Wow. That was not justified imo! Even though Levi shoved him near the end of the brawl, that guy was riding Levi's back like a horse. didn't coming close to challenging for the ball. If anything he should've gotten the red and Levi a yellow. I would love to hear the referees assessment on this in the report.

I am trying to see what it is Levi did from the beginning to deserve a red card. That is a bullshit call. The club should protest.

Evidently it is not what was done to him but all about how he reacted.

Agreed. That's why I thought he should've gotten a yellow for the shove (which the guy milked btw) since most players will have some sort of reaction based on the challenge. If Levi said something in addition then the red can be justified. The other player should've had a red card too, don't you think?

wow. allyuh men real biased boy. #7 ride he back and get an acceptable shove -- yellow. But if you look at the shove on the #8 in real time, you can't allow that in a football match.

1. The foul aggravated Levi. He was practically in a headlock without having signed up for Greco-Roman wrestling. Zlatan would have reacted in a similar manner - although it is unlikely a player would have run up on his back as happened here.

There is a sequence of events that should be viewed as connected. Viewing everything as a totality, my takeaway is that Levi hasn't earned respect in the league and there's a constituency ready to peg him back. The sport is physical and mental. Some days both are "on". On others one of the two may be "off". The footballing "twisties" are "on" when both are "off" (submitted into evidence: Fernando Torres).

2. Maybe someone in the idle segment of the media will get around to periodically soliciting the Nakhid view on the Greek league and on Levi Garcia's weekly contributions.
Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, the outgoing president of Croatia, said corruption was so embedded in her country that at school children who cheated in tests were celebrated as “heroes”. A recent Eurobarometer survey found that a majority of Croatians felt affected by corruption.

Sound familiar, T&T?
