Hey, Soccer Players: Don’t Get Sent Off

“Don’t get sent off. Getting sent off is bad. You’d think it’d be obvious. You’d think players would understand just how important staying on the field is. You’d think that in the unlikely event it did happen, it would be the result of some extreme circumstance — like a defender caught suddenly in a no-win situation, or a dubious call by a referee. Sometimes stuff happens that’s out of a player’s control. But, when stuff is reasonably in a player’s control, there should be one golden rule: Don’t. Get. Sent. Off.” Grantland
