Cry Wolf…


First leg of the Champion’s league Semi-final at the San Siro… Inter vs Barca. Last 20 minutes, and Dani Alves bursts into the penalty area, leaving Wesley Sneijder at his wake. Sneijder, in desparation, tries to tackle Alves from behind… he gets nothing of the ball, and quite a bit of Alves’ leg.

Stonewall Penalty….

Not given. Alves is shown a yellow for diving.

Ridiculous decision by the referee.

And, but, for all my love for everything Barca, let me agree that Alves dives. Often. And the referee is human, and made a mistake that was affected by Alves’ history.

Not acceptable indeed, the referee is there to do a job and he failed miserably at it. But…. but cry wolf? Unfortunately yes.
