Thinking about it , I dont think it is "dangerous play" as a striker is entitled to go for a bicycle kick late in the game- if it was a wolves striker we would all be saying he was entitled to go for it. The problem is in the rules- a penalty should not be given for any old foul/handball but clear goal scoring opportunities denied to the attacking team by a foul. The laws of a foul inside the pen area should be different as a penalty is such a serious punishment for any team and common sense of a player protecting himself is not " denying a team a clear goal scoring opportunity".
Most of the pens are given by handballs that are contentious rather than other fouls and it's the handball rule that needs to change asap

I respect your opinion Angry but we'll have to disagree on this one. Doherty's jumping and still has a bootfull of studs around his swede. The attacker's foot is too high. Dangerous play for me.
