The ref didn't send him off for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity. That has nothing to do with it. Terry tried to slice him down with his foot; which Jo evaded. Then Terry put his arm around Jo's waist and pulled him down. No attempt to play the ball at all. Just another instance of Terry (And Chelsea in general) thinking they can get away with anything.
Exactly, violent conduct doesn't just mean stamping on someone, but using the arms in a challenge. He dragged Jo down - that's just not allowed. The FA are sending out the message that this is acceptable.
