Balotelli escapes FA ban for assault on Song, Derry banned though

I think even most United fans would tell you that Shaun Derry being sent off was a bit harsh on Sunday -- at least, one would think his automatic ban would be overturned. However, that would require a reasonable response from the FA and it never came. Mario Balotelli will go unpunished for his awful challenge on Alex Song this past weekend. I've lost track on how many games he's banned anyway due to his eventual sending off vs Arsenal -- and from his plethora of other bans this season -- but he probably won't feature in the Manchester derby, no matter what the length of his current ban is.
