Well, I have not said that you are whining but many football critics and journalist slammed Mou's actions.

All-in-all, though Marcelo (that guy is the dark spot in Madrid) and Pepe played rough, Barca's players were diving too much at times. Take the tackle of Pepe on Alves for example. Alves dived before Pepe even touched him. If he stayed to play the ball, the tackle will have seem plausible. Yeah, Pepe came to make a foul but diving is as criminally wrong as making the tackle.
Also, Mourinho uses provocation to succeed as a game-plan strategy, so where's the problem? Take the first 15 minutes of the 2nd Half itself. Barca, knowing that they psychologically hurt Madrid with the 2nd goal before half-time, started provocate Madrid's players through dribbles only. The likes of Sanchez, Thiago, Messi, Villa made dribbles on each ball they got and tried to mock Madrid. Ego clashes and fouls actions were bound to happen.
What the difference of provocation levels between Mourinho and Barca? Barca provocate on-field and Mou does it off-field! Nevertheless, they're still mind-games and on terms on football skills, both teams played well, so I don't see the reason why Mourinho should be sacked. The "novelty" from Mourinho's Real is taking shape. Even if it differs completely from Barca's style, that's not a reason to detest it.
