Bottom line. Some refs are afraid to issue cards.
See? I can post a pointless, inflammatory comment too.
Now, can we get back to the constructive, civilised discussion we were having? You don't have to play anymore if you don't want to.
I have it from the horse's mouth, Federation Francaise de Football (FFF), who state that it is a penalty and RED card offence for DOGSO!!!!!!!
The head of the my county referee's committee, and some of his colleagues disagree!!!!! He (and they) states penalty and YELLOW card for USB. However some other members of the same committee agree with the FFF's opinion!
Well finally, the definitive answer from the FFF (after higher consultation I think!).
Indirect Free Kick to the attack, last defender (not the goalkeeper) handles the ball and stops it entering the goal. Penalty and Yellow Card.
