One thing I have always found interesting is the difference between discipline English football vs. discipline in the NBA or NFL in the USA. The Arsenal -- United match last week will likely result in 20 something matches worth of suspension. If the exact same thing had happened in the NBA, it is doubtful that anyone would have even been ejected (except maybe for the Vieria kick). For instance, the Lakers and the Kings of the NBA got into a huge brawl before last season with punches thrown and connecting. I don't think anyone got suspended -- not even Rick Fox or Doug Christy who started swinging at each other and then wrestled on camera in the tunnel. In the NFL, a flag would have been thrown for Unsportsmanlike Conduct -- probably for both teams, but little else. The only ejection so far this NFL season I am aware of after 3 weeks is Rod Smith and that was because he hit the ref while trying to hit another player. Had he missed the ref, he would have been penalized, but probably not sent off. I for one like the stricter standard. I play footie and there is almost always a brawl in our games because the ref cannot control the match, and our league does not punish people for anything. Unfortunately, the behavior seen at Old Trafford happens every weekend in my league, and after a 1 game suspension for a red card, the perpetrators are back again (I have somewhat clean hands since I have picked up only 3 yellow cards in 10 years). What does everybody else think?
