VIDEO: Dalglish Swears On Camera (SWEAR WATCH)


Swear Watch 5 by swearwatch

Law 12 doesn’t mention a camera, rather simply “using abusive and/or offensive language.” A Sky Sports camera came to Wayne Rooney and he swore at it. Kenny Dalglish walked over to Arsene Wenger where a Sky Sports camera was stood and swore at Wenger. Both people were guilty of breaking Law 12 and both people’s “abusive/offensive language” was audible to the viewing public at home.

To get in touch with the FA you must first register as a fan. Then you can contact them using this contact form.

If you have not heard back from the FA, contact the Independent Football Ombudsman.

The Mirror writes about the FA’s double standards when Dalglish is concerned. Will he be charged?

    BAN HIM FOR SAYING PISS OFF? SCOTT YOU’VE LOST THE PLOT …..

  3. Baza5x says:

    its taken about 5,000 F words for rooney to get a ban so surly the KING has a lot more to say before he gets a ban ?

  4. King Eric says:

    “You could pass him off for Danny Murphy’s love child too. Both have bubble heads and odd bodies.”

    Nice one Kings mate.

    Well lets hope the reserves smash the rentboys tonight and the youths on Wednesday.

  5. Steve says:

    Come on guys, you really are clutching at straws for wanting to get Kenny reprimand for telling Wenger to piss off. Wouldn’t you like to have been the one to have said it to him?

    Man.U, Chelsea and Arsenal will all finish on 77 points, with Chelsea taking the title on goal difference with Man.U finishing second

    LUFCWhite says:
    To be fair, you can’t hear Dalglish like you could with Rooney.

    Wash your fuckin ears out then, what a plank.

    Yes but does that mean its ok, ffs.

  8. Steve says:

    No Matt, it doesen’t make it right, but it’s hardley the crime of the century is it?

    Kenny is fiercely proud of his Liverpool team and Wenger is a moaning, whinging gas bag. So he can piss off!

    Steve says:

    Man.U, Chelsea and Arsenal will all finish on 77 points, with Chelsea taking the title on goal difference with Man.U finishing second

    Ok the above is Steve’s logic, we are currently on 69 points and so need a possible 8 out of the remaining 18 that are available, ok lets see if we lose to Chelsea at home and even Arsenal away (despite the fact form would suggest nothing so easy for either team)
    This wouls still need us to get the 8 points out of the 12 remaining, now if you take how shocking Blackburn and Blackpool are at the moment I imagine they are really thinking they could beat us!

    Everton have a bit of form and will be tough and Newcastle away is slightly tricky but I don’t see us getting beaten but hey what do I know according to Steve we are going to drop a possible 10 out of 18 points with 3 home games, mmmmmm a wind up does need to be backed a modicum of pausibility.

    And in that context neither was Rooneys the crime of the century.

  11. bayobuya says:

    No running away from the fact that the FA messed up AGAIN! Claiming to make an example of Rooney when they just wanted him out of a couple of important games for us.

  12. Oscar Madison says:

    Man, I swore too after that match. What a nuts weekend, had me cheering a Liverpool goal. Although we should give Dogleash a little slack, after all he was swearing at Wenger.

  13. EricDantona says:

    So where’s the part where he says “fuck off”?

    Because I’m afraid it’s not on that video.

  14. scan74 says:

    scouse uk will be happy when you fuck off our website

    that is all

  15. Steve says:

    Matt, I think the game at Newcastle will be a draw and Everton will get a draw at Old Trafford. Arsenal will win 1-0 on the 1st of May and Chelsea will do likewise on the 8th. You read it here first!!

  16. T. says:

    Damn, my favourite song now gets a new meaning.

  17. feedemscraps says:

    Fucking hell,United lose a game, scousers get a draw, “Yorkshire’s no1 team” are about to miss out on the playoffs and suddenly they all want to have a chat on a United blog.

  18. james21 says:

    What is it that People won’t get. Read the Rule for gods sake.
    Rooney was not banned for swearing into a camera. Are you getting it now?
    Its great Kenny told Arsehole Wingepants to Piss Off! What is being proved since Rooney was charged though is that the FA Have double standards. Piss Off is a swear word (allbeit tame) and can be deamd by some as Foul language. Therefore Kenny Dalglish should be charged simple as that. Joey Barton told the Ref Directly to Fuck Off 3 times he should be banned. Simples! Is it sinking in?

  19. dannyB says:

    If dalgish would have been HEARD swearing then there would be a case, however it was inaudible. Rooney went straight to a camera and shouted it and was clearly audible. I don’t understand why you’re continuing this.

  20. dannyB says:

    And the fact that you have played music over this emphasises the point. if his swearing was audible, surely you would have left it in and not played the music?

  21. NotoriousRedDevil says:

    danny B. You must have one of those computers where you talk and it types the words for you. It has been explained why people are complaining but either you refuse to read or you simply can’t. You sir are an idiot.

  22. dannyB says:

    But what is all this seriously going to achieve?

    Scott writes to the FA, they reply, yet he keeps on writing. Do you really think that the FA are going to take this seriously? You come on here, you call them all names under the sun, then expect them to sit back and say ‘you know, they have a point here?’

    This sort of stuff is not going to endear the club to the FA, quite the opposite. if you think the FA have a vendetta now, what will they be thinking after reading stuff like this?

