That's why Mancini and Redknapp are facing charges and he's not. When he criticised a ref for being overweight in an interview he got a 4 game touchline ban (2 suspended).
Personally, I think he's wrong on the point and that Cisse wasn't offside. For all the criticism he's getting though, he's hardly unique in moaning at/about refs, is he?
And Pardew's just made himself look like a twat.
