So a racist comment from the stands leads to a life ban from the ground, while a racist comment on the pitch only gets 4 games?
The difference between the two is that only one case would have been proven in a court of law! Amazing how teflon Rio has escaped punishment for the 'choc ice' comment
, but then again as we all know 'racist' abuse only applies one way!
Slightly concerning that of the 3 words alledgedly uttered the one that caused 'offence' is the only one that's actually true, whereas it's perfectly acceptable in the FA's eyes to use the other two freely and escape censure
