Owl Punter Strikes Again

13 Apr

Luis Moreno has struck again, and this time he chose an opponent. The Panamanian defender currently plying his trade in Columbia with Deportivo Pereira faced widespread condemnation back in February after fatally booting an injured owl off the field of play. The mascot of their opponents and hated rivals Junior Barranquilla, the owl had landed on the field and was struck by a pass. Lying there stunned, Moreno arrived and promptly kicked it off the field, leading to its death later that day. Video here (PETA people beware). He was fined and banned two matches.

I guess the whole animal backlash struck a cord with Moreno, so he decided to find a new target which might not garner as much rebuke, and could at least survive the impact…so how about a human?!

His victim? Andres Ramiro Escobar of Deportivo Cali. Having been body checked to the ground by one defender, Escobar found himself laying atop the ball only to be met by a thunderous swing of Moreno’s foot. A red card was promptly issued yet the culprit seemed surprised by the harsh penalty.

All kidding aside, this man is more an animal than the animal he actually killed. Somebody should tie this guy up and throw him in a cage with a bunch of owls and let them claw and peck away. He makes Nigel de Jong seem like a nice guy you’d let your kids scrimmage with.

    Can we get a Clasico Quadrupleheader preview? Is one side going to sweep it? Is it OK for Barca to get only 2 wins out of that if they win the CDR and get to Wembley?
