The ref had no choice. If he doesn’t follow the rules he gets marked down and demoted next week. It was clear from Lee Probert’s face that he hated doing it but had no choice. None of the Leicester players protested. They knew what the punishment was going to be but chose to accept it. You could make a case for the FA rescinding the card but what happens next time when a player wears a t shirt dedicated to his recently deceased mother?
the law is to stop controversy, such as imagine if dictator a lot of people dislike died, but some people adored... If somebody shown that it would be a messy situation, so the rule to just ban everything is equal and fair. I do think referee should be allowed some leeway where common sense applies, sadly it's all black and white according to FA, so people should direct the anger to the FA not the ref.
