The BIG debate: Should Ryan Babel be fined for giving his opinion?
Despite the continued controversy over when Ryan Babel is actually going to hit some sustained form for Liverpool, the Dutchman’s off the pitch antics have landed him in hot water this week for his comments about the performance of referee Howard Webb in the FA Cup match against Manchester United on Sunday.
There were two key moments that sparked debate, one involving a penalty awarded to Dimitar Berbatov and the other, the red card to Steven Gerrard.
Babel, on the popular social networking site Twitter, commented that, “They call him one of the best referees? That’s a joke. SMH [shaking my head].” He also posted a mocked-picture of Howard Webb in a Man Utd kit.
Babel later apologised, but should he have to?
