And it seems to lie heavily on his conscience.
Sean St Ledger: "Obviously I don't want players to get banned, I'm not a fan of that.
"But (the decision) promotes 'if you can get away with it, do it'.
"I've seen (the incident) again and I still think he intentionally, the second time, handballed it. I still feel a bit hurt from it.
"They said they've got no legal foundation but they still had the power to change the rules and introduce the seedings.
"I think if they've got that kind of power to change that rule I don't understand why they haven't got the power to make a ruling here.
"It's confusing but at the same time not surprising.
"It won't surprise me if France go on and win the World Cup."
Oh God ... and I'm sure St Ledger will have a LOT to say if they did.
