i think we are so quick to take responsibility away from ppl these days.
& this is the cas again with rooney.
lets blame the cameraman or the media.
if rooney doesnt act like an angry idiot then theres no prob.
what next? u can celebrate by doing a wanka sign to the camera?
its ok because most kids now what a wanka sign is.
its the camera mans thought for getting to close.
its like taking the blame away from your rooneys & crouchs for cheating, by blaming it on the girls who hand it to them on a plate.
its still rooney/crouch choosing to cheat.
we are turning into a blame everyone but me for my actions nation.
the blame culture is rife.
No-one is saying that Rooney isn`t responsible for hia actions but the actions of another person had a bearing on how he reacted. Rooney was reacting to the presence of the camerman on the pitch so it follows if the cameraman hadn`t been there Rooney wouldn`t have reacted. However, Rooney must take responsibility for the words he used - shove off, get off, get away etc were other viable options. But lets be honest given the way `industrial language` on the pitch has been tolerated by all those involved in football it was highly unlikely that he was ever going to use one of the more acceptable alternatives.
