It's Official: The FA Plays Favorites

If any player from any other team had thrown the elbow that Manchester United's Wayne Rooney threw at Wigan's James McCartney last Saturday, the FA would have banned him for at least three games. It is outrageous that Rooney escapes with no penalty simply because the ref, who did not see the elbow, saw the two players collide and awarded a free kick.

If Man U had any integrity as an organization, they would voluntarily sit Rooney for at least a couple of games for what was an obvious and intentional assault. It's time for teams to start taking responsibility for the on-field conduct of their players.
