McGlynn himself has not tweeted about the incident, though earlier today he did roll a perfect game in iPad bowling.

Glad to see the important facets of the story were covered.

Ejection is redundant, Red card = ejection.

I think what subby was trying to say is that not only was he given a red card and ejected, he was also not allowed to return to the game. He was fourthly kicked out.

he should get arrested for just playing soccer.

What is it about soccer, at least in the US, that seems to attract such massive douchebags (at least at the college level)? Seriously, it seems to attract some extremely unstable guys. Granted a lot of this is my own anecdotal experiences, but still...outside of wrestling it seems to have the highest dbag factor.

The video from Snort's link has the critical 2-3 seconds cut from the play. Lame.

That's what ejection means. You're not allowed to return to the game.

Back when I used to be a referee in local amateur leagues; shennannigans like this would result in the entire team being kicked out of the league and the player banned for life.

But the NCAA can't set that precedent.

Lacrosse wins the award at the college level.

The sports fan that didn't grow up with or play the game at any point might not understand: The game is ridiculously difficult to play - akin to golf, but with teammates. I think guys get frustrated easily playing the game to begin with. Then, if they're good, they feel like they've really mastered something difficult and get cocky. Then, a frustrating call here or there (that makes an already maddeningly difficult game even more maddening), a bad match or two and suddenly the really cocky guys (or girls) act out. I've met some decidedly nice guys and gals in my work with soccer players. I've also met some of the biggest, most arrogant jerks as well.

I think another good comparison is hockey. Hockey moves so fast and is also very difficult to master. But in hockey, the aggression gets taken out in the form of checks and, at the top levels, fights (fighting has largely been eliminated from lower levels). A check into the boards doesn't put you in that much danger when you're already padded and prepared. However, soccer's answer to the check is the sliding tackle which, done incorrectly (studs up and from the side or behind), can leave a guy unable to walk for a year. So guys do get defensive and angry when they're put in danger.

Long story short: No interest in playing the game at anything higher than a recreational level for me.

Back in the 80's; when there was no professional league for them afterwards and they could look forward to teaching high school or selling real estate; college soccer players were D-Bags.

/Get off my pitch, you kids

But TFA says that the miscreant in this case is a Mick.

And a headline update: UC Santa Barbara soccer player pulls off the rare yellow card, red card, ejection, arrest...coach suspension, team ban from post-season play this year. TADA!

The player's been kicked off the team (and is in his Senior year, so won't be coming back to it), the coach is suspended for a game, and the team's withdrawing from any postseason play (though they probably weren't going to qualify).
