The FA (Football Association) has decided to charge footballer Rio Ferdinand for acknowledging a tweet from a Twitter follower earlier this month which described fellow player Ashley Cole as a “choc-ice”.
Cole was called a “sell out” and a “choc ice” after defending low life team-mate and “good friend” John Terry during his racism trial. Terry had been accused of racially abusing QPR player Anton Ferdinand (Rio’s brother) during a game in October 2011. He admitted to calling Ferdinand a “f**king black c**t” but was later cleared of any wrong doing by a judge.
Yesterday those fools over at FA headquarters issued the following statement:
“The FA has today charged Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand with improper conduct in relation to comments posted on Twitter. The allegation is that the player acted in a way which was improper and/or bought the game into disrepute by making comments which included a reference to ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race”.
Before the decision was announced Ferdinand tweeted:
I am just stunned right now. This is RIDICULOUS. The FA accuses Ferdinand of bringing the game in to disrepute? He didn’t even call Shoe Shine boy a “choc ice” . But when John Terry called a man a “f**king black c**t” during a televised football match those punks over at FA headquarters did nothing. They just hoped it would disappear.
However on Friday the FA announced that they had charged John Terry for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand. But they made this announcement when everyone was focused on the official opening of the Olympics so it conveniently slipped under the radar. I believe that Terry will be cleared again.
John Terry, Ashley Cole and FA bigwigs all deserve to be thrown in to a gully.
