    No, I think Arabcheif is suggesting that ?

    In the video...? yes, that's exactly what he's done.

    we are seeing the same event from different angles.
    - you see the 9 delaying the pass to get a PK
    - I see Brits cutting down his options, by denying him the freedom to time the pass as he wishes.

    He hasn't. If the 9 had at least 3 options of a pass when he picked up the ball. Run, Pass open or pass to either of the players on the blind side. All of those would've been available to do as soon as he picked up the ball. Also if he'd thrown a proper pass the ball would've went over the head of the crouching player again not limiting any options available to the 9.

    I understand what you're saying but I just feel that the call and your interpretation is very harsh on the retreating player, who is clearly doing his best to get out the road. The subsequently the 9 deliberately "passes" the ball at him instead of in the direction of one of his own players.

    People can't just disappear in thin air. He's gotta go somewhere.

    He still gives him the freedom to contrive a penalty, fortunately :P

    Presumably from consistency you'd penalise the retreating players at the quick tap&go, for cutting down the BC's freedom to run 10m unimpeded? It's the BC's right, even if they intentionally choose a path that causes that impediment.

    The difference is that Brits was not initially in the way, then he ran deliberately INTO the channel. (to get in the way a little)

    He didnt get there accidentally
