Too quick on the whistle

[REF WATCH] Referees can, of course, choose not to call a foul and play the advantage. If there's any chance that there is an advantage for the team that suffered the foul, the referee is supposed to wait a few seconds before blowing the whistle -- which didn't happened in a Dutch Eredivisie game last weekend.

Referee Michel Winter denied VVV's Arme Leemans a chance to celebrate his 35-yard goal against Graafschap.

VVV still managed a 1-0 win over Graafschap -- but it would have been a more convincing victory had Winter waited to see what kind of shot Leemans would unleash just after his teammate was scythed down from behind in midfield.
