Costa: More sinned Against Then Sinning With apologies to The Bard Himself. King Lear (3.2.49-60)

Let the great refs
That wave those dreadful cards o’er our heads
Find out their failures now.
Tremble, thou Diego-hating pundits,
That has within thee undivulged crimes when playing for Liverpool in the 1980s,
Unwhipp’d of justice: hide thee thou video evidence.
Though perjured, and thou similar ex pro of virtue
That art incestuous: caitiff, to pieces shake,
That under covert and convenient seeming
Hast practiced on player’s life: close pent up guilts,
Rive your concealing continents, and cry
Those dreadful referees and pundits grace.
I am a footballer
More sinn’d against than sinning.
