Ronaldo banned for 5 matches for pushing referee

Thoughts? I think it's a bit of a stretch but he really shouldn't have pushed the referee.

Could have been worse tbh. Doubt Madrid will miss him, maybe against Sociedad since that can be difficult away game.

I didn't see any intention to harm at that moment to be honest. It was just a normal, somewhat playful response to something you don't really agree with; like your sister pushes you a little when you tease her.

Ref had a big one up his imo.

It is too harsh.

It's started from a ridiculous ref's mistake and a dumb celebration prior to that too :D.

I can understand rules are rules (they need to be consistent and to prevent provocation to the crowd in similar cases, which Ronaldo shouldn't have done). But 3 games all together would be reasonable.

I guess similar to Messi, it will go from 5 to 3, and even if it's not, this is just a beginning of the season, Real is fine without him for a few games.

You need to be able to control yourself man. Rules are rules. You can't touch the referee with any intention of an attack.
Considering this got 8 month ban from UEFA ↓

And this got 11 games ban from TFF ↓

5 games is "considered" pretty normal for a push.

Yeah most of these might provoke the crowd and can lead to disaster, I dont see that in this case though.

But you are right, rules are rules

4 matches is the minimum penalty I believe, so not really harsh.

@tuan_jinn Yes though. It can be obviously seen that Ronaldo regrets just the moment after he does that.

In games like these you gotta keep your cool and above that you have to respect the ref. The push is a silly way to be suspended but I guarantee you he will never push a ref again. 5 matches is standard and Im glad Ronaldo wasn't given special treatment of the offence. Real will be fine, especially with Isco and Asensio on fire.

He pushed the Ref, therefore the punishment. You cant touch them. Heck players who continue to crowd the Ref are supposed to be punished now as well. Ronaldo is smarter than that and now has to pay. I agree that Madrid will be fine without him though.

He deserves what he got. 5 match ban is nothing considering this is only the beginning of the season. He won't really miss much at all.

Seems to be consistent with other instances. I've got no problem with it.

Cant help to see people defending a player that pushed a ref after a decision which for me was quite logical, both yellow were absolutely justified.
But hey, its Ronaldo, when he dives it should be PK or nothing for him, so he can repeat it as many times he wants.

At Bernabeu ref could have whistled a pk, with the pressure. A diver is a diver, there is no difference who is the player.
