Nonsense? Bless you, son. If you get the ball, which Shelvey did, you stay on the pitch and play goes on. Or at least that is how it should be. Football is meant to be a contact sport, and it's decision like this w high are making it more like netball.
You mentioned Shawcross' tackle on Ramsey. That one was different, he got nowhere near the ball, two feet on Aaron's shin, means he goes.
