Cheating

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 2:46 pm

Its an interesting comparison – the professional foul preventing a one on one with the keeper and the intentional use of the hand leading to a goal.

Both intentional. One is to prevent a goal scoring opportunity, the other is to create a goal scoring opportunity. Both break the laws of the game. The differences? The professional foul to prevent the one on one is pretty hard to not see. The player is punished with a red-card, but has prevented the goal scoring opportunity.

The handball to create a goal scoring opportunity may be seen by the ref, may not be. Seems like cheating gets more attention if it goes unpunished.
