Clear and obvious has long gone we are looking at tiny infringements essentially any contact in the box (if you go down) is a penalty which is not just a VAR issue it is a clear change of the rules, the same is true for level in offside calls and so on, it is changing the game and not for the better.
The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can't ignore it, top it; if you can't top it, laugh at it; if you can't laugh at it, it's probably deserved.
