My hunch is that if we bomb out of the ACL, which we will, The Dentist will be shown the waiting room door.

Craig Moore top of the list. This is his squad as much as Aloisi's.

Surprisingly the ref and neither the VAR nor the Review Panel saw anything in Pepper's two footed tackle on Rodriguez.
Spitting towards an opponent gets seven games. Badly bruise and half cripple an opponent and you are free to go.
It's a strange world.

slow mo makes the tackle look way worse than what it was. he jumps early as an intimidation type thing but by the time he actually makes the challenge he has a standing foot completely grounded and has some sort of control over the challenge. His studs are down by the time he makes the challenge and gets the ball first.  It is more just momentum going through. Interestingly Pato actually does the same sort of thing, jumps in two footed but is no where near the ball (i missed this on the first view as i was only watching pepper). Pato is actually still in the air two footed when pepper has one foot grounded and has played the ball.

I am with the MRP and the VAR with this one, it probably should have been a free kick because he does make contact with the ankle, a case could be made for a yellow as you could argue that it was reckless but defintely not a red card.
