A two footed tackle is supposed to be straight red


When I first saw it, it looked like his bottom leg was sliding on the ground. I didn't realize his whole body was air born.

Ok so we're in agreement now? You mentioned the scissor, IMO its kind of moot because at that point he's already deserving of a red for leaving the ground.

If he cleared the ground, then absolutely. A two-footed launch is always a red. I rewatched the gif and saw that his right leg was off of the ground. I'm definitely changing my opinion if that's the case.

That's why I mentioned the scissor. When I first saw it, it looked like he was sliding with his leading foot, not airborn.

So a rational fan with no hatred for Man U agrees it was a red and absolutely crazy that it didn't get a yellow? Good. Now we got the level headed and the crazies agreeing.

What does which club you support have to do with what a red card is/isn't? You Man U fans are such twats, everything anybody says about man u y'all turn into some sort of victimization and end the argument feeling sorry for yourselves. If that match was wigan v stoke or Mexico v. Giuseppe Rossi and neven subotic I'd still think it was a red. The fact that it was united (Scholes) has nothing to do with it.

Holy crap, it was a joke.

This victimization card really needs to stop. It was a joke. Give me a freaking break.

ETA: FWIW, I thought the other leg was sliding on the ground, too.

Sorry That was meant for the other Bob who keeps posting this kind of bs every time y'all benefit from a poor call:

quote:

we were gifted the game, with the talent that manchester united has, there is no way we should have beaten qpr or anyone for that matter. we needed the refs help (via negligence) to pull out the win or hell, any win we've gotten in the past 20 years. when SAF is gone, we'll likely be relegated within 3 years.


Eta: and yes I agree it needs to stop.

PTBob goes on the offensive when people hate on United...that's just who he is. This time, he used the weapon of extreme sarcasm.

Also, is the two-footed challenge always a straight red? Is that defined in the Laws of the Game, or is it just an unwritten rule among referees? Are red card offenses fully dependent on the referee?

Anyone know? I couldn't find it in the Laws PDF on my computer, but it was through Adobe Reader's unreliable search function.

I don't believe it's in FIFAs rules, but in the EPL, the referees are instructed to show straight red for 2 footed challenges. I'm not sure how it is handled in other european leagues.

Aha...did not know that. Thought it was just one of those global unwritten rules.

Yeah. Look at Hangeland's tackle from last week. Should only have been a yellow in my opinion. He didn't go in hard, was probably trying to protect himself, and the other player got right up.

Yes, great example. I agree that it seemed harsh to show Hangeland straight red. At the end of the day, the rule makes the game safer, so I can accept it.

Definitely should've been a yellow.

Mainly because he is on my fantasy team.

Dependent on the ref/league. The written rules of the game are unsurprisingly broad on purpose in order to lend subjectivity to the decision.

Hell, Torres was sent off against Swansea after scoring two early goals for this. Drogba was also sent off for it last year and he won the ball and didn't touch the player. I've seen numerous guys sent off whether they win the ball or not.
