4. OFF THE POST: Cruel and unusual punishment for Argentine
Argentine attacker Carlos Tevez stormed out of the stadium after being subbed by his West Ham coach Alan Pardew. Tevez quickly apologized but Pardew insisted that the 22-year-old must be punished for the tantrum and allowed Tevez's teammates to choose the penalty.
They have suggested that Tevez be forced to wear the jersey of Argentina's archrival Brazil during a week of practice sessions.
"The first idea was to give me a financial sanction, another one to gather all the balls after the training session, but when the Brazilian shirt idea came up they all lifted their hands," Tevez said. "My teammates have a great sense of humor and they have asked me to do that, but they know it will be impossible."
