They need to do this to anyone that flops. No warning. Just kick from from the match. One of the reasons i don't watch soccer or basketball.

54

u/Adventurous_Shake161 6 Nov 21 '22

Is that guy even part of the match ?

56

u/Plastic_Pinocchio B Nov 21 '22

That’s the coach probably. The reason he lies down in the field is so there’s an injured person in the field and the game has to stop and he probably tries to run the clock down that way.

Also, the ref pulls a yellow card and then a red one, which means this is not a direct red but a second yellow (= a red) so this coach did some shit before already.

u/dont_forget_again 8 Nov 24 '22

I realize it's not an exact science but doesn't overtime theoretically make up for all the ran clock? Was in Costa Rica for a few years only time I watched football and they would run over whatever time was calculated as downtime.

3

u/Z3t4 7 Nov 28 '22

It not just the time, destroys the inertia of the ongoing attack, gives time to think an reposition to the defense.

1

u/Plastic_Pinocchio B Nov 24 '22

Kind of yes, but not completely I think. The ref just kind of decides how much overtime they need. At least, that’s what it always looks like to me.

u/hey_now24 8 Nov 21 '22

That’s a double yellow. I wonder what happened before

u/SillyMidOff49 9 Nov 21 '22

Managers can be sent off

4

u/spartuh 5 Nov 21 '22

The real question is, unless the ref just fumbled the cards in his pocket and it was supposed to just be red, is what he already did before this to get the first yellow lol

9

u/egerlach 4 Nov 21 '22

It was a double yellow --> red.

If you receive two yellow cards in the same match, the second one is automatically followed by a red. The ref signals like this to show that this infraction was a yellow-card level of infraction, but because of previous conduct, they are getting the red card and being sent off.

3

u/spartuh 5 Nov 21 '22

Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying, and wondering what the previous sideline infraction was.

u/Aarmed 7 Nov 21 '22

The best way to fix diving, is to stop calling penalties made against known divers.

u/Cycho-logical 4 Nov 21 '22

That defender meant that.

I used to love “clearing the ball” into touch (and in the general direction of an annoying prick on the sideline).

What does a red mean for the sideline

28

u/ehrenschwan 6 Nov 21 '22

They have to get behind the fence and are not allowed to be an authority. And they're out for the next game as well. So practically they get downgraded to observer.

Edit: So if it's a coach they can't give instructions. If they do they can get thrown of premise.

80

u/RingBro876 4 Nov 21 '22

Second yellow means he was pulling this shit all game

2

u/ComplexAd8 5 Nov 21 '22

How so? I don't follow soccer but it could just mean it was the second time, right, not "all game"?

4

u/RingBro876 4 Nov 21 '22

A coach needs to do alot of shit and annoy the ref to get just one yellow. You can only imagine what one must've done to get 2

3

u/ComplexAd8 5 Nov 21 '22

It seems that this one is for being on the field, no? In other words, just one thing for this second card?

That said, the ridiculous amount of flopping in soccer is out of control.

They need to do something similar to NCAA men's basketball does for flipping.

No warning, it's an automatic technical foul (opposing team gets a free throw and the ball)

240

u/Ok_Artichoke5604 3 Nov 21 '22

If the refs would do this at all lvls, I'd actually watch it.

u/crash250f 7 Nov 21 '22

I bet you wouldn't. You just want your opinion to be of more value than it is as someone who doesn't really care about soccer.

u/ceciliabee 9 Nov 21 '22

It's a classic chicken or egg. Does soccer suck because the players fake falls and injuries or do they fake falls and injuries because soccer sucks? You don't have to give two shits about soccer to think all those dives are incredibly stupid. Boo hoo a blade of grass touched my knee, give me free kicks!!! Come on.

80

u/seesaww 9 Nov 21 '22

It's not about faking an injury, coach is not allowed to step inside the pitch during game play. And it's a red card if he does so.

18

u/ProudSeparateAccept 3 Nov 21 '22

It wasn't red, though, it was yellow-red.

19

u/triplec787 B Nov 21 '22

Exactly. So this dudes been pulling bullshit all game for him to be get two yellows.

1

u/40ozCurls 6 Nov 21 '22

I don’t mean for this to come off as snarky (and I honestly don’t know the answer) but wouldn’t it just mean they had done it once before (not “all game”)?

1

u/triplec787 B Nov 21 '22

Benches usually get a little bit of leeway. For all we know the guy has been in the refs face all game and then got the first yellow as a “back off” warning, it doesn’t have to be the same incident twice.

It takes a lot of nonsense to get a yellow red on the bench.

4

u/soccerman221 5 Nov 21 '22

What he is saying is yellow red is different then a straight red. He shows the yellow first because it's the second yellow card that coach got this game and then gets the red because it's two yellows. If the coach did something bad enough to deserve an immediate red then he would have just got a red card.

