There is not a problem punishing diving. I hate it in football. But this needs to be a consistent application of the law and bet they will have second thoughts when Aguero does it.What is the process for it being reviewed? Who makes this decision and who are the panel that are reviewing these decisions? Do they have any bias towards any particular club and does the panel change if this is the case?Too many ifs/buts/maybes and questions and not enough concrete answers.
Top players from top clubs do not get punished because of the fear of back lash from high profile managers. There have been many dives which have not fooled the ref. What is the different in terms of guilt between Niasse who got a pen and the Man City/Arsenal/Chelsea players who tried and did not?
The rules stated it would only apply to situations where a penalty/red card was awarded, it's the same for everyone - they basically couldn't be arsed to have to review tons of incidents every week, so concentrated on the dives that have biggest impact
Pretty sure the rules established at the start of the season clearly stated that retrospective bans would only apply where a penalty was won or a red card issued....
Danny Murphy on the panel.Incredible that. I'm sure he's being completely fair and unbiased isn't he.
