Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens
Well, it's a tough one. Let's face it, Suarez is a cheat. Handling the ball in this game may not prove it, but his diving has proved it in the past, so first things first he is a cheat. If the commentator thinks it was deliberate handball then he has every right to call him a cheat in my eyes, but it's tough because should he have done it on national telly. I don't blame the commentator for speaking his mind though.
Are we at an era in football now that even a commentator will be punished for speaking his mind? Is everything that robotic? We have players/managers/coaches/referees all talking with their hands over their mouth now for fear of punishment for their own opinions. I can't believe there are fans calling for his head. You got the goal, you won the tie, you're in the next round in a controversial fashion then just move on instead of cursing the commentator for showing a bit of character and humanity.
Things in football like this need to be looked at in a way where you should think how you would feel if you were on the receiving end of a thing like this. If it was Mansfield going through in the exact same way, Liverpool fans would be calling Mansfield cheats and it would be a complete 180.
It's happened, the team who are allegedly responsible for the controversy won the match, the opposition manager has moved on and yet they are still bringing up things about the game. It's just... Remarkable.
