very slipery conditions today, had one of our players fall down in our own boxlying flat, the oposition then kicked the ball over his hands (which had not moved)(not deliberatly kicked at him) and a penalty was given, now ino this has been argued alot and its mojorityl ITOOTR but the law says sumthin bout ball to hand not hand to ball, and he was sprawled out on the ground and could hardly get out the way. was he hard done by or was the right call made

Where was the player lying,edge of box,inside 6 yard box.Were his hands in a natural position for example by his side,were they in a unnatural position directly above his head.Had he not handled what was the flight of the ball,for example was it headed like my shots for the top corner.Number of factors a ref would consider before deciding whether it was a pen or not.
was towards the edge of the box, did not block a shot (the attempted pass was parallel to the base line) i wudnt say they was in natural position but if u think whn u fall over forward u put ur hands out to support u and then they slipped forward so was above his head but lying flat on the ground but not much he cud of done about it
too true, (i know its allways hard to comment based on wht ppl say) just looking for sum input, my coach sed that it had to of been given (he has competed the ref course) and i was unsure why as from my POV it wasnt deliberate and he cudnt of avoided it in any way, was thinkin maybe he "had to give it" (as my coach sed) because it was in the 18y box. lol really dunno so thought id put it out there
