@dgb09 Seconded. I've played defense as a player pretty much my whole life, and seat neighbors to me at CMP will know that I enjoy watching a well-timed tackle probably more than most people, but I still think that soccer is primarily not a game of physicality. The one trait that soccer has that stands out to me and makes it the best ball sport in the world to me is fluidity. Imo people that enjoy Beckermanesque body blows (nothing against it, just not my thing) should watch ice hockey, rugby, american or australian football. Hence I like it that players that persistently foul face a harsh penalty. And I like that players that cynically foul to prevent counter attacks face a harsh penalty. As for unjustified yellow cards, I see no reason why those could not be rescinded after game or even during the game - just let both captains know that VAR has identified a wrongly given yellow card, the game would not even have to be stopped for that.
