    Can’t see how that was a red- tiote was looking for the ball and thrown off balance by colback

    Hard to see why that is a red. I understand the studs are up but he barely touches him and may have been off-balance due to the fact that he was being shoved at the time. To me it seems like refs are giving out red cards for things that are almost reds. To me if he really went into his knee and didn’t sort of avoid him then it would be a red, but he’s barely touched the guy. How can you get a red card for barely touching someone and not even sliding?
