If Emmanuel had done what he did on a rugby field he would have got far more than a three match ban. The deliberate stamp on RVP's face was beneath contempt, he should have got at least a six game ban for this act of clear malice. He knew what he was doing, it is obvious from the footage that he saw exactly where he was raking his filthy studs. The FA have given him a very lenient sentence. In my opinion there is no discrimination by the FA between the careless and the evil. Their disciplinary system is a farce, an inconsistent joke. Of note Adebayor has not apologised to RVP for almost taking his eye out, what a classy man he is.
They have now fined Adebayor 25 grand and given him a suspended two match ban for his pathetic celebrations. The FA stated:
"In reaching its decision the Commission took into account his admission of the charge, public apology and the extremely provocative nature of the abuse he received."
This doesn't cut it for me, it is weak in the extreme, it effectively condones players reacting to supporters which is a very dangerous precedent to set. Here is Adebayor's 'apology', if one can call it that, in fact he doesn't really make an apology at all, he just gets forced into admitting what he did was wrong and says he 'feels sorry' for what he has done.
Whatever one thinks of events it is clear we are better off without this immense penis of a human being in our squad. A lot of our morale problems appear to be rather Adebayor linked, it seems more than a coincidence that so many of our players have now fallen out with Adebayor. I am disappointed at the FA's weak words, they should appreciate what this cowardly money grabbing weasel has done to our fans. The man lied to us, he never apologised for his shambolic behaviour, he then behaved as if nothing had happened and put very little effort into several very big football games, and he now does this. The man is beneath contempt, money cannot buy you class Emmanuel, you are beneath contempt.
