    CharlesWB I think that’s what everyone is debating, (or confused at least) is the sending off. Most comments on social media are angry that she got sent off for the rest of the game. They are blaming the umpire for doing that, like as if to say “the umpire deemed that contest so dangerous, she overreacted by sending her off for the rest of the game.”
    When in actual fact, that umpire was following the next step of the process. Manu’a would have received a warning for it anyways, but the unfortunate thing for her was it was the 3rd time.

    I for one believe the umpires made the right calls. Over the years I have always heard discussions on how there’s no follow through from umpires. Like “umpires send out warnings all the time…..but nothing comes of them” blah blah blah. But when 2 umpires actually ACTION it, they get hated on. All three collisions from Manu’a were of the EXACT same nature – which warranted the discipline.
