Are the referee's strict enough?

I see 2-3 fouls per game while there is a lot of physicality and rough tackles in every game.
Shouldn't referee's be more strict?

    Different mechanics in this than 18. Refs need to be strict because some these rugby tackles are a joke

    Referees are a joke. They don`t see clear fouls, but you get yellow card for minor things

    They really need to sort it out. Obstruction is apparently allowed in FIFA 19 now, but as said above the simplest thing and its a yellow card.

    Also sick of yellow cards coming back to you after an advantage - how often do we see that in regular games? Like I realise its part of the rules, but it happens way to often compared to real life.

    That's because players kept spamming the tackle button instead of timing a tackle. To circumvent this, players just used jockey and ran directly into the attackers.

    As far as disliking it, it sure seems majority dislike the current overpowered AI defending, but I doubt they will change it.

    Yes, I know, manual attacking comeback incoming. So let me first say I endorse full manual controls.

    It was more to do with refs deciding games. I expect ea to patch defense back to 18 though as they tend to listen to the majority.

    Yes. I imagine the same. It would be very interesting if they patch it to a gameplay defending more like 18 release. Obviously would never happen, but it sure would be interesting

    This is what does my head in. No calls for running into a player to take the ball away.

    Refs need to be stricter. Especially in Squad Battles. You literally get owned in SB
