he has to decide whether the incident was worthy of a red card or not (it clearly was). Clattenburg decided last season that Rooney's elbow to the head of a Wigan player was not a red card offence, and other refs the other year looked at Ronaldo kicking out at players off the ball (in two separate incidents) and decided they were not worthy of a retrospective red.

 

Bit of a poser for ManU's official official.

But he's a bellend who plays for Man U, and as such has become something of a protected species. There surely cannot be any other reason for Ferdinand to continually escape punishment.

 

There was the missed drugs test ban of course, but ever since that time each and every one of Ferdinand's many misdemeanours has been either brushed under the carpet or willfully ignored, to the extent that there are still calls for him to be reinstated not only in the England squad, but as England captain.

 

So is it simply pro-Man U bias or fear of Ferguson that enables Ferdinand to repeatedly get away scot free with incidents that you would normally expect to lead to a lengthy ban?

 

I suspect it's mostly the latter.

Rio is a c**t, and unfortunately I don't see anything coming of this. It should be a red, but I can't see Webb saying that he would have given the red if he had seen it.

 

Stranger things have happened, and I hope Rio gets a good punishment from the FA. As one of my mates always told me...

 

Hope is not a strategy.

In the past few months alone, we've had:

 

1. The unpunished 'Liar liar' tweets

2. The racist choc ice tweet, for which he had no ban

3. The insinuation that Hodgson is lying over his 'football reasons' for not picking him'

4. The unpunished sarcastic applause last week

5. The sly off the ball incident with Torres yesterday

 

Clearly he should be recalled to the England set up.

Even Poll thinks he should be done this time.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/index.html

 

The video evidence appears to normal people quite damning in that Rio Ferdinand seeks out Fernando Torres and appears to both trip and push him in the back of the head.

The FA, you would think, must surely charge Ferdinand, even though I have no doubt he will defend his case quite vigorously.

I suspect he will claim the clash was purely accidental and point to the fact the picks up Chelsea striker Torres, seemingly apologising too.

Ferdinand has recent history of this after clapping sarcastically in Turkish ref Cuneyt Cakir's face at the final whistle of the Champions League loss to Real Madrid.

Ferdinand then returned to the match officials just moments later to shake his hands and subsequently escaped any UEFA action.

I have little confidence the FA will do anything different this time, even though it is behind the back of the referee.

They will ask Howard Webb if he had seen it – and they will ask him: ‘If you had seen it, what action would had taken?’

The FA should say: ‘Referee, you haven’t seen it, we shall take the decision for you' - rather than asking him to re-referee the incident.

He will almost certainly be banned and rightly so.

I doubt it. The FA will ask Howard Webb if he saw it, he will say no, they will ask him what he would have done had he saw it, to which he will reply ..

"Pretend I didn't see it !!!!!!!"

apparently could be recalled by England this week...the fa are a bunch of fcukwits...in the space of five days he's been seen to disrespect ref in front of Europe and then crock torres off the ball...in contrast, jt would be summoned to their office and locked up in ball and chains...no wonder he quit already

This is why I don't really care for England's international fixtures.

His omission from the England squads for footballing reason's are correct and nothing to do with JT but again the media seem to point the finger at Terry. Fergie said a year ago Ferdinand cant play 2 games a week anymore so what good is he at a tournament and if thats the case why play him in friendlies?

 

Man U players get away with murder compared to ours.Just like Giggs(brothers wife) Scholes(career full of leg breaking tackles) and now Rio for all the reasons listed already.

I don't like the implied 'is it cos i is black?' insinuations quoted by his supporters re the old Jt situation and whether he plays for England again. No: it's cos your too b***** old and too b***** slow.

Apparently a lack of video evidence was enough to get him off.

 

 

The FA went to pretty big lengths to find various camera angles to get a lip reader to guess at what John Terry said to Anton Ferdinand and then convicted him "on the balance of probabilities"

 

Using the same logic "on the balance of probabilities" Rio was being a c*nt and deserves a 3 match ban for being a slimy little gimp.

Sickeningly predictable, but still outrageous.

 

Time to update my post from earlier:

 

In the past few months alone, we've had:

 

1. The unpunished 'Liar liar' tweets

2. The racist choc ice tweet. No ban

3. The insinuation that Hodgson is lying over his 'football reasons' for not picking him'. No action taken

4. The unpunished sarcastic applause last week

5. The sly off the ball incident with Torres yesterday. Unpunished

 

Scandalous.
