    Ah – yes. A favourite of mine.
    Like the defender raising his arms and looking shocked and innocent as the centre-forward crashes to the ground. A sure sign that he was pushed. Defenders never raise their arms and looked shocked and innocent unless they’ve just pushed a centre forward over.

    Other notable examples of this are:
    “I don’t mean to be rude, but…” and (over here esp)
    “I’m not a racist, but…”
