The Laws of Football state: "A player is guilty of violent conduct if he uses excessive force or brutality against an opponent when not challenging for the ball. He is also guilty of violent conduct if he uses excessive force or brutality against a team-mate, spectator, match official or any other person."http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2011/de...-goalkeeper-fan
Dutch football is very interesting this year off and on the pitch.
a ridiculous red card. esteban gets jumped from behind by some drunk fuckwit (who already had a full stadium ban) with a kick and then gets carded? wtf would any of us do? i know i'd want to kick his teeth in. despite the rules, this is a case of common sense. and the knvb agrees as the card has been withdrawn.
good on ya esteban, shame you couldnt get to the idiots melon.
