What is dissent?

I know it’s not local but it’s hard to pass this one up: Paul Gardner’s amusing column about the Mascherano sendoff last Sunday in the Man Utd v Liverpool game at Old Traffod.

Evidently Gardner hadn’t seen this collection of video evidence when he concluded that referee Steve Bennett was wrong to send off Liverpool’s Javier Mascherano for “talking.”

Finger in the face. F-bombs. Persisent. Public. Personal. Bennett tried to stay away, even jogged by him with the finger to the lips, “Ssssh.”

Good sendoff.

Kids, don’t try this at home.
