Mama I love you, mama I care.
and its going to be a long day
But in all seriousness, good. It gives a good message.
He looks like a massive cat
I don't see what grounds he has to appeal on.
because as pathetic as he is, the 2 game ban is unprecedented for something like this? deserved in my book, but i can see why they think they can get it down.
but seeing as such a big deal has been made about diving and unsportly behaviour by governing bodies, bringing it down would undermine themselves
i am slightly shocked that since my return to watching top flight football, i haven't really noticed an increase in diving. there is definitely an increase in refs giving free kicks to players who ask for them (players who the refs have seen on tv and desire to have them in their phone book)
exactly has he been done for though, he asks without reading the link? If you can get done for feigning injury now, is Drogba going to be forever faced with 3 match bans?
Uefa's control and disciplinary body took a dim view of the keeper's theatrics, charging him with a lack of sportsmanship.
see also the lithuanian player given a two match ban, after the match, for a clear dive that wrongfully earned them a penalty against scotland.
