I know that the ref is on firm ground for deciding to award a red for an intentional elbow, but do the referee's on the forum feel like that play required a red card? It is essentially an elimination game in a major tournament, and the elbow itself was not particularly egregious (to the head/throat and/or with a lot of force). It seems to me that a yellow card could have addressed the situation, where a 3rd minute red card is just a death sentence for a team. Its a question more to the notion that in big games, the refs try to avoid affecting the outcome of the game unnecessarily. The attitude can be a problem when they refuse to enforce the laws of the game, but at the same time there needs to be some consideration for the referee unnecessarily affecting the outcome. Or, to put a finer point on it, does a Collina make that call in a champions league final? Should they?
