We appealed. It got denied. 4 games.
He'll be back to fitness to score the goals for us.
So baffled by this, I didn’t think it was a sending off. I thought he took the ball, but might have clipped the other player as well. Maybe a booking at worse. 4 games ban is a joke IMO.
It could've been worse.
Don't unsuccessful appeals get another game tacked on?
Only if deemed 'frivolous' I think.
The speed and force he went in at would have counted against him, he did absolutely fly into the tackle and couldn't have pulled out if he was second to the ball, which he wasn't. So I can kind of understand it, even if I don't fully agree with it.
I know why the ref has given it but it is the wrong decision.
Endangering a player perhaps?
Well surely every time a player kicks a ball he is endangering a player if that player puts his head by the ball a second after he's kicked it.
The FGR player was late to the party and endangered himself by going into a challenge well after the ball had already been won.
Says it "Remains at 4" so from that I'd assume not?
4 Game ban for that is ridiculous.
There was an additional one because he was sent off earlier in the season.
