I've yet to see what Brunners told me to have a look at so I'll check that out at some point and maybe adjust my stance but I still stand by my judgement of what I saw until then. I don't quite understand why that part of this is so important to you. We're all talking about our judgement of what we saw and until what we see changes, why would we change our opinions of it?

When the panel overturns it though don't you even have a small inkling of "well, I guess I was mistaken in this case"? When almost everybody but you and one or two others think something, don't you have to start considering maybe your viewpoint is flawed?

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

I can't imagine that game getting approved by Hasbro...

The ref wasn't even going to give a yellow.

He was going to give a yellow, NW confirmed that today. He got talked into upgrading by the linesman.

Of course it makes me question whether I was right but it doesn't automatically make me think I was wrong? That kind of feels like what's happening here. The panel ruled it wasn't a red card so everyone who thinks otherwise must be wrong. I can't remember the last time we had that much trust in the FA's competency, for a start.

That makes more sense with what happened on the pitch, yeah. As mentioned just above, he gave the foul immediately as it happened and went to his pocket.

It's not just the panel though, is it? It's the panel and a good 95% of the people who have viewed the incident.

The sooner a few you realise people can have differing opinions the sooner this place will be a lot more harmonious.

Opinions can still be wrong in instances like this.

Not to sound too condescending but surely you all have better things to be doing on a Friday night than argue over a decision that went our way in the end?

Brexit, Religion, UK Government Virus response, is BLM marxist, do goldfish have memories longer than 2 seconds, should Branthwaite have been red carded?

Take your pick from those.

Why. Because the FA overturned it? By that logic we have to assume they were correct that there was no wrong doing in the Huddersfield/Fry incident. Sure Dael ended up with 11 stitches, could’ve lost his eye but everyone on oneBoro were clearly wrong as they said there’s no case to answer. 
 

Obviously I’m being facetious but just want to reiterate that fact that the FA should not be classed as infallible.

And again, I'm not basing it entirely on the FA's judgement. In this instance the FA just backed up what 95% of us knew.

In that instance, the FA didn't back up what 95% of us knew. They giveth and they taketh away.

All I'm saying is if you're in the absolute minority and authorities and people close to the subject all disagree with you, maybe you need to re-evaluate your position.

I'm not so sure where you're getting the figures from there mate as after viewing what we saw initially, the photo and the view we saw, it was at best a 50/50 split between those who said definite red and those who weren't seeing the foul. Some were convinced by the photo on its own which quite rightly was misleading without anything else. The GIF I showed combined with the photo for me absolutely shows he catches Bacuna, one way or another. 

For what it's worth though, I did just go and watch the Inside Matchday thing you asked me to watch and I can definitely see what you see which may well be new information to some; McNair gets the ball first. Here's a new GIF from that angle.

mcnairred60fps_slow_2ndangle.gif.b0120b6c61fda3acffab51c2cd0db7da.gif

What this doesn't change for me is that he does catch Bacuna with his studs. From this angle it looks like it might be a scrape at best but he catches him still, for me. The only incident I can think of in our history where a studded challenge wins the ball then catches a player resulted in a red card is one I've already mentioned to you. Dale Stephens for Brighton in the 1-1 promotion draw.

A genuine question then, one I don't know the answer to. What's the difference between this and the Stephens incident? If you go back and watch that, his boot is obviously higher but I don't believe it's what is considered a high boot as its below his waist when it catches Ramirez. So what's different? We pretty unanimously believe Stephens deserved a red but the growing consensus on this one is it isn't.

You have been on the Internet before, haven’t you 😉

Or maybe there is a more conclusive angle/angles that the independent panel have seen to make a decision to overturn the red. Go back into the match day thread it certainly isn't 95% of posters agreeing it shouldn't have been a red.

    • Good win tonight. Challenge now is to carry it on and find some consistency - something that has eluded Neil so far. As far as I’m aware, we only managed to win 3 games in a row once last season and were stupidly inconsistent from January onwards. I won’t be holding my breath but hope to be proven wrong utfb
    • I hope you applauded him during his warm up as the Boro legend that he is.
    • Reading Sheff Utd's forum they seem to think Adlène Guedioura would have been the answer tonight. Really?  REALLY?
    • Oh and one other thing I picked up on tonight, I don't know if anyone else saw it. But Payero looks so done. When he was coming out to warm up he looked completely unenthusiastic. I know some players just don't do that much but he wasn't even doing anything really, just sat watching the game. At half time, he came out to do the warm ups with Jepson and again looked defeated. His body language was that of a broken man. At one point, he stopped before doing his last sprint just to hit a nearby ball towards goal seemingly for the sake of kicking a ball. Then he completely disappeared. The other lads stayed out pretty much until the teams came out, just passing the balls about. Payero walked off and only appeared again just before the end of half time. Maybe it was a nature calls moment? Or maybe he genuinely is broken? It might be nothing but he just looked lonely and defeated, it was really sad.
    • Don't scream and shout about it but we actually played well tonight. Bamba was a clear man of the match, Lumley also played very well for the 2nd game running. And if you have to say it... the midfield worked. Of course, it helps when they're getting on the ball and able to play. All 3 of our midfielders tonight had a similar number of touches, similar number of passes. Compare that to the weekend when Crooks and Payero had nowt of the game because we didn't even bother involving them. We didn't have a great deal of possession compared to them as you'd expect, they're one of those fancy passing sides that @Blancocan't stand. They move the ball a lot, they try to pass quick and often, round the corner, between the gaps. Their problem wasn't getting to our box or around it though, they had enough chances to score. It was that when they did, they either couldn't finish or Bamba/Lumley made a block/save. This probably saves Warnock's job for the foreseeable. I felt very odd about that given the week we've had, winning didn't feel as good to me and I'm not usually like that at the game. A win is always a positive thing and I should have been celebrating with a little more conviction but part of me had royally had enough and was willing to accept a loss tonight to see if it would allow us to move on.
