  1. Surely if Morelos kicks out at player who is now out for 6 weeks- rather than getting of Scott free The game should have doubled the unishment otherwise game rules now read – kick out and ref cannot take any action. Ref job now very very difficult. Morelos has a temper which he has to control.
