Very disrespectful to the ghana supporters

... I was an attempt at humor, perhaps a failed attempt, but I doubt he meant it in a racist oroffensive way, and it seems tabloids decided to run with it and blow it into a scandal...

There is lots of stuff going on in the world these days to get seriously upset about. TBH, this really isn't one of those.

I know but after the FA bans rooney for 2 games they need to show some consistency. Both Rooneys comments and Cole's could be considered offensive. Difference is Rooney did it in heat of the moment. Cole had time to think about what he said and still said it

... and I don't want the FA to be consistent when it comes to dumb decisions... ;)
