(Guardian)   Anybody can get a red card for kicking someone on the opposing team. But it takes a special sort of player to get sent off for kicking a medical staffer while he's being carted off the field on a stretcher   (guardian.co.uk) divider line 10

Anyone hurt enough to require a stretcher or cart should be required to stay off the field for a minimum of 10 minutes.

Great job linking to the press conference instead of the actual video of the kick, moranmitter.

FrancoFile: Somebody should make shin pads with a time-release numbing agent.  Load the reservoir up, and then it numbs your shins continuously for the next 2 hours.


Or a pressure release valve.  You get smoked in the shins it releases the meds like an air bag going off.

FireZs: DoBeDoBeDo: First he should be banned forever for an obvious dive and staying down/acting hurt enough to have a stretcher even on the field. You get a stretcher when you are paralyzed not because you got a boo boo on your knee.

Dog Welder: If you don't want to go on the cart, don't flop around and pretend you've been shot when you brush up against another player.

Most soccer collisions hurt like hell for a minute or two, but then go away. Think banging your shin on furniture. The vast majority of players who go down and are fine 2 minutes later aren't actually faking it.


Yep and when I bang my shin on something I don't call 911.   Going to the ground is one thing, requiring a medical cart then being fine as soon as it crosses the sideline is simply a delaying tactic that needs to be carded.

Go to the ground for a second, maybe limp off and get a cramp out, sure.    Happens in EVERY sport.   Taking time for a cart to come out is for guys who have a next stop at the ambulance waiting to take him to the hospital.

Complete BS.  I've played competitive soccer for years.  They fake it and have ruined the sport.

Yea, I saw that, and have to wonder why a kicking was needed, but what's more important is that Chile won 3-1. We have one foot in Brasil now.

/ CHI CHI CHI, LE LE LE, VIVA CHILE.
// USA won too. I root for both of them.

So red cards for throwing a dog and kicking a medic... strange red card trifecta in play?

Stupid South Americans always getting things backwards.  You're supposed to kick the dog and throttle the driver.
