DTotD: Footballer gets knocked over in the box, kicked repeatedly by three opponents

Brooks Peck
Dirty Tackle

This might be the easiest penalty call of all time. A player in green gathers a rebound off the post with his back to the goal. A player in red then clumsily falls into him from behind, sending them both to ground. With the player in green sitting over the ball, red gets up and starts kicking him. Two of his teammates then join in and suddenly they're kicking the guy like he robbed someone's grandmother.

The penalty was awarded, but it appears no one was booked for the attack. Probably because the referee didn't want them to gang up on him next.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
