I know many of you have pondered the same thing. I mean what gives. A guy gets booked, deservedly so, then proceeds to commit fouls which would normally get him booked but because he's carrying a Yellow, the ref continues to issue warnings instead of sending him to the showers. Meanwhile, players whom are fouled are getting lit up and in some cases seriously injured. What gives? In my case, I'm referring to Bo's foul on DaMarcus near the end of last night's US Open Cup Semi-Final which finally got him sent off, however had he been booked on one of the two fouls he committed earlier this would have never occured. This isn't a team specific thing and on occasion the refs have been good about issuing that second yellow. However, many seem to play the I can't send him off for that type of foul, so players on the oppostion are lit up 'til the person is sent off. Lemme see, I'll allow a hack to stay on and finish the job but not protect the players on the field? Makes perfect sense to me. Anyone else? And no this isn't Fire Specific. I've seen this happen to almost every team I've seen play in the MLS as well as other leagues throughout the World and even in World Cup play. Germany in the 80's come to mind.
