it seened to me that henry CONTROLLED the ball and that it was deliberate....cheating is cheating....i was cheated out of decisions at cricket by home umpires and it angered me....no true sportsman cheats.i have declared 'no catch' to balls that did not carry......this may sound goody-goody in this cynical world today ,but that is how i feel....also why the silence from Platini and Blatter....the vociferous champions of fair play?
anyway Henry is now marked for life...like madonna is to us...
I totally agree John. Cheating is cheating is cheating. I agree with most of the comments on this thread and most of all that if a player is caught cheating, either at the time or as the result of a replay later on they should be punished heavily.
The problem is that whereas in the real world if any of my employees did something wrong I would deal with it myself, in the form of a disciplinary, even if its to the advantage of the company (because thats not the impression we want to give our customers) in the footballing world a player does something wrong the manager 'doesn't see it' whether its a dive, kicking, spitting, handball, whatever. They don't seem to care that they have a cheat in the team.

for me frank stapletons comments just say that a lot of players would have also cheated.
but that doesnt excuse henry cheating at all.
cheats should be punished, just because other people would cheat it dont make iot all right.
imagine if we had that view on crime, its ok to murder because other people commit murder.
