So was Gervinho's ban for gently flicking a piece of lint off of Joey Barton's face.

Seriously though, it should only be a three game ban if someone really gets hurt. Otherwise, it should just be a one game ban.

it is excessive but how can you ever judge if a player is realy hurt and how hurt would they have to be for it to be a 3 game ban.. that idea would be to vague..

and no1 can complain.. rooneys an idiot for kicking him

It's all in the eye of the beholder ain't it? United supporters should be happy with this anyway as the games hes banned for the league will still be running so it means he will be rested for them.
