I think the Pen wasn't the worst decision, what I don't like is the encroachment call and retaking of the missed Pen. Only seen this twice (other against us) and if they checked every Pen taken this year I would bet my last dollar there would be encroachment that was ignored on missed Pens. Its your typical hold it to the letter of the law situation that 99.9% of the time is ignored. That makes the bias evident to see and there is plenty of talk about it on socials. Not that the APL cares what the fan base of the A League think.
I think it’s because in this case the encroachment directly affects the subsequent play in Callum clearing the ball. Most pf the time it’s immaterial. And this instance I’d be angry if it wasn’t called were it us.
