Currently banned for 3 matches for his stamp on Man U's Adnan Januzaj under new FA disciplinary system despite been yellow carded by the referee during the match.
I wonder what the Fulham defender Sascha Riether made of Rooney's latest crazy kick on Mutch.
Thing is, Fellaini and some Man U players were calling for the FA to throw the book at Riether after their game against Fulham. Hopefully Rooney won't escaped punishment to become the second player to be charged by the FA under a new pilot scheme where a panel of 3 ex- referees reviews video evidence of incidents not seen by match officials or deemed worthy of a red card.
"Hopefully Rooney won't escaped punishment to become the second player to be charged by the FA under a new pilot scheme"
"An FA spokesman said: 'The change in regulation can only apply where an incident has not been clearly seen by the match officials. 'FIFA regulations also forbid upgrading a yellow card to a red.'"
Once again, slayer shows how little he knows about the laws of the game!
"Hopefully Rooney won't escaped [sic] punishment to become the second player to be charged by the FA under a new pilot scheme where a panel of 3 ex- referees reviews video evidence of incidents not seen by match officials"
"not seen by match officials" Geddit?
If it was "not seen by match officials" how did he get a yellow card?
Idiot, there is no further punishment, and there is no panel!
..."Rooney's latest crazy kick on Mutch"..... are you suggesting he's kicked him before...?...or is it just your poor grammar...
....as for Rooney...if it's thought applicable...then he should be held as accountable as other players are under the "pilot scheme"....he might well be....so what's your beef. tonight...?
...ohhhh....wrong board again...I guess you were just looking for a ruck...?...:)

This is what I'm suggesting Rikk...............
'On a weekend where the main discussion has been; is the refereeing in the Premier League poor or terrible? It’s sad to say that the final game of the weekend, terrible took the victory!
Neil Swarbrick, a referee who showed a lack of bottle all afternoon, let Rooney get away with what I would describe as assault. There is no way what Rooney did can construed as anything but a red card. Out-muscled by Jordon Mutch, Rooney saw it fit to leather him through the back of his legs.
The ball was nowhere near him. The aggression was Rooney-esque. The referee saw it but only booked him.
Of course, if Mutch had committed the same offence at Old Trafford, the referee would have had the red card out in record time. It was dirty, it was dangerous and it was full of intent. It’s a red card all day.
Instead, the Manchester United rule came into effect. In fact, the whole game was refereed in this spirit. Cardiff players were booked for offences that United players were allowed to get away with. Fellaini was warned and then fouled more without picking up a booking.
Rooney, who shouldn’t have been on the pitch, spent his game berating the referee even when decisions went his way. Peter Whittingham picked up a yellow card where Tom Cleverley escaped one for a similar indiscretion.'
