I don't know what to make of the refereeing of this game today. When Leicester played at our place Vardy "won" a penalty by initiating contact with a defender but today he got sent off for the same thing. It seemed the ref couldn't wait to show the card. Later a penalty was awarded against the foxes for an offence the like of which had happened previously at every corner in the game. A much worse foul on Huth was ignored in the Hammers penalty area later. I don't know if the ref was told something through his earpiece or if he just decided to even things up but he gave Leicester a penalty right at the death for the most innocuous "foul" I've seen for a long time. I'm pleased Leicester got a point as I couldn't bear for N17 to be champions but it was all a bit curious today IMO.

Unfortunately refereeing decisions are increasingly inconsistent. Also penalties are not given for fouls which would clearly be given further up the field.

Ref's have been a joke all season decisions are so inconsistent.

Vardy deserved the yellow for me though, I still think it was a dive against us and he's done it all season so about time a ref woke up to him.
