Retrospective punishment

Post by Byebyegeegee »

The Referee and Linesman totally missed the elbowing of Ben White today but If, as should be the case, Mitrovic is banned retrospectively, would it be fair on us? Of course it would penalise Fulham which would be appropriate but if Fulham were due to play one of our main rivals in the next three games, say West Brom or Brentford (which fortunately is not the case but could have been) then, Fulham missing their best striker, would certainly not benefit us. Had VAR been used then Mitrovic would have been sent off there and then (and we would have won 5 - 0 😀. But as it stands any retrospective punishment will not benefit Leeds at all. Is that fair?

In the end we get the best of both worlds. And he should get a ban.

We won yesterday with him on the pitch. ( A 10 man Fulham may have went into their shell, remember Wigan last season)
So we have the points and they, hopefully will be without for a bit.

Brentford wont win all their games, Fulham are still in the mix.

The elbow to White was deliberate and well after the ball had gone that’s why the Ref and Lino were looking the other way and missed it. If that had been on the streets he would have been arrested and yes if there had been VAR he would have been sent off.

Apparently the EFL day didn't see it either nor the replays as the storm interfered with their reception, plus the old VHS machine spooled the tape so they can’t watch it again such a shame, however they did managed to see Pablos act of pure porn with his pass to Harrison ( as can be seen on Pornhub) so they will be investigating some new made up rules so they can punish him and Leeds and hopefully take at least 3 goals off of us for that game

You can fully understand how the officals missed it, the act was done well after the ball had gone and they were watching play. 100% deliberate you could tell by his body language and his actions after. If he doesn't get at least a 3 game ban,I'll be amazed.

A three match ban is imminent, no way he'll getaway with that incident

No, I agree, its not fair, we should be allowed to play the game again, against a 10 man Fulham team.....oh no, wait........

Let them worry about that, we have more pressing concerns like opening up a 13pt gap over them in midweek which SHOULD rule them out from catching us. If results go our way we could be virtually up in 1 week .

Again for me this is why VAR is so important for football. Yes there have been teething problems but that will happen with any new system. The punishment must be there and then because it could just as easily have been the case that Mitrovic went on to score and helped Fulham win the match. That decision not being made could have ultimately cost Leeds £150m+ if we had lost and gone on to blow promotion.

Imo opinion if a player receives retrospective action any goals scored by that player in that match should be chalked off and the result adjusted which makes it fair for the opposing team otherwise it may be that future opponents will benefit only.
