I did, that's because we're not premier League referees, if you were to make a call at grass roots where the ball hits 1/2 then it's a bigger headache than its worth because as I said nobody understands the laws as we do, I think that's a fair compromise considering 3 is well above the elbow anyway
Part of your job as a referee is to make the unpopular decision. You need to have the courage to make the right decision, even if it's unpopular.
No matter what decision you make, one team won't accept it.
Deliberate handling encompasses the entire arm.
"It's hard to sell" is simply not an excuse for only penalising if it's below the elbow.
People sometimes go ballistic calling for a foul when it's simply hit the chest. What, are you going to blow for a FK then anyway?
Everyone else manages to go out there and deal with the fact that deliberate handling is the entire arm.
Do your job. Refereeing was never meant to be easy.
