He was dumb to react. Now he has to pay the dumb tax.

What we all suspected might happen actually happened. Gabriel, who played into Diego Costa's game all too well last weekend, was handed a one game ban "with immediate effect" today, meaning he'll miss tomorrow's game with Leicester City. He had requested a hearing to explain himself, and apparently the FA listened to his explanation, nodded sympathetically, and made some condescending statement about behavior before sending him on his way.

Gabriel did a dumb thing, and now Gabriel gets a day off to think about what he did, and to think of ways to not do it again. Get smarter. Don't react.
