image for Rooney Decision Could Have Global Implications

The ongoing saga over the Football Association charging Wayne Rooney with using offensive language could have major worldwide implications for old and oustanding legal cases.

Should the FA disciplinary committee accepts Rooney's argument that he was guilty of the charge but should not receive a 2 match ban as punishment, then legal experts have warned that thousands of similar claims will be lodged in courts all over the world.

If the Man Utd striker is found guilty but walks away without any punishment, its anticipated that the International TribunaL Court in the Hague will be hit by lawsuits from a number of individuals facing charges of war crimes in the former Yugoslavia.

The Supreme Court in London is also likely to receive a claim from Moors Murderer Peter Sutcliffe that his life sentence should be waived in the light of the Rooney verdict.

Let's hope the FA don't bottle out.
