He's only doing that to avoid a ban from UEFA and FIFA.

Cristiano was childish but having 90% of the LOTR Orcs shouting you're a "rappist" since minute 1 of the warmup is excuse enough for someone to loose it's temper.

It really says a lot about the human quality of benfica fans. I remember when AC Milan went to Alvalade, Sporting fans cheers benfica icon Rui Costa. More than deserved. A portuguese player at portuguse soil, no provoking just recognition.

Of course in da Luz is different. Orcs tend to behave in animal terms so without any reason whatsoever jeered and offended ronaldo since he entered for warmup.

it's ppl like these that still put us portugal as third world in some areas.
