    That's what I thought, isn't it 2 games for a red card (2 yellows) and 3 for a straight red and then 1 for a lost appeal, Rio served a 4 match ban didn't he?

    Only for violent conduct charges. It was a straight red for stopping a goal scoring opportunity unfairly in the penalty area, not for punching him in the face.

    Exactly....Verm was sent off for obstructing a goal scoring oppurtunity (although tbh it was very harsh as Franco did not have controll of the ball) so its a 1 match ban....the extra match would have been applied for a stupid appeal like Utds was seen to be for Rio (although it was a clever one as it allowed him to play a game he wasnt supposed to be until appeal was held) Verm will not recived this as the appeal was founded and not just to get him to play in an extra game

    I don't understand how this wasn't overturned, wasn't even a foul let alone a red card. It wasn't increased to 2 games because the FA only increase for frivelous appeals, for example when Ferdinand attacked another player off the ball, was later banned and then for some reason appealed.

    I think he appealed so his ban start date was delayed and he could then play in the Carling Cup Final didn't he

    He appealed so the ban could not start until the appeal hearing took place...it was so he could play in the semi's against city....they knew he would get the extra ban but by lodging the appeal he could play while they waited for the hearing..another example of a very shrewd Sir Alex
