Or the one he isn't getting. More proof that the FA are entirely bent when it comes to dealing with those bastards.

as far as I am aware the FA can only act retrospectivly if the referee claims to have missed the incident. From what I am reading he seems to have been happy with the award of the free kick and nothing further which would surly imply a serious misjudgment on his behalf more so than anything to do with the FA. On the other hand the law there could do with some tweaking but it is the same law accross the board and applies to anyone for their benefit or otherwise no matter who they are or play for. The hype over this whole thing has been laughable, serious refereeing gaffs like this happen up and down the leagues week in and week out and only for who it is and who he plays for it would only be a footnote in a match report rather than national headline. If anyone its the wigan fans who should be up in arms but looking through some of the football blogs and sites this morning the outrage from bloody Osasuna, Darlington, Liverpool, Uxbridge Celtic fans...

It was assault.
Yes the ref saw it so, as the rules stand, the FA will do FA about it. But the rules need changing. And the ref needs shooting (maybe Ashley Cole could help?).
Fergie claims there was nothing wrong with it. Had it been the other way around he'd have been calling the UN in.

And a lot less gets punished. But United get away with it. Again.

look, if it was say Darlington vs Ipswich game this happened in nobody would be even having this conversation. The rule that prevents anything being done is actually FIFA and not the referee or even the FA. Apparently the rule is there to avoid referees going into games with a mindset of 'if I fuck this up I can sort it Monday' kind of attitute which I can agree with otherwise we would without doubt be looking at more bottled decisions and controversyhe pitch. Yes Rooney could be banned perhaps after the event but he will still have been on the pitch for 90 minutes and got to do the damage, point oin the bag. Surly what we should be looking for is total justice and decisions on the pitch and looking at technology is a no brainer to help the officials, it works fine in all other sports its such a no brainer to bring it in only question to be answered is under what terms and what scope so as to aviod changing the dynamic of the game, you cant make decisions 2 days after the event. Unless you agree with that you have to accept that this stuff will happen in the game going forward as it always has done long as the on field decisions are made by humans with one angle, one live real time view of play,

True but that still wouldn't make it right. Of course Rooney et al are more in the spotlight and will get pulled up on things like this more often. I'm pretty sure their £200,000 a week and playing at Old Trafford are some compensation though as opposed to £200 a week and playing to more empty seats than fans at the Darlington Arena or whatever it's called this month.

Whoever's rule it is, it's still wrong. Yes "if i fuck it up i can sort it out Monday" is a bad idea. But what about "if the camera clearly catches you fucking it up and you're blatantly an idiot you get sent back to fucking referee school". Yes it won't help Wigan if Rooney is banned after the event, but that doesn't mean he still doesn't deserve a 3 game ban. Where's the deterrent if you just say "well that game is gone now anyway, let him off". If a murderer doesn't gwet caught until 20 years after the event, do we say "well sod the life sentance, the police fucked up catching him at the time, off you go sunshine"?.

This is one aspect that can be corrected after the event though. Yes, again, from Wigan's point of view it's no consolation, but at least Rooney still gets punished.
30 seconds for someone to glance at a monitor could have sorted it during the game, by the time the ref had finished blowing for the free kick the fourth official could be in his ear telling him what had happened and the potato headed bastard should be sent off.

Without getting into it (there is ale to be drunk) I can agree with one or two points to a certain extent but you are still a knob Craig (now its official) ok. :wink:

You can say that again!

And talking of the potato headed idiot, what about the Wales game the other week and that stupid needless booking he picked up? He claims he 'forgot' he'd already been booked in the qualifiers. Rather conveniently he now misses the Switzerland game in June meaning he has no international commitments once the season's over bar catching a plane to Dubai. Don't suppose old Fergie happened to have a quiet word in his ear at all did he?

I was betting on Balotelli being sent off...

Should be good at work on Monday - as the office is split between Utd and City - with a few outsiders like me [Semi Scouse LFC] - I'll just stand back and watch the firework display!
