Tiger Woods swears on the golf course his punishment -- a fine and a slap on the wrist. Wayne Rooney swears on the soccer pitch and gets banned for two matches.
Now - the star striker for Manchester United, is appealing the suspension he received for swearing at a television camera on Saturday.
Rooney says the suspension goes too far and hopes to win his appeal without missing any matches. ESPN reports...
“...Rooney acknowledged using offensive language during a Premier League game but will appeal his automatic two-match ban. England's Football Association said Tuesday the Manchester United striker deemed the punishment ‘clearly excessive.’”
A blogger for The Guardian has Rooney’s back, saying emotion and anger is a part of the game...
“One of the things that makes sport great is the emotion that it conjures, both in participants and spectators, and anyone who attempts to legislate that emotion away is my enemy and the enemy of football.”
Emotion might be part of the game - but a blogger for SB Nation writes - swearing shouldn’t be.
“...nobody is tuning in to see the players swearing at each other, the world, the referee, or even at us, and there's no real reason we should be tolerant of it.”
Finally - the president of the Pro Footballers’ Association John Bramhall - calls the offense “disappointing” -- but says -- even Rooney seems to understand that.
“It was disappointing. From a moment where he plays a fantastic 15 minutes, scores three goals and brings his team back into the game, his celebrations have then let himself down, and I think he appreciates that, hence his apology right after the game.”
What do you think? Does Rooney deserve his two game suspension or is the Premier League being too sensitive? Sound off in our comments section.
