What if it was against Gateshead/Lincoln/Cheltenham and Baxter/Rhead/Pell had taken the free kick?

No Baxter would still be 8 yards up in air screaming and appealing for someone to be sent off despite him having committed the foul. The cheating git

[quote=43]Think of it this way, if you'd been playing 5-a-side with your mates and one nipped in to 'score' a goal like that, it obviously wouldn't count and you'd tell him not to be such a male masturbator. Just because the Coventry player is a professional and there was a referee, doesn't make it any better.

I'd be pretty embarrassed if we scored a goal like that myself.[/quote]


Not if it was a goal that secured promotion!

Don't think the ref is going to change his mind on this one.

Would put a taint on it. Thing is, as soon as you start praising the professionalism of their player for trying his luck, you're taking a small step towards thinking the way that the likes of Cheltenham play is acceptable.

Agree that it should not hav stood in the spirit of the game. Canceling it was the easy route for the ref, just retake it, game continues. Hard for refs to get sympathy when they complicate the game themselves with no need.
If it stands, as it has, then it means the original kick back to Macca was the free kick (in the refs eyes), this opens up a whole world of possible contentious possibilities, just one would be what if the ball had reached Macca and he picked it up in preparation to take the kick? Handball, booking for Macca and a free kick for the opposition?
These decisions for me are the main cause of friction between refs and fans, and even players/management. Common sense never seems to prevail.

According to Slade in his interview on RH, the ref's assessor said the goal should not have stood and the ref has been reported for it.

He was off his game last week but still managed to get out and officiate.... though I use that term loosely!
