I think Rio Ferdinand is being treated unfairly. A Manchester City player did the same thing Ferdinand did and he only received a fine (which was way smaller than Rio's fine). Rio Ferdinand later passed a drug test and now he is getting banned for 8 months. This is just ridiculous because Edgar Davids got 4 months for failing a drug test. Ferdinand should be punished, but he should be suspended for a week, not 8 months. I really hope the ban is shortened, because even though I hate Manchester United I think this punishment is unfair.
