The shirt pulling at Bramall Lane 10:26 - Oct 6 with 2489 viewskernowhoop

The film showed that, despite the fact that the Sheffield United fans at the Kop end were screaming for a penalty, both players were pulling shirts. Nevertheless, in that atmosphere, Andre Dozell was lucky to get away with it. Well done the ref.
I have wondered many times why professional footballers wear shirts that can be gripped and tugged. Don't Rugby Union players wear skin-tight shirts that are difficult to grip, or have I dreamt that up? Shouldn't footballers do likewise?

You'd have to give a penalty after every corner if you're going to punish shirt-pulling in the area.

Grealish wears a skintight kit with tiny, tiny shin guards and he's never fouled.

THe shirts of rugby are designed differently, as front row players have to have something to hook onto in the scrum

but tight fitting replica shirts on some of our supporters would not be attractive

Why stop now, just when I'm hating it

Didn’t spurs try that a few years ago with a tight fitting shirt?It would make more sense if there was nothing to grab hold of,and obviously the players would look more comfortable wearing it than some of us more rotund fans.
At the FC Halle game in July I swapped shirts with one of their supporters at the end of the match,but I should’ve chosen a better fitting person to swap shirts with rather than the bloke who chose me.It was nice of our fans to start singing “ get your tits out for the lads” as I was trying to put on this XL halle shirt where a 3xl qpr one used to be.

Shirts should be designed with perforated tear off sections.

On the leniency towards holding, this was introduced into the glossary of the laws a couple of years ago - make of it what you will, but IMHO it is a possible reason why some, what may seem blatant, offences are let go

"Holding offence
A holding offence occurs only when a player’s contact with an opponent’s body
or equipment impedes the opponent’s movement"

Cameroon’s arse-crack hugging kit of 2004. Not a leotard - an indomitable unitard. Was way ahead of it’s time.

In Gaelic Games different teams wear different tyoes of jersies. If you're a team that scores goals you'll wear tight-fitting shirts so you can't be pulled back, if you're not good at goals you'll wear baggy shirts so you do get fouled and you score from frees/penalties instead.

I'd be amazed if this hadn't occured to English football teams as well.

Preston's new kit will be modelled on The Stone Roses circa 1989.

One of the Action Images photos Clive put up on website in his 'Pics Gallery' clearly shows it was a bit more than 'six of one, half a dozen of the other'. I think we were very lucky not to concede a penalty there. Poor decision making from Dozell.

@Noelmc 'Poor decision making from Dozell'

Midfielders sometimes forget that they can't get away with things in the box that they can get away with in midfield. Although he got away with it.

It’s obvious that it wasn’t the shirt pulling that impeded Berge it was his inability to tie his boot lace properly. Schoolboy error.
