Consistency would be nice.

July 15, 2012

I am waiting (although not with baited breath) for the FA to charge Terry with the same offence of which they found Suarez guilty last season. If they use the same burden of proof (i.e. none) then Terry will also be banned for at least 8 games.

Anton Ferdinand cannot be charged by the FA as Patrice Evra, in his evidence to the Suarez commission, admitted using abusive and insulting language but was not charged…

Rio, on the other hand, clearly needs to be charged following his agreement with the ‘choc ice’ comment on twitter. He can pretend all he likes that it is not a racist comment but we are not as stupid as he seems to think we are…. Not so long ago Ryan Babbel was charged, found guilty and fined for retweeting a photo of a ref wearing a Man Utd kit… He was charged. Ergo, so should Rio Ferdinand.

All that we need is for the FA to act with some consistency. Maybe it would be best for my health if I didn’t hold my breath….
