What Did Dickov Do Wrong ?

What Did Dickov Do Wrong ?

Although it was only the first Saturday of the season, we've already seen some well dodgy decisions from the referees and their assistants - some things in life never seem to change.

The Everton v Watford game got a lot of coverage for two shocking penalty decision gaffs and there were others dubious calls in the Blades v Liverpool and Newcastle v Wigan matches.

In our own game, I can understand Corradi's dismissal and I have no problems with that, but can someone tell me why Dickov was yellow carded?

Just what rule exactly did he break as he was being man-handled by Carvalho in the penalty area whilst waiting for a corner ?

The decision should surely have gone against Chelsea !

I thought the referees were clamping down on defenders holding opposition players at set plays - it didn't seem like it yesterday. If it happened in open play, it would be a yellow or even straight red, but Carvalho (and others) get away with murder in those dead-ball situations.

Seriously though, just what did Dickov do wrong?

I hope City appeal it as it was a disgraceful decision.

Dickov did nothing wrong it was a shocking decision and this is the downside of having teams full of foriegners, they play in England the way they always have in their home leagues and now the referees are being influenced by the playing style.

What was the offence? I didn't think being charged down and bundled over in the area was something you could get a card for... It's going to take a Pakistan-type scenario to get the refs to change. The whole team have to walk, together, to protest at these sorts of things, it's the only way change is going to come because the referees are too afraid of annoying the big clubs to apply the law.
