Should Liverpool FC’s Glen Johnson & Ryan Babel Be Censured Over Their Twitter Comments?

Is it wrong for footballers (or anyone else for that matter) to air their views openly on twitter, without the media industry calling for their heads?

Whatever happened to freedom of speech and expression?

Glen Johnson went hard against Paul Merson.

While Ryan Babel posted the above picture saying “And they call him one of the best referees? That’s a joke. SMH.” regarding referee Howard Webb’s shockingly poor and biased non performance in the Liverpool V Manure game yesterday.

In fact analysing Howard Webb’s last 10 games at Old Toilet makes for very interesting reading….Alex Fergusons’ puppet indeed.

Perhaps the media pundit industry should be aware that they talk it while others live it & in today’s world people don’t need to use the traditional media channels to give reporters the exclusive scoop they crave.

    Oh give over! You’re just angry because it was your player. If it was a player from any other team we wouldn’t hear a peep out of you Livercesspool fans.

    And the whole rhetoric of referees favouring United, c’mon! Are you seriously still using that line? You Scousers have been saying that for the last 10-15 years, it’s not true and by eck! It’s getting old.

    Any player that brings the game into disrepute should be punished accordingly. Players are not paid to give opinions on match officials, they are paid to play football. So to Ryan Babeh and the likes, just shut up and do the job you’re paid to do.
