I agree with the sentiment. It was harsh and I can understand Utd fans feeling hard done by but the media reaction has been laughable - you'd think he'd sent RVP off in the warm up for being Dutch.
I've just watched Bale pick up another (6th of the season?) yellow for diving. The commentator mentioned "well, there wasn't much contact was there" as his only criticism. I'm not expecting much commentary about it in the media tomorrow either. Lucky he's British and not one of those dirty foreigners eh?
