Pulis questions rules
Stoke boss Tony Pulis believes it is 'ridiculous' that David Luiz's challenge on Jon Walters cannot be examined retrospectively.
Luiz's challenge on Walters in the closing stages of the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Stoke on Saturday was reckless and dangerous, but the referee Michael Oliver opted only to show a yellow card at Stamford Bridge. Pulis has called for a change in the rules concerning incidents such as this one and does not understand why video replays can only be used to punish a player if the officials have had no view of the clash whatsoever. Pulis said: "The worst thing is that Luiz's challenge is a very, very poor one but, because the referee's seen it and booked him, he's not going to miss a game. "It's a like a policeman watching a bank robber rob a bank and, because he's seen it, the police are going to let him off. Whereas, if he didn't see him, they're gonna arrest him. It's absolutely crazy - ridiculous."
