I noticed the Geoff Cameron red card in the Stoke V West Brom game has now been rescinded and the FA seem to have come down hard on the official himself by saying it was an "obvious error".

Clearly the powers that be didn't consider the slap to be violent conduct and that Yacob made the most of it but it put pays to the idea that if you raise your hands it ought to be a red.

I don't understand how you can smack someone on the back of the head and get the red card overturned. Ridiculous.

Jesus, is that how he got it overturned? It's just violent act after violent act with this bloke. I guess two wrongs do make a right after all.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
The FA essentially changed the rules when they set the precedent of reducing the Matic ban.

'Violent conduct' as retaliation is OK as long as you are really really cross cos it hurt.

Their chairman is high up in the FA, gotta help when things like this arise.
