ABSTRACT
THERE are mistakes and mistakes and, while penalty decisions can be debated and forgotten, the yellow card issued to Gareth Bale (right) for diving after being blatantly fouled by Sebastian Larsson will linger horribly. Andre Marriner and fellow referees ought to be disturbed, too, for the anti-diving card encourages officials not only to favour offenders but stigmatise their victims. It turns the football-lover's stomach.
