It’s Only a Game of Football – Oscar Pistorius Judgment on Twitter

In their reaction to the no-guilty verdict on the murder charge against Oscar Pistorius, Twitterers praise Oscar Pistorius’s defense as the best in the Barclays Premier League.

And supporters of Manchester United and Arsenal plead with their respective managers to sign up Oscar Pistorius’s defence:

While an Arsenal fan pleads with Arsene Wenger

A Manchester United fan seems to be having his wish come true:

Oscar Pistorius is so invincible that when he makes a crunch tackle there will be no video evidence, although that can send managers of opposing teams fuming.

But the real wonder in all of these is why a man without legs could be taunted as a credible footballer that can help fortify Premiership defence? Perhaps, the twitter commentators are using the no-guilty judgment to have a laugh. Rio Ferdinand, a very influential premiership football, is having none of it. And he tells his almost 6 million twitter followers so:

Ferdinand, is obvious, is also having a laugh!

Earlier today, Oscar Pistorius was found not guilty of murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Judge Thokozile Matilda Masipa said at a Pretoria Court in South Africa that there was not sufficient evidence to convict the double amputee track star, who competed in the 2012 London Olympics, of a premeditated murder.

But Oscar Pistorius might be convicted of a lesser charge of culpable homicide (manslaughter). If he had been found guilty of premeditated murder, he could have received 25 years. But if he is found guilty of manslaughter, he could face a maximum of 15 years in jail.

Here is the breaking news from your darling station, the Nigerian Television Authority – also known as NTA:

And compare that to how a more serious news network, MSNBC breaks the same news, with pictorial evidence:

Oscar Pistorius has been found guilty of the manslaughter of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp by a judge in South Africa.