1

u/40ozCurls 6 Nov 21 '22

So to be clear, it means exactly what I said, no?

1

u/soccerman221 5 Nov 21 '22

Oh yes lol I totally misread what you said. But with that said, I am guessing he did it more than once before getting the first yellow.

1

u/ProudSeparateAccept 3 Nov 22 '22

He did something that deserved a yellow. Not necessarily this particular same thing.

u/jeffboms 7 Nov 21 '22

It happens atleast 3x per year in the dutch highest competition.

Its still rare, but a broken re is a broken rule

u/LiquidMotion C Nov 21 '22 edited Nov 21 '22

I ref volleyball and I've red carded fans 3 times. It's never fun. In volleyball the opposing team is given a free point and the serve, so you have to tell that teams captain (who are sometimes 14 yr old girls) that the drunk dad on her side who wont stop walking into the court is why they're getting penalized.

4

u/dirtymoney C Nov 21 '22

Why should players get punished for what spectators do?

Just out the spectator. Kick them out of the event.

Otherwise it seems like a way to manipulate things by having people intentionally act drunk and make violations so one team loses/gains points.

1

u/LiquidMotion C Nov 22 '22 edited Nov 22 '22

Because your team upset the game regardless of whether it was a player or not. They do get kicked out and it's usually glaringly obvious which team he's on because he'll be yelling at his daughter/son. One of those 3 times I didn't award a point or serve because I didn't know who he belonged to and just kicked him out. That one was some douche walking by the game who shook my ref stand. I only carded him to be sure security escorted him out and took his wristband so he couldn't get back in. I sincerely hope he was a player.

4

u/EarthTall 0 Nov 21 '22

As a ref with waterpolo, I've even had to clear the stands several times and even replace the timing officials... Sometimes I feel like the refs are just afraid of what might happen after the game...

u/WastingTimeIGuess 9 Nov 21 '22

Are we watching the same video? Clearing the ball to the sideline is a very standard tactic, and the player kicked the ball in the direction he was running. Doesn’t seem intentional at all; what does seem intentional is making sure he gets on the field to stop play before falling over. Then getting up and being just fine moments later

75

u/BabserellaWT C Nov 21 '22

That has the same energy of the racist Karen in that viral video where she melodramatically “falls” to the floor because she’s “fainted”. (The one in Victoria’s Secret, where she’s chasing the Black woman around the store screaming, “STOP CHASING ME!!!”)

u/Hi_Im_Ken_Adams A Nov 21 '22

Soccer leagues could end all of the lame fake injuries overnight if they would simply stop the clock whenever there was an "injury". That would remove all incentive to fake them.

And if you are so hurt that you are writhing in pain, you should have to sit out the game for at least 5 minutes while being examined by a league-appointed doctor before being cleared to go back into the game. Do that, and this sort of shit stops.

16

u/Infinityand1089 9 Nov 21 '22

And, if it is determined that there is no injury, it should be an immediate yellow (or possibly red) card. This bullshit is ruining soccer and it seems like nothing is being done to stop it.

14

u/LiquidMotion C Nov 21 '22

They should just continue play and have a cart come in to take them off, and everyone just plays around it. Injured player can't be replaced till the next stoppage.

32

u/timbococ 6 Nov 21 '22

They add extra time to compensate for stoppages... Usually faking injury is to slow down the game to breathe, drink water, reset; in a game that has no time outs. Also to draw a foul call from light (or no) contact.

5

u/soupersauce_6 4 Nov 21 '22

This is the only answer that matters. Its a fast-paced game that has one break in between.

-10

u/[deleted] Nov 21 '22

In all major European leagues the games only last for 60 minutes or less, the rest of the time is wasted on fake injuries, substitutions, players and coaches arguing with the referee... If FIFA changed the rules to stoptime and made each half 30 minutes long, the games would last effectively the same as nowadays but the players and coaches wouldn't have as much of an incentive to act like this.

6

u/Hi_Im_Ken_Adams A Nov 21 '22

Do you think adding timeouts similar to American Football would work?

2

u/timbococ 6 Nov 21 '22

I think to some extent it will always exist. I think what COULD work is a focus on punishment for diving when there is no contact made. If there's some small foul and it's embellished, I'm not sure how that can be reigned in. If it's just complete fakery when no contact happens, (there should be punishment on the field but) I'd like to see an after-the-fact, even after-game review process, which could result in fines & suspensions.

112

u/GreyMediaGuy A Nov 21 '22

This is why I have no interest in ever watching soccer. I can't stand the second-hand embarrassment from this absolutely asinine childish behavior. It happens all the time. How can anyone tolerate watching a grown man flop on the ground and roll around like a 4-year-old during a temper tantrum? Screw all that.

