A-League Round 22 Discussion


#101

The Snakes guna have a bad back bending over so much PICKING IT OUT!


#102

Lucky he’s got no spine then!! :wink:


#103

Justice there. Wasn’t a penalty


#104

Awwwwwwww what a shame


#105

LOL. That was a shocker of a penalty. I don’t think the decision should’ve been overturned to a penalty as I didn’t feel there was enough evidence Kamau had been fouled in the area, so not enough evidence to overturn the original decision. He was on the line, wasn’t he?


#106

Absurd decision, but worth it for that miss.


#107

Who is refereeing this game? I think he must’ve forgotten it can’t be a red card if Durante is trying to play the ball in that situation. Doesn’t even need to check VAR for that.


#108

I’ll tell you what is more absurd. Riera starting over Yeboah.


#109

Another dreadful decision. Two shockers from VAR in one game.

Also, how does VAR get involved for a second yellow? Isn’t that specifically excluded from what they’re allowed to look at?


#110

Llorente has obviously just earned his wages for the week. Its certainly not for his football ability.


#111

AFAIK it’s still a red if it’s outside the box. If a penalty is given then it’s just a yellow.


#112

Correct.


#113

It’s not just about being in the box. When it’s in the box if the defender makes a genuine attempt at playing the ball it is just a yellow card.

I sent a guy off last season when the ball was headed towards the keeper and he hip checked an attacked to stop him getting there, in the box. Red card, he was super surprised, he and the keeper said but it’s in the box so it’s only a yellow now.
Sorry fellas.


#114

Yeah I’d forgotten in the moment that the rule I thought of only applies in the penalty box.
