I am English and so naturally want to see England do well in Euro 2012. But, I was really upset to hear that one game of Rooney's 3 match ban has been suspended. When a player is red carded for an overly zealous or mistimed tackle, then maybe a 3 match ban could be seen as harsh and an appeal would be in order. When a player is red carded for violent conduct then I think a long ban is in order. If a player subsequently commits the same crime then I personally don't want to see him in an England (or Tottenham) shirt ever again. In my opinion Rooney should never have been allowed to represent our country again after the Ricardo Carvalho incident. If any one of us had behaved like that in our place of work or in the street I'm sure the Police would have been involved. I have an 11 year old grandson who is mad about football, he plays for a junior side and is a keen England supporter. Gentlemen like Rooney are, like it or not, role models for young footballers and supporters, this show of leniency does not send the sort of message I would like to see conveyed to my grandson and other young players. Rooney's kick on Dzudovic may have been a bit of a girly sort of assault, but an assault is what it was. This sort of behaviour should not be tolerated and I think that UEFA, by suspending part of his ban are saying that 'Violent Conduct' is not a serious issue in the modern game.
