It’s back!

The original and best (in my opinion) Rovers fan site has returned after being shut for donkies years.

They don’t have any plans for a forum, so we’re safe on that front.

Great news to see them back though!

Cheers for that mini_andy. Paid it a visit and the photograph on the Chester match report appears to confirm what I thought I saw at the time (sometimes I think the mind plays tricks and makes you see what it wants you to see), that is clear contact from the Chester keeper on Norwoods leg and a stonewall penalty. Surprised how little fuss has been made of a shocking decision by the ref, not only to miss the contact, but then book Norwood for diving. I guess we've become immune to the travesties of the officialdom in the backwoods of this hillbilly haven.

Can a booking be appealed in the same way a sending off can so the points are cancelled?

Am pretty certain that a yellow card cannot be appealed .

Perhaps the refs are being cruel to be kind, to save us the torture of them being missed!
