    Ramires was unlucky to get a red IMO yet his reaction so well OTT and Oscar schooled in the JM class of dirty tricks was looking to get someone carded or himself booked.
    Perhaps Oscar wants to come back to Europe.

    Football is probably more popular than every other team contact sport combined so of course you're going to see more of it. You've got every single cultural type in football and each ladder from every culture. This is just a representive of human competition.

    Every season you see people in the NFL or NBA throwing legitimate punches. If someone would do that in a top league in any country in football it would go viral so you're going a bit overboard with your comment. It's mostly players pushing opponents away from their team mates. The shouting makes it look more heated than what is actually going on. You're also viewing this without context of the match.

    But yea, to completely bully your point, ice hockey has this behavior encouraged. If you'd pay attention to that sport you wouldn't think much of football brawls but due to their lack of popularity in most countries you won't see much of it, especially if you're English. Imo it's also way less embarrassing than for example cycling where everyone is a cheater.

    Don't see that big of a deal, and think is a lot worse to be tackled by behind out of anger than kicking the ball towards someone. Both sides acted like pussies but at least it was fun to watch how it all escalated so quickly because of that prick. :lol:

    I'd find these "fights" way less embarrassing if they did throw legitimate punches. The way they shape up to each other as though they're ready to throw down, when everyone involved know that's never going to happen is the worst thing about it. Don't think I've ever seen a "fight" in professional football which wasn't thoroughly shameful for everyone involved.

    Much as I love him, Fabregas is far more snide than Oscar could ever aspire to be. Oh and there's a guy called Costa you might have heard about.. :lol:

    They seem to be extra harsh on discipline. I don't know whether that's a good thing or not.

    He'd probably get a 1 game ban here, if anything.

    It's made me wonder if we're too lenient on discipline. Players get away with this kind of thing all the time, but it's obviously not something you want to see. You would think what with all the changes to the modern game, stamping out petulance is an easy fix and I guess China is pretty big on it.

    I'm not sure what kind of argument you can even make in favour of being able to boot the ball at two members of the opposite team and not think it'll back-fire into a brawl.

    I know what you mean but I figure it's all about trying to get the opponent to actually throw a punch so that they can go down and get them sent off. It comes across as snide.

    Hahaha fair points, but I think what pisses me off about Oscar is he will do the dirtiest tackle like raking his studs over someone's Achilles but then start crying if someone so as looks at him funny. Costa gives as good as he gets, while Fabregas is a pussy, and very very snide in his own right, he's no Oscar for me.

    Any player that leaves a top European club to play in China is in fact a mercenary since it's not a prestigious competition to be playing in. So how are they supposed to raise the level of their domestic league if not by buying players like Oscar and Ramires? The Ronaldos and Messis of the world won't go there for any amount of money.

    He can watch a 90 minute movie and by the time it's over he's earned the money to pay the fine.

    The fine has little importance. However, the club management will be furious their £60m player is out for 8 games.

    Banned for 8 games for kicking the ball at an opposition player? Harsh in the extreme that.

    A legitimate punch is not only assault but a real long ban. You'd have to be really stupid to do that. In fact, getting into a real fight in a sports match is really stupid. What's the reason for it? Are you so immature that you can't help yourself?

    That's the point. If you're able to control yourself to the point of not punching someone then calm the feck down and stop throwing shapes. If you genuinely lose control then chin the cnut. Anything in between is pathetic IMO.

    It's the regulations that has made it pathetic. Two people yelling at each other and bumping heads is normal. You see it downtown often without either party expecting to fight, it's just blowing steam. Move a head close to someone and it's a headbutt. Please...headbutts are banned in boxing. A player obviously coming late into a player that has just headed the ball is way more violent behavior yet is only a yellow card. You can headbutt people at will so long as you are both jumping (or punch if you are a goalie).

    Also these shapes being thrown. A lot of nasty players are trash talking, pinching, stepping on toes and pulling shirts all game in order for someone to lash out from behind when they of course finally get annoyed like a fly was in their face the whole game. I feel like the nasty players overall benefit the most from these strict officiating. I say unless there's obvious intent involved let the video ref committy sort it after the match instead of sending players off for practically nothing.

    Still can't see what he's done wrong. Unless the whistle went before he kicked the ball.
