I don't think the conditions mean the tackles should stop. But if you lose control of yourself, as perhaps Mee did, and make it a scissors tackle, it should be the same card as if it was dry. That was an illegal tackle, full stop, as soon as the second leg trapped Gomez. Next time we play Burnley, someone should there is no further generation of Mees.Tough tackles should happen, but not on a night like that. It was raining, the ball was wet, the players were sliding all over the pitch.
It you go in heavy youve got no control at stopping yourself. Its just an accident waiting to happen.
