We have many cups of many sizes, believe me. Our cups are so full of love, overflowing with love actually. We should not be trading our full cups of love because we need those cups, they should be sending back our cups. We love our cups, they hold things. Bigly things. A lot of things. They are yuuge for holding things. I mean, how am I supposed to know how to drink something without a cup? I asked someone this, I told them, " How do I drink out of this bowl? It's not a cup!" The man told me here is a straw. What kind of man gives another a straw? Straws are for cups, not bowls! So that is why I am instituting an executive order on straws being exclusive to cups, so we can Make Straws Great Again!

I hope Conway can make his way back sooner rather than later, the winger situation is getting serious

We have completely fallen apart, 2 men down and it's 3-3 now. If we can even get a goal to win, I will be over the moon. I can't wait to see the highlights because 2 red cards is questionable decision making by the ref.

Last thing Rovers want is a replay. Damage already done losing two players to suspension.

From coasting at 3 nil up. Two sendings off, why why why? Are these lads not professionals. Fucking idiots. Make them clean the toilets and scrub the boots.

I’m more worried about Nyambe. The extra work he has to put in and then probably start the next league game. 3 nil up would should be striking the ball around.

Sounds like a replay in the works.

Only could read the stat line, and it is shocking how we go 3-0 up, get 2 red cards and eventually draw. We put out some reserves, Leutweiler, Ward, Wharton, Harper, Caddis, and bringing Travis on in the second half. So those are the bright spots is they got a run out.

I really want to see these 2 red card offenses because it sounded like it was an overreaction from the ref. Penalties hardly warrant a red unless it is absolutely dangerous and last man. Bennett's red I would like to see because he hardly is the type to be dirty or reckless.

Overall, the silver lining is there is another chance for the reserves to get a run out in the replay.

Penalties always warrant a red if he's denied an obvious goalscoring opportunity by fouling, it doesn't have to be nasty. Once the ref's decided it's a foul there, he has to go. Personally, I'm not sure it's a foul, the striker seems to go from standing up robin his arse with barely any contact from that angle.
Bennet's isn't caught on camera, and not being there I can't say what happened, but it certainly looks like he was about to kick out as the camera moves away.

First, thanks for posting highlights.

After seeing that penalty call, I am in the minority that if you are given a penalty, and the foul is rather routine (albeit eliminating a goal scoring chance), a yellow card should be warranted, not a red. The other team is already given a goal scoring opportunity in return of the foul, it's hard for me to believe that a red card needs to be given in those circumstances. But I am not the ref, and he calls it whichever way he sees fit.

Well, he calls it as he sees fit, but he has to follow the rules
Where a player commits an offence against an opponent within their own penalty area which denies an opponent an obvious goal-scoring opportunity and the referee awards a penalty kick, the offending player is cautioned if the offence was an attempt to play the ball; in all other circumstances (e.g. holding, pulling, pushing, no possibility to play the ball etc.) the offending player must be sent off.
It's a complete defensive cockup, that ball should never have been played to Harper with two attackers on him, he's too slow to react when it does come through, and then has to scramble and chase backwards, putting him in a position where he's the wrong side of the striker and anything he does will look like a foul if he doesn't get the perfect tackle. Personally I think he's made contact, but I can't see a foul, and he certainly wasn't trying to push or lunge. If he hadn't been through on goal, if it had been elsewhere in the area, I don't think the red would have been shown at all.
