    He wouldn’t care about the red card I think. It’s not like he was going to play next week I figure. But the ref is crazy..

    If this happened in England, the FA would still refuse to overturn the decision.

    While they cannot appeal, it can still be overturned in special cases. I think this situation would apply to that.

    Since the quality of refereeing just keeks getting better and better, I think we should promote this referee to the highest level

    I like how the ref waited until he was all buckled into the stretcher to finally show the cards. Classy gentleman.
