By all means complain to the ref and/or assistants but if it wasn't a hard contact don't give it the theatrics. I get fed up with seeing players go down and roll around screaming, then once a kick and card is given they are up and running around sometimes even without the trainer coming on.

Times have changed but when I was younger playing you took these challenges on the chin (literally sometimes!) and let the ref decide the outcome. Nowadays it seems players are out to get others carded or sent off far too easily.
Good sensible post - if it was a 'slight' foul on the part of the Ayr player Szczpaniak lost all credibility - someone needs to sit him down infront of a video of the good old days where true hardmen played the game - Tommy Smith, Chopper 'Harris , Norman Hunter, Billy Bremner - now get up off the floor and stop impersonating an actor trying to get an opponent carded and while your at it try celebrating the win at the end of the penalty shoot out infront of your own fans not those from Ayr - by the way we are the ones wearing red !
