    Me too. Less of a penalty, than the one we should have received.

    If decisions really do even themselves up over the course of the season, we really are going to get some soft penalties before the end of the season;

    Is it only me that turns it off after 2 seconds because I don't want to waste my time and data watching an advert before the highlights start?

    Soft as you’ll ever see. Yet another game we’ve not had the rub of the green when it comes to refereeing decisions, to put it mildly.

    I thought at the time that it was a penalty, from my view in ESL.

    Having seen that, I am bloody fuming. As big a dive as any seen recently in the Premier League.

    Amazing that the highlights leave out the Hammill one which was an absolute Stonewall.

    Now I know I'm getting old and wear glasses but I have watched the replay several times and paused it at various points but from the camera angle Yids left hand looks like he has momentarily grabbed the left arm of the -already off balance - opponent which spun him round. Does look harsh especially as the player was already off balance and heading nowhere but I can sort of understand why the ref gave it. How many of those at the game now arguing it was never a penalty were in the Ponty I wonder?

    Sky obviously did not deem the other disputed 'non-penalty incident' worthy of including in the highlights so can't comment on that

    EDIT: Just noticed the position of the ref. When the ball was played forward the ref was on the half way line and set off at a jog. Therefore he must have been a long way from the incident and also the view of the contact would have been blocked by Yids body. Therefore he either 'guessed' or the linesman gave it.

    Aren't WE the ones who choose the highlights to send out?

    I'm sure that Whitey's said 3 or 4 times that that's not the case.

    You're right he has. I'd forgotten that. Don't we place markers at times though or something so that they know when something worth showing happens?

    The penalty decisions were bad enough, but the thing that had me fuming was Hammill. He had an easy pass available to an unmarked McBurnie in the box, but opted to hang on to the ball. Yes I think he was brought down and yes I think we should have had a penalty, but if he'd played that pass I reckon McBurnie would have stuck it away.

    Never. They keep introducing technology to mask incompetence - or something worse

    If they were accountable to someone or to some organisation, all that would happen is that they would get suspended or sacked. Eventually, there would be no referees left as they all make ludicrous mistakes.

    In my opinion the only sensible solution is video replays, which are already used successfully in rugby (or unsuccessfully, if you're a Wales supporter and watched the rugby yesterday!). If we don't introduce video replays the only sensible thing to do is to rant and rave about it on here even though we all know it won't change anything.

    The sensible thing to do is to have referees interviewed after every game like a manager is. The caveat being that the interviewer can only ask the question "can you explain decision x in minute y please" and cannot given an opinion or attempt to harass the referee. That way the referee could explain why they did or didn't give a decision and we would all at least know.

    Actually the most transparent way of dealing with things is that the referee wears a microphone that the stadium hears. It works in other sports but the fa darent use it in football because it knows we would all hear the bent refs give unfathomable excuses.

    The level of incompetence is so often so one sided that you have to suspect something more sinister afoot
