Is there a Bias from the Refs and FA?
Call me crazy, but recent decisions only show this both within Chelsea and other teams.
Firstly, Drogba and Torres go in with a two footed challenge against players from Swansea and QPR. Both players were given a red card.
Vincent Kompany, who actually caught the ball and not the legs of Nani in the FA Cup got a red card and served a 4 match ban. The same set of tackles got all 3 international players sent off.
Frank Lampard goes in with the same challenge against Wolves and is only given a yellow card. Ashley Cole has repeatedly done reckless bad tackles this season: 1.) Against Osaze of West Brom; and 2.) Against Chicharito against Man U that I think broke his ankle. I am not sure if Cole was even penalized.
During the Man City v Spurs game on Sunday, there were two incidents that resembled some of the above. One involved my favorite character in world football today; Super 'why always me' Mario Balotelli and the other involved Joleon 'what the feck does he have on his head' Lescott.
Scotty tackled Balotelli and it seemed as Balotelli was landing on his other feet, he may have stumped on Scott Parker. I am not sure how many of you saw the incident, but it is debatable if Mario did his intentionally.
Lescott on the other hand was definitely guilty. I expected both of them to be charged, but to my surprise, the English FA decides to charge Mario Balotelli for his conduct against Scott Parker while Lescott was not charged at all.
Remember Wayne Rooney's elbow against McCarthy of Wigan last year. No charge. Even bad boy Joey Barton got off scot free against Gervinho early on during the season while Gervinho got a red card.
Remember Carragher's tackle against Nani. No red card. Nothing!
Is there a bias against foreign players or I am smoking pot please?