Why are soccer players so fragile? And apparently the coaches and sideline staff?

Serious question as I don't watch soccer. Why is there so much exaggerated flopping?

25

u/Looking4Maria A Nov 21 '22

You can win a game by getting a decision in your favor so if u choose to fall because of illegal contact the referee is more likely to punish it.

u/dcdwho 1 Nov 21 '22

Sounds like better/more refs are needed. Hockey is able to accomplish this without players needing to put on an Oscar performance

u/itwasquiteawhileago B Nov 21 '22

And a much faster pace. It always blows my mind how they can catch anything as these guys fly by at insane speeds up and down the ice. And how quickly they whistle/delay it. My brain barely comprehends it on slo-mo multiple times back to back and at different angles.

u/reditakaunt89 7 Nov 21 '22

There are many clips like this one:

https://youtu.be/naBn5u2A520

When you actually stop and think what some players go through, you don't blame them for diving from time to time. It's awful when they do it to win a penalty, but exaggerating how painful the tackle is can save them from real injuries.

12

u/vendetta2115 B Nov 21 '22

You have it backwards. If soccer players wouldn’t dive all the time, then these actual bad fouls would be called.

There’s no excuse for diving.

-7

u/reditakaunt89 7 Nov 21 '22

You should read about the history of the sport. There were no cards back in a day. So you could basically beat up your opponent and there would be no big consequences. Pele for example had a huge problem with it and he had to punch other guys to assert dominance. Cards were introduced to stop bad fouls, but they obviously aren't 100%. Hence the exaggeration by players.

And you should note that I was talking about exaggeration, not diving. I am absolutely against diving.

u/macswaj 8 Nov 21 '22

u/IamNotMike25 7 Nov 21 '22

This video is not normal.

Players exaggerate mostly to get the opponents a yellow/red card. They only get carded for diving when it's to obvious so it's almost risk-free.

Some do it to protect themselves, good players who dribble often get their legs chopped as it's sometimes the last thing a bad defender can do.

26

u/OgreLord_Shrek A Nov 21 '22

Professional soccer is unwatchable to me because of all the fake crying and diving. I cant remember the last time I gave a match 3 minutes on TV without seeing someone flailing around begging for a penalty after some light contact. Women's soccer is great though, they seem to have some self respect.

u/tamati_nz 8 Nov 21 '22

Oh you went down so hard that you need a penalty awarded? Compulsory 10min medical assessment off field to make sure you're OK.

This is so they can go over to the stands to celebrate with fans, then the rest of the tram run over

It should be the team first. Not one of the supporters is on the field. Not one of the supporters aided the set up.

u/tnoble2945 8 Nov 20 '22

He intentionally walks, then falls, onto the pitch. He is trying to stop the game and waste time. Presumably his team is winning. And he is already on a yellow, perhaps for a similar infringement

What's the rule when somebody on the sideline gets the red? Does the team pick one of their players to come off? Or do they still have 11 on the field?

29

u/m0nstr5oul 7 Nov 20 '22

I was a referee and the rule is that the person who got the red card no matter who has to leave the sports area. And on top of that the football club gets a fine from the sport court. (At least it is like that in germany)

u/masd82 4 Nov 20 '22

Except the physio/medical. They can get a red card, leave the field, but need to stay in a location visible to the referee Incase there is an injury.

u/SdDprsdSnglDad18 7 Nov 20 '22

As someone quite new to the sport, why would a medic get a penalty?

1

u/masd82 4 Nov 21 '22

A medic can get an yellow card if he get inside the field before the referee permission, off course in severe situations the referee is not going to give yellow cards, I remember when the Danish captain had an heart attack on the field the medical teams didn't wait for the ref permission both of them immediately got inside the field. Usually everybody that is seating on the bench get yellow cards for contesting the referee decisions, that's the most common cause. Also other example can be the ball is kicked out the field and one member is refusing to give it back.

u/TheMadPyro A Nov 21 '22

The medical/physio team are part of the club rather than being provided by the host. They could, theoretically, help their team by going out and time wasting if their team was ahead.

Nope. Looks like he got a 2nd yellow, then red. Managers/coaches very rarely get yellows or reds? So he must have done something earlier to get a yellow and the ref had enough. (For those illogical dumb dumbs who need everything spelled out). 😆

I feel like you've never taken a hit to the balls. They're so damn varied depending on angle, what hit you, etc. Like taking it from the front isn't as bad because it hits you in the dick and you het that shockwave. That's different from a hit that come from somewhat below (like a kick) and hits all balls.

