    Hey guys… Good program as always. I’m a United fan, so I guess it makes sense that I don’t see them getting special treatment from the referees. The last couple of years, they’ve moved the ball around pretty fast, they play wide, lots of runs through the box, etc. And when the other side has the ball, they counterattack pretty fast. A lot of those straight reds were for those “last man/goal scoring opportunity” type of foul. I’m not sure straight red is really the fairest punishment for that, but isn’t that the rule (or at least the common practice)? Some of the others are guys like Kompany or Shelvey lunging two-footed and recklessly at balls with their studs out. The yellows are mostly because they move the ball around and have defenders out of position.

    The reverse (as Kristan said), they don’t commit many yellows or reds because they’re generally technically sound and in position or fast enough to make up for it.

    I can understand Chelsea fans being sore about the way Torres got sent off, but Torres was stupid to put the referee in that position. He was on a yellow and the referee was already carding people for perceived diving or embellishment….yet Torres reacted to very minor contact as if his leg was broken. I know people say, “Well…you can’t give a second yellow for THAT because it changes the game.” But I think that’s bogus….guy’s shouldn’t be able to get away with MORE just because they’re on a yellow (and the suspect the refs will be reluctant to card them again).

    Anyhow….great show. Love the podcast.

    Thanks again for a wonderful podcast. Nice stats this week too. I personally think United get the benefit of the doubt a lot of the time from the referees, but this is BECAUSE 99% of the time they are technically sound, and have been for the last 10 years. I think a comparable example in US sports is the Miami Heat in the NBA. It seems like every time Lebron James or Dwayne Wade drives to the basket they get a foul call – but it is because they are driving so and with such effectiveness that you notice. Do they get the benefit of the doubt? Yes, but I would argue that this is for a reason.
