Is there anything to stop the forwards from deliberately kicking the ball into the opponent's arm to get an easy penalty? Every striker has seen what happened to Tottenham defender Dale or Ward of Crystal Palace, and they think that they can use this absurd rule to profit. Aiming at the arm to kick, and then get the penalty.
In the first battle against Tottenham, Newcastle had no threat. Finally, they sent Andy Carroll to fight for the header. He did it and put a ball on Dale's arm. The Tottenham defender doesn't know anything about it. Obviously, his "crime" is not having long eyes in the back of his head.
Banks (referee) pointed to the penalty spot. Newcastle, who did not shoot in the field, had a chance to steal a point and Tottenham was robbed. The implementation of this new handball rule is ruining the Premier League. Crystal Palace’s Ward was punished for having arms. Teammate Townsend yelled: "Football is fucked ruined!"
The guards are now punished for having two arms. We want the Premier League to be dramatic, but not such drama.
