This question arises from the discussion of the Japan/Netherlands game in the WWC Ref thread. I have moved it out to avoid too much digression. I was curious why, having penalized the Japanese captain for deliberate handling of a shot at goal, the CR only showed a YC. Code1390 explained that handling that disrupts attacking play including a shot on goal which does not rise to DOGSO-H is to be cautioned. My follow-on question is there any official guidance or informal consensus of when a blocked shot would constitute DOGSO-H. The Law, of course, applies to both stopping the ball from entering goal and stopping an obvious opportunity for a goal. Deliberate handling covers both commission (intentional) and omission (risking accident) handling. By any plain reading, I think all would agree the shot in the Japan/Netherlands contest had an obvious chance of eluding the keeper and entering the goal. So, are there guidelines, or is it just ITOOTR who chose discretion to avoid heaping insult on injury?
