The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

This needs to happen

Hey, I’ve only been bitching about this for years and years and years!

I have always held to the idea that should an attacking player be felled by the last defender in the penalty area, a red card AND a penalty was far too harsh of a sanction. To me, a penalty kick reasonably approximates the chances of scoring on a breakaway or with the defender being on the attacker’s shoulder. For the most part, the shooter is going to score…but then you get the times where they boof it wide, or shovel it into the legs of the onrushing keeper, or the keeper makes an excellent save.

This is a great start, but once they do this, they need to look at making incidents like this outside the box a penalty as well. Losing a man for the entire match is just too much of an overreaction, especially if it comes early in the game.

As far as I’m concerned, red cards should be the purview of people dumb enough to get two yellows, or to get off the field the violent fucktards who are trying to injure people out there.