  23. Gandalf says:

    @steve – come back here after tomorrow match and we will see how good is your first prediction or wish!

    @dannyB – we are not trying to endear ourselves to FA… we have no need to. As fans of our club and as folks putting our money and time into the game, we all want to see the rules enforced correctly. Why do you think we should allow for blatant bias against a United player without making noise about it? I for one hope the swear watch continues. We are not afraid of FA, let them throw their worst, its not like we have not experienced it before now, have we? It will be all the more sweeter when we win the league in spite of those fucking FA.

  24. NotoriousRedDevil says:

    I’m of the opinion if someone is upset about something do something about it instead of whining and doing nothing. If there’s people who then get ridiculed or slated for doing something about it then those people doing the ridiculing are just as bad as the whiners who do nothing. This doesn’t apply to football but walks of life. We as a nation (England) just sit back and whine these days and I for one am sick of it. It may not endear us to the FA but we will get answers, but they’ve hung us out to dry since 1999 with the whole FA Cup debacle. You’re either with us or against us and if you’re against us stop fabricating the facts. The FA messed up here,they had an opportunity to redefine the rulebook and didn’t, the fans aren’t being pedantic, if the same thing happened in the legal world there would be cases brought against the FA. Sport should be no exception.

  25. NotoriousRedDevil says:

    @ slim. In order to get Fabregas we would have to pay north of £50 million and I can’t see the glazers giving Fergie that amount of money on one player. Even if we go in for him cit-eh will just copy, all our transfer targets. Thats why everyone we sign would have to be kept under the radar like Hernandez.. I can’t see l’arse keeping their mouths shut if we were interested in him. In fact the first thing they would do is alert cit-eh. Every club in the world has shake the bottle monsour on speed dial the way he pisses his Dads money up the wall.

    Insert “I think” with, “I dream the” I’ll maybe give you the newcastle game but that was before they sold carroll. Arsenals home form has been great of late hasn’t it and I think its clear after the EC 1/4′s we’ve got the measure of the Chelsea Pensioners.

    We expect it to acheive sweet FA but this isnt the point, we’re having a bit of fun pointing out the hypocrisy of the FA as for you, you can’t even grasp the basic tenet of the argument, i.e. Rooney wasn’t banned for swearing into a camera cos (I cant believe I’m having to repeat this to another numpty) there is no rule that covers it, there is only the law against using foul and abusive language whether directed at an official or not and this is what the FA stated when banning Rooney, this law is designed to prevent bad language in all areas of the pitch and all we are pointing out is that it isnt routinely applied where it could be, except perhaps when it suits.

    On side issue Danny, why the fuck are you bothered what we do.

    Swear watch has got ESPN’s notice and a response from Brooking…

    http://www.espn.co.uk/football/sport/story/86170.html?CMP=OTC-RSS

    “After Dalglish appeared to tell Arsene Wenger to “p**s off” as the two managers rowed briefly in the seconds following Sunday’s dramatic 1-1 draw, it is reported that the FA was contacted by numerous Manchester United fans demanding that the Liverpool manager was also punished. “

  31. RussellRed says:

    My two pennys worth is this: Rooney looked into the camera and saw knowing he would be heard by millions, there was an intention to his act. Dalglish was annoyed by Wenger’s (typical) blinkered view that suggested Liverpool cheated the referee to get that penalty, thus Dalglish swore in annoyance at Wenger but not intentionally into the camera. Therefore I think authorities will look at these two cases and see a distinction between the word ‘fuck’ being mentioned deliberately to the camera and viewers and the phrase ‘piss off’ being picked up by the camera rather than being spoken to the camera. I recall Ferguson being caught swearing on camera during the 2002/3 in reference to a difficult start to the season. I don’t recall Ferguson being given a ban, but surely if the conspiracy theorists truly believe Manchester United are victimised then wouldn’t that have been a time when the FA or Premier League could have banned him. I fully understand NRD argument that there should be no distinction between the two approaches to swearing, but I believe most people do see a distinction.

    __Thats for them to worry about Danny Boy, no United supporter really gives two fucks what those ABU pencil pushers “think” and we never will. They’ve banned our Manager for fuck all this season when other Managers have said WORSE, and they’ve made our Striker a scapegoat for EVERYTHING wrong in the game while Terry captains ENGLAND at Rio’s expense. Why? Apparently because they have to be seen to punish those at the top, maybe they should tell that to the British Crown Courts? We always get the worst punishments from the FA, compare Rio missing a test to other players FAILING them. IS there really anything else they can do to us they haven’t done already? The thing to remember is United are not dependant on securing the good favour of the FA for our results. United as a global brand are bigger than the FA. Personally, im not in favour of informing on other players and managers swearing, but I AM in favour of seeing the FA brought to some kind of account, so LET THEM have a vendetta against Swear Watch, who gives a FUCK???

    RE: “Swear Watch”

    Thank you for contacting The Football Association.

    The FA takes a dim view of any foul and abusive language used at football matches. The clear distinction to be made in the Wayne Rooney case is that the language used was directed specifically at a television camera lens, whilst clearly audible to the viewing public. We will always take a view on every incident reported to us by match officials, who also have the ability to apply Law 12 in relation to insulting and abusive language or gestures.

    The FA values the opinions of football supporters and we thank you for getting in touch with us to share your views.

    Kind regards
