Why Garners Yellow was 101% right

You can see here as Imrie has the ball Garner is already starting to swing his leg

and again here you can see it further in motion, the ball still at Imries foot with Garner about to make contact with it

but as you see here, Imrie has nudged the ball away

Garners foot is in full swing and can't back out of it now and now there's only one way it's ending. You can actually see Imrie brace for the impact.

as a result, Imrie get's skelp in the arse by Garner

So honestly, it's a reckless challenge and in the rule book a reckless challenge is typically a yellow.

Going by the checklist for a red

Guilty of serious foul play. No I wouldn't say so, Garner clearly makes a play for the ball and imrie puts the ball away. There was intent to kick the ball out but not Imrie.

Violent Conduct. Now getting kicked in the arse is by most peoples standards violent, however it's the intent that is key here. If Garner deliberately does it, like jumps up in the air and elbows him after looking to see he was there, then that would be violent conduct. However a mistimed tackle doesn't constitute as that unless it's a very damaging injury that is a result (like a mistimed kick gouging someones eye out)

Spits on an opponent. Self explanatory.

Denies the opposing team a goal scoring opportunity. Again self explanatory and not applicable.

Uses offensive language. Imrie would've gotten red carded for this to be honest lol

receivers a second yellow. Self explanatory.

So taking all that into account, yellow for me is the correct decision given the circumstances of the kick. There wasn't any intent to harm imrie and Garner was aiming for the ball. Imrie knocking the ball out the way is ultimately what caused it.

So what I'm saying is is imrie should've been red cardes for foul language :whistle:

Aye shin to the thigh boot to the arse.

Imrie makes a meal of it, but that's modern football.  

Europe,  Epl can see it as a red...

Garners reputation goes before him so he needs to be clever! 

Do we need our Striker making rash challanges at the byline?

It was one of those - If someone did that to one of our players I'd want a red. If it is one of our players doing it to someone else, I try to give them the benefit of the doubt and say yellow.

on Saturday I agreed with Walter and Neil who both said red but now I'm not so sure.

The Record has a big long winded article criticising the refs performance. Don't remember seeing this any other time a ref has a couple of contentious decisions. No author cited of course. 

I think Garners was just an old fashioned clumsy challenge that would usually only be a yellow. It's only a big deal because it's us and him.
