    Default Can someone explain this to me...

    Figo clearly and intentionally butts a player in the face. An assistant tells the ref. who gives Figo a yellow card. FIFA say no further action as it was dealt with on the pitch.

    Rooney is brought to ground by two players who fail to keep him down. Whilst his eye is never turned away from the ball that he continues to strive for, he steps on one of the aforementioned. He gets a red card, but despite the alleged offence being dealt with on the pitch, he is subsequently awarded a further penalty - a two match ban.

    How's that then?

    Or a Frenchman, Zildan, commits a violent act on an Italian and it's all his fault.

    An Englishman, Rooney, commits a violent act on a Portugese player and it's all the fault of another Portugese player, Ronaldo.

    I'm no football fan but always find it hard to understand double standards.
