In regards to Rio,
Let's not forget the root of his "pettiness", he was dropped in favour of keeping John Terry in the squad....the man who racially abused his brother, and given a rubbish excuse for it.
Just as I agree with Rio in that if the man that was chosen over him was also the man that essentially caused the problem in the first place for him to be then left out, after also racially abusing his brother, then given a rubbish reason as to why (when we all knew why), then I wouldn't mind giving them a big middle-finger.
Really now, when the incident occured, this place was filed with people mocking the decision and sympathisizing with Rio, even encouraging him to be petty.
He goes and does it, now the same EG forum is calling him petty and selfish.
Can't win really.
