Take off the blinkers for once in your life devon.
You were the one arguing for Rooney when he committed GBH against McCarthy last season, remember.
Funny how you have no opinion this time around.
I have no opinion because I haven`t seen the incident and for the record I, like many other utd fans on this board have said that Rooney was lucky to get away with his elbow last season and critised the fa`s stance that if the ref has dealt, even incorrectly, with an incident on the pitch they will not review it. Only incidents which the ref has missed altogether can be reviewed. That is the fa`s stance, for me its the wrong one cause for a variety of reasons refs can make wrong decisions, the main one being he has to make a snap judgement based on what just one look at an incident. The other reason why the fa`s stance is wrong is that they already do correct decisions that refs have got wrong by rescinding the ban on players who shouldn`t have been sent off.
