I wonder if the girl knew him and his actual career, or if she somehow ran up and figured he could get help the quickest. Either way, bravo to you good Sir!

A tag that's used with it's literal intention? Now THAT is Hero worthy!

The fan was probably faking it.

Oh come on. The guy was totally faking it.

I don't know why they make such a big deal about the guy having just been sent off. Did they expect a trained nurse to leave a dying man to his fate because he was so pissed off about the red card?

Wait, this doesn't make sense. Fans go to semi-pro soccer games? The last Richmond Kickers game I went to was attended solely by crickets and tumbleweeds. The Miami Marlins have better attendance.

i never tire of hearing people complain about "lack of sports" in this town.  No one supports what we have.  Hell, the last hockey game I went to was a Verizon buy one get one free night and at 2nd intermission, the "guess the attendance" announcement came on with 812 (or some low figure below 800).  Granted, Richmond isn't a big hockey town but before Hampton was moved up, attendance was great.

Loved listening to this guy's interview on TalkSport this morning. Truly a class act. Gives credit to the EMTs on hand, and, in pure footballing fashion, still says he shouldn't have been sent off.

I don't understand. Is that the title of something? Or is your shift key just very overworked?

To make matters worse, the Kickers are fully professional.  Minor league, but a professional team.  There are minor league teams (Orlando City, San Antonio, the old Portland Timbers and Montreal Impact) and one or two amateur treams that draw good crowds (Detroit City being one) but minor league soccer is really hit or miss in this country.

I imagine he might not have even realized a man was dying in the stands if he was still playing. I don't know if they stopped the match either, and if they didn't he wouldn't have been able to just leave the match. So had he not been sent off, he would not have been available to help at all.

Wait, how the fark does the keeper get a red card!? Maybe I just played in a rougher leagues through highschool and college, but when I played keeper it was dam near a brawl any time I touched the ball. My team and I did wind up catching up with one enterprising lad after a match and beat the ever living shiat out of him. That was the last time he ever wore metal spikes and split a keepers head open with them, sometimes a red card is just not enough.

Yup. The average attendance in that league is around 300. The game in question had 617 people there
