This was sent in the Whistle Stop newsletter during the week of 2/18/2018. It shows exactly why we talk about positioning as a referee, about being in a place to see the space between players. (The fact that it says a lot about why those on the touchline should keep their mouths shut is a bit of a bonus, in my opinion). It is also a great example of being sure that there was a foul, especially if it's a decision that could decide the game!
