Pundits the same. Many of them still looking at tackles in the same way as when they were playing back in in the 80's/90's.I always find it strange how many football fans who play the sport don't seem to believe there is a technique to tackling.
"He got the ball" seems to be enough for many. Tackles being studs up, reckless, dangerous etc just don't seem to matter to many.
Intent is irrelevant, along with playing the ball before man. Fact is if it's dangerous it's going to be a straight red and fans , pundits, players and managers are going to have to get used to and accept that because the laws on the game that govern this are not going to change.
