Re: Bazaar not guilty

The incident proves beyond doubt that slow motion replays should never be used in acts of foul play. It is completely obvious when viewed at full speed that Baz had only microseconds to react, and if you reacted that quickly to the starting gun in the 100m you would be disqualified.

I said to the guys around me on Saturday that reviewing Baz's incident frame-by-frame was not right. Almost all tackles (fair or foul) look awful when viewed frame-by-frame. At the time of the incident I could not see how it wasn't a red for Brad. I genuninely didn't feel that Baz did anything wrong. Given that was my first thoughts I can't help but feel in this incident the ref and his fellow officials should be penalised in some way. At best it showed they had no empathy with the players or how the game is played.

Even 5 days on I cannot see how the ref took no action against Brad at the time. Brad clearly tackled with a swinging arm and connected with Parlings head. At the time that was surely a minimum yellow, more likely under new directives, a red card. Purely for taking no action against Brad should wannt action. The new directives are aimed at this type of tackle.
