This all day long.
They are professional footballers, they know the rules.
You are losing, you are one week away from a cup final, you are already safe in the league, you are chasing an opposing player through on your goal.... I'm letting him go through and not touching him all day long, and backing my keeper to get me out of a hole... if he scores, so what, I'm still playing in the cup final next week.
The red should have been upheld, it's the f'ing rules of the game and the players, coaches, fans, commentators, football writers, everyone's nan and their dogs all know the rules.
