That was his emergency chute.  Main chute had a malfunction and he had to release it.  I doubt he was worried about a soccer game when he was looking for a safe place to set down. There's a first person GoPro video out there somewhere.

I can't imagine finding the balls to disconnect yourself from the thing saving you from falling to the ground in the hopes that your reserve doesn't fark up after your main was so twisted.

He can probably get the card removed on appeal. The laws of the game don't mention parachuting onto the field.

There's a load of great comments in here. Saying he got the caution for diving, that he should've been sent off because he flew in there with both feet off the ground. But the best is that it's a clear yellow for descent.

Yeah, I think this would be worse than if the main just didn't deploy properly. In the latter, instinct would take over, cut the main chute, pull the backup, and you're golden. But having to float, trying to un-twist the rigging, debate if you have any control at all, check the ground to see if you can land, try to un-twist again, then decide to cut bait? That's a looooooooooooong time to think it over.
