And I think you're wrong. I think it wasn't given purely because it would have required the video ref to overturn the ref's decision and they are always going to be more reluctant to do that than to go along with the on field decision. I said on here a few years ago that this would be the case because so often on BT Sport when they had Howard Webb on, he would just agree with the ref even when it was fairly clear the ref had made an error. He would talk all sorts of bollocks to justify why the ref had made the decision he had made and it was clear that when VAR came along this is what would happen. I know you don't agree with me but just watch over the coming months and years and I am certain you will find that apart from offsides which will be more or less black and white decisions, VAR will be an exercise in the video ref desperately trying to not overturn on field decisions and they will only do so when they have no option and that "clear and obvious" bit will give them the option not to overturn way more than it should. Anyway, we aren't going to agree and only the video ref knows why he did what he did but we do both agree that he should have given a pen.
