For me it’s neither careless (as he pulls his foot away, and the attacker deliberately moves to draw contact that wouldn’t have otherwise happened) reckless or excessive force. So I don’t see how it’s enough to overturn, not a howler, and the definition simulation. Just because it might have been made to look like he was fouled it doesn’t mean he was, and we’ve been conditioned to accept this over the years as there’s not been enough discussion or focus from the pgmol into getting it right. “We”, not just Everton fans, as it happens for almost every team, just accept it.Shogun wrote: ↑Mon Nov 27, 2023 10:35 pmFeel like people look at the defender and try to have sympathy. For me, he's stuck his leg across, blocked his path and not got anywhere near the ball. It's a pen.TheRam wrote: ↑Mon Nov 27, 2023 10:26 pmThe last one is a clear pen.Cods wrote: ↑Mon Nov 27, 2023 10:23 pm Tom Cairney has just admitted on TV that he's thrown himself to the ground as soon as he felt contact, and he's laughed about it.

Why is the game rewarding players who are cheating and trying to mislead?
The last one is never a penalty either.
His thigh takes away his leg and knocks him off balance.
The first penalty is more of a debate
It’s not netball,…”contact, goal defence”.
