He didn't kiss the badge.
Goddamn it... I came here just to say that! I've just realized it!
I respect him for that! He didn't try any stunts just to win some fans! He was honest and maybe someday, he will kiss it, but with a clear reason!
Neither one of us wouldn't have kissed the FCB badge in the first year of following because we weren't still decided about football nor the team we like, but right now we all have blaugrana in our veins and we would kiss it without any questions or a second of thought! Mascherano is honest and he is like us!
And for the first time, I don't agree with an Ibra bashing! Ibra did kiss the badge but so did Adriano or Villa! Let's not give a bad example of what this kiss might mean on a long-term because there are also good and bad examples! The main thing that's important is honesty!
P.s.: and don't make me come more often with posts such as this one! This was a one-time-only!
