    Because of Wayne Rooney.

    Because rugby is a game for repressed homosexuals.

    Because part of me thinks the FAs actually love all this drama and petulance. Keeps it in the papers/media. Higher profile means more money.

    Because its a stupid rule that nobody wants to see.

    Also, rugby has natural breaks in play whereas they are running about all over the place in football. It would slow the game down more than half time cakes.

    It's not though. It would require the players to behave themselves.

    It is. All thats required is tighter enforcement of 'foul and abusive language' and the refs being backed up about it.

    Its a sledgehammer to crack a nut. Enforce the rules that are already there rather than creating new ones.

    Gerrard's a master diver. Would only yell at Suarez to improve his theatrics.

    Just be able to hear the ref talking as well as players round him.

    Players would get in line and there would be good feedback from refs on decisions and how they talk to players and vice versa.

    That alone would solve the respect and sporting behaviour problems.

    I also dont give a shit what they are saying. Its not gladiators, I dont care what the ref is saying.

    I do agree they, for their own sake, they should be mic'd up though.

    What if your captain is your keeper or even defender? Lets say the foul is near the corner flag of the oppositions half, you'd have to drag the captain 3/4 of the pitch, wait for him to talk to the player, then wait for him to get back before restarting. Would take ages.

    Saying it would 'slow the game' is bollocks - the game is already slowed by players crowding round the ref, arguing the toss about decisions, etc.

    The main reason it wouldn't work is most footballers are thick cunts.

    They dont, though. It happens barely once a game if at all.

    Surely the ref having to speak to the captain wouldn't happen that much either. And arguably, if it was introduced, maybe it would happen even less as time goes by.

    Why not just trial it for a month or two?

    Anything that can be introduced to cut down the cheating and general cuntishness of the players gets my vote. Even if it does potentially slow the game down.

    As I say, I think they just need to enforce the rules that are there rather than add new ones.

    I dont like people pissing about with what is, essentially, a simple game, so just book people for effing and jeffing and have done with it.

    Fair point, but I doubt it will ever happen. Instant yellow card for any swearing/dissent/arguing about a decision would be great if you ask me.

    Might get an increased number of red cards for a bit, but the players would soon learn. Well, 'soon' might be a bit optimistic.

    First attack and a goal though. Not sure we deserve it.

    Was always going to be the way, first 10 mins they run themselves into the ground. Class instincts from Fellaini and Jelavic.

    Should have been two though.

    Yep. Should be away. But then it should have been two against most teams we played this season.

    Can we please we out of sight by half time, so we can rest some players?
