The RFEF has turned down the Portugal international's appeal against his ban, meaning he will miss the games against Villarreal, Getafe and Elche
that's two ridiculous decisions that have had there appeals rejected! (andy carrol) that's ridiculous ridiculous!
fifa will never admit they are at fault..
Yet the ref has received a ban for giving two different reasons for the red card.
the main problem is that the ref didnt see the build up to the bust up nor did he ask the linesmen for their input. he didnt get the full 100% of the incident and handed out a card even he was unsure of why. that right there is just poor all round. before sending any player off with a straight red, the ref needs to ask linesman for help if they missed part of it. thats what they there for as well, to help the ref with decision making.
Ronaldo was out of line but he didnt start it. It may be too harsh a punishment in hindsight
