there is zero doubt that Balotelli intentionally ran at/into Luiz trying to draw the foul.



I didn't know you and Mario were so close of friends that you shared each others thoughts. I guess I should know better not to question a psychic.

About the reply I'd expect. Though I commend you for not trying to deny the obvious.

Pretty much. Why would he pull his body away from Luiz if he wanted to draw contact? Are you that retarded? He clearly moves his torso away from David's body to try and squeeze around him.

Look, at some point, its ok to admit one of your players did something wrong. We're not going to think any less of you for it.

IMO. Balotelli was looking for contact and Luiz was as well. Shouldn't have been a booking. I would have been fine with a PLAY ON.

Exactly.

I'm pretty sure Alexsandar Kolorav has committed war crimes of some sort. There, it's out in the open.

Just commenting on the fact that you obviously knew what he was thinking, that's all. I was impressed.

This pretty much sums it up.

Our entire club is a shite show right now. However, I don't think that was a foul on Luiz.

Look I don't have any problem with you thinking what you want to think. Healthy arguing isn't the issue.

But to say that the issue is "inarguable" makes you look like a douche bag. Its clearly a grey area.

The referee's call yes, what Balotelli was trying to do, no.

Looks like simulation, not a dive to me. Play should have continued although it looks like Balotelli knew what he was doing. A yellow on either player is harsh.

Thats what I though... Balotelli was looking to get the contact and Luiz made sure he got it...

I'm honestly shocked you can not admit Balotelli was clearly trying to draw contact. It's clear as day to every "neutral" besides you and Jumbeaux. What are you afraid of?

What does him trying to draw contact have to do with anything? That's what he's supposed to do. If they carded people for that, every striker in the league would be sent off. He was trying to go around Luiz. He got BODY CHECKED to prevent this. Why is this so hard for you to see?

I'm not "afraid" of anything. I thoroughly enjoy watching Chelsea this year and I have Luiz on my fantasy team.

That doesn't change the fact that Luiz initiated contact with Mario.

Well that's pretty much what the argument has been about so it has a lot to do with it actually.

Well I already said about 10 times he should not have been carded so I'm not sure what your point is there.

quote:

You just said he was trying to draw contact, so which is it?
Also, if he is dumb enough to kick the ball to the right and then run to the left to try and get it maybe he does deserve a card.

Have you guys ever watched soccer? This happens like 10 times every match.

He kicked the ball away and ran into the defender trying to draw the foul because his other option was to lose possession. I have no problem with what Balotelli did, put it in the refs hand. Especially because yes, usually the ref gives the foul to the offensive player because soccer refs are awful. In this case the ref wasn't buying it. Good for him. However, he didn't need to card Balotelli to prove his point.

He's probably a racist like Clattenberg.
