The ridiculous thing is that in every single match you can lip-read players effing and blinding when a decision doesn't go their way, or even when a shot goes agonisingly wide. If all the players were wearing microphones every game would sound like an episode of The Osbournes.
This is the absurd thing about Dave Steer's viewpoint - swearing goes on all over the pitch. And let's not forget the crowd who are perfectly audible and somewhat given to colourful language. Should they all be banned from games? And God forbid that cameras and microphones ever enter the dressing-room at half-time! This is all a storm in a teacup. When will people get real? Gerrard hired a gangster to shoot a man in the face, he battered a bloke in a bar, yet he is still a cuddly role model, whereas Wayne utters one of the most commonly used words in the English language and is crucified by the middle-class media and outraged of Tunbridge Wells types like DSteer.
When will the idiots who run the FA be replaced / removed from running our game. Rooney has admitted his guilt requested that his ban be reduced issued an apology ....What else does he have to do ???
I seem to recall when he was on England duty and he was swearing at the cameras about the England fans on his way off the pitch NO action was taken by the FA (And even FIFA didn't poke their noses in) as I guess that they thought his absence would be detrimental to the England team ....HYPOCRITES

i think we are so quick to take responsibility away from ppl these days.
& this is the cas again with rooney.
lets blame the cameraman or the media.
if rooney doesnt act like an angry idiot then theres no prob.
what next? u can celebrate by doing a wanka sign to the camera?
its ok because most kids now what a wanka sign is.
its the camera mans thought for getting to close.
its like taking the blame away from your rooneys & crouchs for cheating, by blaming it on the girls who hand it to them on a plate.
its still rooney/crouch choosing to cheat.
we are turning into a blame everyone but me for my actions nation.
the blame culture is rife.
rooney would be the last person id want to go to war with.
a stupid guy with a really bad temper who over reacts, he would be a liability & more likely to get u killed.
ud want someone more levelheaded with u in a battle.
the keanes & rooneys wouldnt last very long, they would blow their cover & over react too everything. they would be far too trigger happy!
Bless 'im, just doing what comes naturally.
If I earned a fifth of a million pounds a week for a part-time job I think I might manage at some time to learn not to react if someone sticks a camera in my face.
I think the sentence is bigger than it need be but frankly, it's hard to feel sorry for Rooney, given his history of bad behaviour on the football pitch.
Pool, the counter "opinions" on here are very rarely unbiased. The vast majority of non-United posters who come here, do so for one reason only, to take their jealousy out on the supporters and the club. It's difficult not to be defensive when confronted with these arseholes, or to give "new" posters the benefit of the doubt.
With the amount of abuse Ian gets on here it's little wonder he's like he is.
"old Paparazzi trick" I'm sorry I'm not sure if that is the funniest or stupidest argument on this subject I've seen so far.
Rooney is paid million to perform on a stage and that stage happens to be a football pitch with cameras stationed all around. If Rooney has some sort of expectation that he should not be photographed in that arena, then you and the lad need a reality check. This is not some cameraman zooming in from a mile away while Rooney uses some industrial language in a nightclub.
I can, Stefan, deny that those in prominent positions in so-called 'far-right' groups are 'working-class' because they are not. Griffin, Barnbrook, and the English National Ballet dancer, Simone Clarke are working-class, eh? Pull the other one - it's got bells on it. As I have explained in another post, there are the lumpen elements of the working-class who vote BNP, Tory, support fox-hunting and love the Royals...go figure.
ASBOs are a complete disgrace. A friend of mine's son was given an ASBO for sitting on a wall with his mates - he has never committed a crime in his life, yet he is criminalised. If those who were looking at housing in inner cities as 'investment opportunities' dislike kids kicking a ball around or hanging around with their mates on a park then they should have stayed in the suburbs. But their viewpoint is essentially colonial, albeit directed inwards. If somebody commits a crime, then fair enough, but if somebody just wants to play football in their street or sit in a park with their girlfriend, leave them alone.
