Soccer Unsporting Behavior


The soccer Referee can give a Soccer Yellow Card and an Soccer Indirect Free Kick for behavior which in the Referee’s judgment is unsporting or causes an unfair advantage. Examples which are mentioned in the soccer rules, “Questions and Answers”, the soccer official’s guidebook and other sources we’ve been able to find include: any action designed to deceive the soccer Referee; behavior which in the Referee’s judgment is unsporting or causes an unfair advantage; faking an injury; saying things that are designed to confuse or distract an opponent; harassment (such as jumping around, shouting or making gestures to intentionally distract an opponent); jumping in front of a corner kick, soccer free kick or throw-in; worrying the goalkeeper or trying to prevent him from putting the ball into play; hard soccer fouls; holding an opponent or deliberately handling the ball for the purpose of preventing an opponent from gaining possession of the ball; adopting a threatening posture; gaining an unfair advantage by leaning on, climbing on the back of, or holding a teammate or the goal; blatant cases of holding and pulling an opposing player or his uniform.
