It's to do with looking in the mouth of a horse to determine its age by its teeth, as they change as it gets older. It was considered rude to do it if you have been given a horse as a gift.

Then shouldn't it be "never look in a gift horse's mouth"? Stupid expression anyway.

I've said it for years now, referees should be looking at the foul itself and not whether the player being fouled falls over or stays on his feet. If they did that there would be no need for players to dive because they would be looking at what Dann does and whether it constitutes a foul.

So if Niasse was the first player this season officially charged with "successful deception of a match official" .... what about the players rolling around on the grass faking injuries when they've barely been touched? Or are these deceptions not looked at because it's mainly the "big 6" teams doing it?

My question is the official calls a dive and gives them a yellow, is it also an automatic 2 game ban?

Seems like Niasse is being punished for the ref's incompetence, doesn't it? If he had called it, Palace wouldn't have conceded a pen and would have won the game so they are right to feel aggrieved, but that's hardly Niasse's fault.
