  1. As the video is only part of the whole context of the game, it is possible that the referee has opted for rigor and called an unsportsmanlike foul for disciplinary control. However, as the offensive player had the resources to deal with the contact, there was no loss of balance, pace and speed and he still had broad possibilities of scoring, on the other hand, despite of the risks always involved in this kind of choice, it would also be possible to apply the principle of advantage and disadvantage, with a probably very gorgeous and interesting play.
