Firstly should Gary Neville be censured by FA for giving Tevez the bird? Giving someone "the finger" is one of the basest violations in civilized behaviour unbecoming of a United club captain. Moreover he is on the Management Committee of the Professional Footballers' Association.
Now come to the meat of this post! On an Argentinian radiotalk show (ESPN Argentina), Tevez excoriated Neville (his ex-compañero) for being disrespectful and call him a 'bootlicking tarado (dumbass) '. Is Tevez justified in taking umbrage?

What does others say about this tiring & lame United captain?
Yes two wrongs does not make it right. Mancini, you can rest assured has cautioned Tevez., citing Tevez fatigue after the game for his ill-advised words about Neville. Has Fergie cautioned Neville? Was Gary fatigued during the game? IMO United should restrain Neville for his loutish behaviour or else retire him, for its unbecoming of an United captain supposedly touted to be the English Paolo Maldini. A position, that served as a role model, that comes with responsibility not just to United but to the millions of United young fans internationally. Piers Morgan was right in saying that 'somebody should put the awful Gary Neville out of his misery' (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/article-1245553/Piers-Morgan-Surely-time-somebody-awful-Gary-Neville-misery.html#ixzz0dU4Cw7r0)
