Just doesn't shut up

Its not as if the distance between ball contact and mouts contact is 10 feet and 3 seconds!! It's all in a split second!Actually, it should have been a red even if it narrowly missed him. (Which it might have done from some angles).
If he was in control, why did his studs stay up there? You say he’s in control, so he chooses, in a controlled manner, to leave his studs ankle high while flying through the air followed by across the turf (yes he does briefly leave the ground with both feet).
That should be a red whether he connects or not.
No it probably wouldn’t have been examined closely enough for the review to have happened if there hadn’t have been contact, but the reckless challenge happened regardless.
Plenty of players have been sent off for a no-contact lunge.
