SC's 14th Sexiest Male 2008

It’s why I’ve thought for a long while now that a yellow card should be accompanied by a 5 minute (or longer) sin bin style disadvantage.That's just the way it works. A player can pick up a series of cards but won't necessarily play against any of the teams he picked up the cards against during his ban. Seems more unfair when those teams could be direct rivals.
Would love to see that in football personally. All those “took one for the team” yellow cards when a player drags down someone going past him as he knows he can’t stop him would be properly punished, rather than just giving away a free kick in the middle of the pitch and allowing the defenders to regroup.
