I think our over reaction was based more on.. Dammit, you've just gave all the other supporting fans more ammo and now we got to hear this shite all over again when we just want to enjoy watching you play...
Well that's exactly it. But I still wouldn't call it an overreaction. The problem is that he can't act like an adult, not that he caused actual harm. Like I told Bho via text, i get the argument that reckless challenges are worse. But that has nothing to do with it. Spitting on a referee, throwing a quarter at a player, blatantly diving in the penalty area, etc....all of these cause less harm in the long run than a season/career ending challenge. Nonetheless, a player wearing the Liver Bird shouldn't act that way. It embarrassing, and has tarnished the reputation of a club that was previously seen as always playing the game the "right" way (at least when it comes to on the pitch). We were never hated like United is now in the 70's or 80's, because we played attractive football and were professionals about it. Luis is not a professional, he's a child. That's the issue I have with it. Its not that he's trying to take a chunk out of Ivan's arm, its that he's defacing a once proud reputation every single time he does something like this.
