    Will the fa act?

    Not sure what papers you read, what channels you watch, or websites you go to, but seems to be quite a bit of coverage of Carra's tackle, and most of it very critical of the player. However I don't think I've read any article on how potentially dangerous the 2 legs, off the ground, studs up challenge by Rafael on Lucas was. I've seen plenty on this type of challenge in the past, and the pundits all agreeing it should be stamped out of the game, and I think I've seen young Rafael perform the same move this season, but there seems to be silence.

    All studs up high challenges should be condemned, and as a LFC supporter I don't condone Carra's tackle. Seems that, as he tried to apologize right after the game nor does he. But tell me if its okay to have selective judgment on these, or are tackles that actually cause harm only worth discussing rather than those that could harm?
