Must have been a different incident I saw then . The one I saw Balta dived side on into his legs. Would expect that to be paid most times. Whether it hurts the player is of little consequence. Anyway moving on, many much, much worse decisions or non-decisions made.He did t take his legs, nor were the Hawthorns players legs in danger of being hurt.
Did Balta take him out? Yes
Did he slide directly into his lower legs? No
