not just Hazard kicking a ball boy but his club defending him on their official twitter site - "Has football gone mad? Hazard is sent off for kicking the ball under a ball boy attempting to smother the ball rather than return it. #CFC" .
They just can`t bring themselves to say sorry for anything

Robert you`re spot on about the 6 seconds - for whatever reason its a rule that is seldom enforced these days. Hopefully one of the things that will come out of this incident is that the authorities will look at ways of putting a stop to time wasting. Currently a player can get a yellow card if he waste too much time but unless he`s already on a yellow that doesn`t seem to act as a deterent. What is needed is something that really punishes time wasting and the obvious punishment is to award a time penalty - say 30 seconds or the first offence which increases by 10 seconds for each subsequent offence. I`m sure that if players thought that a couple of minutes could be added on if they wasted time they wouldn`t do it. And to avoid a losing team trying to gain an extra couple of minutes by time wasting their time penalty would work in reverse - the seconds taken off instead of added on.

Its not just the 6 second rule that seems to have vanished, defenders appear to have a free rein when it comes to holding on to an opponent`s shirt in the penalty area and the attacking side are allowed to block a goalkeeper as much as they like - anywhere else on the pitch and its called obstruction. And I seem to recall that putting your body between an opponent and the ball without making any attempt to touch the ball is also obstruction but players do that all the time when they are trying to shepherd the ball out for a goalkick.

I'm not sure Hazard was going for the ball as it wasn't visible; I think he was frustrated with the ball boy's antics..
Didn't Alan Smith get arrested and banned for tossing a plastic bottle back in to the crowd - and it was his mate who threw it in the first place. It was all OTT; there was no malice in it.
