    From the first page I count 9 condemnations and 1 saying they aren't bothered. Nothing about it being acceptable, not comparable.
    Not on here. I meant on Twitter/IRL. Heard plenty of people say it, to be honest. I agree with you, though. For what it's worth.

    It's a strange one, same as JT, everyone has rightly condemned Giggs for this, including Utd fans (who accept it, then follow with "but he was a footballing professional" yet Liverpool fans by and large don't accept the racist comment and downplay the biting as "childish" as if he's just a puppy and he'll grow out of it. At least acknowledge that he's in the wrong FFS.

    A friend of mine, Pool fan, put up on Twitter, totally out of the blue, a joke about Evra reporting Mascherano to the tax office because he likes getting Liverpool players in trouble, he's an idiot, but it's amazing how many retweets he gets.

    That's ridiculous. The whole affair could have been handled better by everyone - namely Liverpool's management.

    Anyone but Suarez doing that would have been condemned by Dalglish and hated by their own fans.

    Ah, but it was Suarez.

    Geniuses tend to be indulged. Ferguson himself admitted it, with regard to Cantona.

    You think Poborsky would have been backed if he kung-fu kicked a fan?
