As the guy tried three times to bust Coleman's cheekbone, I think each attempt is worth 3 games.
You know, in the rough, tough sport of Rugby,a citing officer would dish out a lengthy ban for this kind of offence. 3 games just isn't enough.

A team should be able to make a couple of challenges a game and the 4th official can look at it on the replay. It wouldnÂt take any longer than it does for play to start again when someone is faking injury so I donÂt see the problem with it.
Every week it seems to be some bad call being discussed and it just doesnÂt have to be like that anymore. ItÂs not in other sports.

It's not the dog in the fight, it's the fight in the dog.

I think if a player is banned for any assault similar to Cisse's then he should be banned automatically for three matches plus those games to be played against the team he was playing against when charged.
Referees are continually missing the physical assaults especially from dead ball situations and it is getting worse. I want to see penalties given for manhandling players without any attempt to play the ball.
The rule is that if a referee gives a yellow card for what would normally be a red card, then it is deemed over with. How can that be fair when two Man City players should have been straight red-carded in the last game but cannot be further punished retrospectively.
The game is being brought into disrepute and I am fed up with the shameful bias that some referee's are getting away with.

If a player elbowed a team mate of Pat Van Den Howe he'd spend the rest of the game waiting to get lamped. A player is less effective if they're constantly looking over their shoulder waiting for the inevitable.
Cisse made a bitch out of Coleman and not one of our players did anything about it. I'd prefer to take a red card and have the proof that our players are standing shoulder to shoulder. Remember the Neville tackle on Ronaldo that ignited a season?
Or maybe your way is better. We did the right thing and didn't retaliate, kept our discipline and all 11 men on the pitch and ...er... still lost.

A ban is all well and good but doesn't help us. Maybe it's time the FA retrospectively could strike off any goals scored by offenders after an incident to go someway to compensating the other team.
