    Question: What Is A Yellow Card?

    In the NFL if a player gets a (yellow) flag, his team is penalized 5, 10, 15 yards, etc. A flag could result in a first down, loss of a first down, better field goal range for a kicker, or out of range for a field goal kicker, etc. You get the picture.

    In soccer what does a player or his/her team get penalized when a player gets a yellow card? What do they lose, measurably?

    Nothing for one yellow card. But if they get a second yellow card in the game it adds up to a red card or ejection. The team doesn't get to replace him then so they play a man down.

    Also, I think for tournaments, (not sure about league rules) if they get a certain number of yellow cards in various rounds, they are suspended from the next game.

    You can get a yellow card for various reasons but mostly for dangerous play or unsportsmanlike conduct. If you get 2 yellow cards in the same game, you get kicked off the field (you get the 2nd yellow card, then he flashes the red). In most leagues, when you get red carded in a game, you’re also suspended for the next game (or 2 depending on the severity of your fouls).

    You can get a red card off the bat even if you didn’t receive a yellow card beforehand. This happens for blatant/violent fouls, fighting/striking another player (Zidane’s headbutt for instance) or if you commit a foul on a player as the last defender (a guy is on a breakaway and you foul him).

    In international play, you’re allowed 1 yellow card in the first round of a tournament. If you get a 2nd one, in a separate game, you’ll be suspended the next one. Once in the playoff round, you’re yellow card count goes back to zero. Similar rules exist in every league with different rules. Generally it’s 2 yellow cards in 3 or 4 straight games, and you get a suspension.

    In conclusion, the effect of a yellow card is a player may play less aggressively while he’s under the menace of a 2nd one which would mean a red card (leaving his team one man down) + suspension (in which case he can of course be replaced).

    I am not a big basketball fan but a yellow card might be better compared to a foul in basketball, after you get 5 you are removed from the game and as you get closer to the fifth you do play less aggressively, especially on defense. Onlt difference is that in basketball when you go over your limit in fouls you can play in the next game but in soccer if you get two yellows or one red you will be out the next game or possibly more.

    That could actually be a good idea: use basketball fouling system in soccer. There wouldn’t be any more arguing with the ref if it deserved a yellow or a red. It would also cut down on the cheap bastard type fouls 40 meters from your goal to chop the pace of the game.

    5 (or x) fouls and you’re out of the game.

    Interesting.

    Good idea on paper but i think i'd be hard to pull it off on the pitch. It'd become too stop start.

    The way it is at the moment works, if only everyone was on the same page. What one ref might think is a yellow card offence, another might not even think its a foul......

    Yeah I know, just thinking out loud. I don’t think the stop-start would be a problem. Some games are already like that. It could work if noone faked the fouls. With the faking it’s almost impossible to pull off.

    Thank you all for your replies. It just kind of dawned on me while watching a soccer match a week ago, after watching a player get a yellow card, that the yellow card didn't seem to mean anything, penalty-wise.

    The player didn't really lose anything. Nor did his team. After a minute for the referee to pull the yellow card and write it down on the score card, play resumed right where it left off.

    Yellow cards also carry over into the next match.

    If a player gets one in consecutive matches, he is suspended for the next match.

    They do have major short term ramifications.

    Really? That's your agenda?

    State here your poster blacklist. Only 4-5 people will see it.

    I was going to make a similar analogy. But, I think of a yellow card more like a technical foul. 2 and you are gone. The 1st one is worse in Basketball becaue the other team gets foul shots and the ball, but in soccer, the 2nd is far worse because you have to play 11 vs. 10 the rest of the way.
