"Is it fair to say when one moment of madness would define the outcome of a game?"
I'm not sure if that's a fair statement but somehow that's the tendancy of people trying to find a scapegoat when things went horribly wrong.
Ismail Yunos was one being singled out, by netizens, as one such "scapegoat" when he was sent off for a illegal tackle made and saw he received the marching order.

Unforeseen circumstance like this saw the Lions had to reshuffle any game plan laid out by coach Raddy, who I was told being very pissed for such foul committed by Ismail.
As the result, the whole game plan was derailed with players forcing to adjust to the hastily-changed tactics and not to mention the freezing Tehran weather that crippled the boys.
6-0, that was the scoreline and number of defensive lapses saw the second-stringer Iranian walloped us...
