An attacker rounds the keeper and is about to play the ball into the
empty net when a defender violently slides through the back of him with
a vicious foul. But the defenders momentum also knocks the ball into
his own net. What do you award?
This is a violent, red card challenge – but that doesn't stop you using
common sense and applying the advantage in these circumstances. So award
the goal and then show the defender the red card for his challenge.
A long clearance is punted up field. A striker, in an offside
position, watches bemused as it flies over his head. But then he decides
to jog after the ball - which prompts the opposition goalkeeper to
advance. But he advances too far: the ball takes a wicked bounce, flies
over him and drops into the net. What is your decision?
a goal. To be declared offside the striker must be "active" – and here
he is not. Jogging forward is not a clear distraction to the goalkeeper,
whose job it is to stop the ball going into his net. He has simply
advanced too far and been caught out by the bounce.
A mouthy player who has already been cautioned is substituted. He
storms off the field of play, and as he does so, turns and aims a
torrent of foul verbal abuse at you. Neither the subbed player or his
replacement is on the field of play. What do you do?
Show the abusive player a straight red card. The substitution has not
taken place, so the sub is not allowed on to the field of play.
Re-start the game in the appropriate way with the team involved reduced
to 10 players – unless they want to continue the substitution by taking
another player off.