Like ... are you this guy? You're the only one sort of defending this

u/Black6x 9 Nov 20 '22

I'm just pointing out that the idea of "justice" for "faking an injury" appears false. You're the only one starting using ad hominem arguments.

u/Crylikeasupercar 7 Nov 20 '22

Whatever you gotta tell yourself. If you believe this injury is real, then you're gonna have a bad time when you find out about Santa.

Doesn't matter tbh. Real or not he didn't need to be on the grass.

One does not argue with the ref; their word is final. The red card came from arguing with the ref after getting yellow carded.

u/jedimaster-bator 7 Nov 20 '22

Idk, looked like a 2nd yellow. Ref went straight for the red after the yellow. Which means he probably pulled a simular Stunt earlier in the game? (Also the other players reactions)

u/Drawde_O64 6 Nov 20 '22

I don’t think that’s true. I think it was a second Yellow card, which becomes a red. Arguing isn’t a straight red.

u/byamannowdead 8 Nov 20 '22

“using offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures” is a straight red, so it could have been that

u/daraghlol 8 Nov 20 '22

Then he wouldn’t have brandished the yellow at all

u/byamannowdead 8 Nov 20 '22 edited Nov 20 '22

Yellow for the simulation/entering field/delay of game, then red for the language afterwards

If the ball is gonna hurt your leg like that, everybody's ankles must be broken when playing soccer.

Surprised no one's bones break when their foot comes into the slightest contact with a ball

Not for faking an injury but for getting on the field and interrupting a play as a non field player.

u/Bland-fantasie 7 Nov 20 '22

This makes sense to me because faking injuries seems absolutely allowed in soccer.

u/heparins 2 Nov 20 '22

“Deceiving the referee” is against the laws of the game but is a yellow card offense.

u/Bland-fantasie 7 Nov 21 '22

I know. I was using hyperbole. I mean, I will take your word for it. I don’t care for soccer or know anything about it, but the most revolting thing is diving.

It’s such a low-character thing. It’s up there with an NFL guy beating up his male spouse.

u/ialsohaveinternet 8 Nov 20 '22

I thought the whole gameplay was injuries and there just happened to be a ball somewhere?

u/Bland-fantasie 7 Nov 20 '22

Also 60 minutes of play leading to a 0-0 tie.

u/metasophie A Nov 20 '22

"60 minutes of ball play leading to a 0-0 tie" - could be the name of a sex tape!

-2

u/jedimaster-bator 7 Nov 20 '22

So a tight game until the last 30minutes? Some games end 0-0 after the full 90 minutes? At least its not a sport where its so easy to score it happens every 20-30 seconds?

u/Fejsze A Nov 20 '22

Do you not enjoy basketball?

u/Draedron 9 Nov 20 '22

Only thing more boring than basketball is baseball

u/Fejsze A Nov 20 '22

Anyone who doesn't appreciate the complexities of baseball doesn't earn a voice in this. Soz :-(

u/chaandra 9 Nov 20 '22

You can say that of any sport

u/jedimaster-bator 7 Nov 20 '22

Its a bit simplistic? Anyone can get good with a little practice. If you're tall and practice, congratulations you're a superstar.

8

u/Fejsze A Nov 20 '22

That's fair, but like, everything seems that way until you understand it enough to recognize the strategy.

I mean, there's no way anyone can claim that soccer isn't the most boring sport on earth until you learn wtf is actually going on. Anyone can get good with a litte practice. Just be fast, kick and practice kicking a ball, congratulations you're an international superstar.

Unless you've seen golf.

I think there's a fair amount of kids in the world who want to be pro footballers and never get close and fewer still become internationals......and a very few who are fast and practice become international superstars. So your comment is a swing and a miss? Would you like another go? 🤔

u/Fejsze A Nov 21 '22

... are you really that dumb?

I literally copy/pasted your comment dude. The fact that you didn't recognize it just solidifies how absurd your comment was. Like, that was the *entire* point and you just fuckin whiffed it! That's embarrassing.

In the NHL, there have been 41 games tied 0-0 after overtime since the introduction of the shootout in 2005 (meaning they would have been recorded as a 0-0 tie in the past), which is 0.25% of games. And there have been 189 0-0 ties in history (dating back to 1924)

u/Fejsze A Nov 20 '22

And soccer sits around 7% 0-0 ties. That's, let's do the math, carry the 3... That means you have a 28x greater chance of seeing a 0 score soccer game vs hockey.

I'll stick with hockey?

u/chaandra 9 Nov 20 '22

Then don’t watch it

I thought it was a joke as he is clearly not a player.

edit: I like my interpretation better as it is more funny and wholesome

Red card applies to the playing field and its surrounding area. This means anyone who gets sent off can't even stay in the bench and would either have to go to the locker room or the bleachers.
