No punishment for Big Sam outburst
The FA have decided they wont be making a case against Rovers boss Sam Allardyce after his tirade against official Peter Walton after last Sundays 6-2 defeat at Arsenal.
Sam's grief was directed at the official after David Dunn was denied a penalty after a foul inside the area by Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen.
The FA have reviewed the comments in context and decided that whilst a bit over the top - Sam was pretty much expected to say what he said after such an incident.
Whilst I don't agree with Sam for saying that the penalty would of changed the course of the game - Arsenal were on fire that day and would of beaten anybody, Sam was right about the penalty decision.
The decision that Walton made was terrible. It was as clear a penalty as you will likely see all day and I have no doubt if it had happened in the other box it would have been given.
The right decision has been made here as the referee did need to be made an example of - even if Sam might not have been the best person to do it in the heat of the moment.
