Fcuking hell, now they are saying that Ramirez fouled Stephens because he "smashed his shin against Stephens' boot"

Brighton are a previous lot.

Dale Stephens clearly didn't deserve the red card and they provide stills of him winning the ball, totally ignoring the fact his follow through went straight into Ramirez's leg and opened a gash deep enough he had to be subbed off.

It's Ramirez's fault for not wearing proper shinpads, you know, because it would be perfectly OK to do knee high, studs up challenges as long as you hit a shinpad.

The latest gem from today re: their appeal being rejected. The FA are corrupt, can we boycott the FA? Please boycott the FA and get kicked out of the Football League, that would be amazing.

An email from a Brighton fan in the Football 365 mailbox:

So the FA have decided to uphold Brighton’s Dale Stephens’ three match ban following his sending off on Saturday. This despite all the replays showing he clearly won the ball before accidentally catching Gaston Ramirez’s leg. This incident not only influenced the outcome Saturday’s game, but also our playoff matches against Sheffield Wednesday and hopefully Derby or Hull. This seems an extremely harsh punishment, especially considering Mike Dean was initially going to show a yellow card before Ramirez knocked the card out of his hand. It appears that Ramirez’s decision to not wear appropriate shin protection will have a huge influence on two, possibly three games he won’t be playing in.

I cannot understand the FA’s decision in this case as it shows players that they can influence a referee’s decision. Vardy quite rightly was criticised for his reaction to being sent off, but you can understand why players berate the ref if they can see an obvious benefit to their team, as Ramirez’s actions have proven.

The playoffs may seem unfair after our excellent season to date, but we knew the rules at the start of the season and most fans would have been delighted to be involved if offered them at the start of the season following last season’s Hyypia induced shambles. It was no surprise that your tame Palace fan was in favour of them as his team always seem excel, unlike Brighton to date. Looking forward to Friday’s game now. Hopefully Andre Marriner is better at managing the game and the player’s safety than his Premier League colleague.

Yep, if Barnsley can make it up there'll be 3 new grounds for me next year. Somehow never made it to Villa Park, and I'm looking forward to Burton.
