EPL: Don't whine, just win

Wayne Rooney has turned into a dastardly Disney villain.

Had his Twitter outburst been any more cartoonish, he would've twirled his twirling moustache and laughed like the Count on Sesame Street.

On Monday, he criticised the most benign of football creatures - respected commentator Martin Tyler.

Attacking Tyler is like shooting Bambi. But Rooney couldn't help himself. He rarely can. When he scores, he reigns. When he tweets, he whines.

He speaks out to put down. He tweets in a foul temper. His words are often tools of revenge.

Cuddly commentator Tyler risked Rooney's wrath by referring to the Manchester United forward's attempt to chop Cardiff 's Jordon Mutch in half as a "bad tackle".

Tyler was echoing the sentiments of a global TV audience and merely saying it how he saw it, which is pretty much the job description of a competent sports commentator.

Mutch and Rooney were tussling for the ball when the United man booted the midfielder in the back of the knee.
