- Sol Bamba fired at the last minute when Cardiff defeated Brighton for the decisive victory
- He pulled off his shirt to celebrate, but avoided a booking, because the referee missed it
- This comes after Demarai Gray was warned last week about the same offense

Sol Bamba took off his shirt after scoring Cardiff's last-minute winner, but was not booked and was not lying when asked by referee Martin Atkinson if he had been removed.
A week after Leicester player Demarai Gray was warned in the same stadium after trying to pay tribute to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha after the chairman's tragic pass.
The request to show Gray a yellow card triggered a significant debate in the game, and many felt that the Premier League rule for removing shirts should have been relaxed.

Atkinson's mistakes on Saturday highlighted the inconsistency. Bamba scored in the 90th minute to 2: 1 against Cardiff and immediately took off his shirt when he sprinted to the corner.
He later admitted, "The referee asked me if I took off my T-shirt and I said no."
This is also the result of a debate about honesty in football after the mental punishment that Raheem Sterling won in Manchester City in the midweek Champions League.
After a spot kick, Sterling did not miss the officials.
The PGMOL will not be happy that Atkinson missed something obvious on Saturday, even though the Referees Committee made a mistake.
