If we are all honest players should not be getting yellows for what TAA did. He got shoved into the hoardings. We can argue if that is a free kick or not all day, but TAA has to have the chance to at least to get back into position.
There's been a change in the interpretation of the rules. Initially, refs often feel like they have to adhere rigidly to the edicts - then after some stupid decisions like this and the reactions, they usually start to apply some common sense.
TAA has been bundled off the park, not into the hoardings or almost seriously injured. It was a clear foul but even if the ref doesn't give it he should have given TAA a little leeway for not giving the ball back when he is 5 yards off the field.
