that's the whole point, who is to say that they screwed up? the letter of the law isnt black and white here and leaving something as important as a goal scoring opportunity up to the subjective opinion of a guy who should not be injecting himself into the match anyways is absolutely foolish. the rule does not state that upon a foul the ref must stop play, the ref must walk off ten yards, the ref must whistle the restart. this whole "ceremonial" restart thing is a load of rubbish. it should be the decision of the ones playing the actual game and they should be prepared at all times for any action. a team that is not defensively prepared to defend a restart at any point on the field and at any point in time should be punished for it. it's just another area of USSF refereeing that is wildly inconsistent and just another area that needs to be addressed, perhaps by this new referee oversight committee or whatever they hell they are.
