Didn't look like what Tevez did was intentional. It is worth mentioning he is being hated for everything after the Tevez incident.

Except Tevez did "start it"? For what? He rolled around in the penalty box clutching his face. Would've ****ed me off too cheating bastard.

Yes, I understand. But "everything after" is a consequence of what Barton described as a "punch to the head" from Tevez.

Here's another: "Think a few people are forgetting Tevez started the fracas by throwing a punch to the head...?"

You can't really blame him.
He can't help it.
He's a Scouser.

What amazes me most about this whole incident is that Balotelli does this **** all the time but when Joey Barton does it there's a full blown witch-hunt. I think both are scum, but the hypocrisy of some people on here is far more abhorrent than the behaviour of either player. Tbph I can't blame Barton for wanting to take another player with him, knowing he's been sent off for nothing more than handbags with Tevez, who started the whole thing in the first place. His antics in other games/off the pitch have been ridiculous, but in this case I really don't think he did all that much wrong. It's not as if he was ever in any danger of seriously hurting another player. Ten years ago Keane and Viera were doing stuff like this (or worse) to each other every season and no one batted an eyelid. I mean it's typical City, you can't really blame other players for getting annoyed when they instigate incidents like that and then feign injury when retaliation inevitably comes. Violence seems like a perfectly justified course of action in the face of blatant cheating, actually, I mean the FA certainly aren't going to do anything about it now, are they? I only wish he'd done a better job and given Aguero a dead leg so he couldn't have scored the winner - I'm sure that was what he had in mind when he tried it actually, one last effort to help his team on the defensive end.
