I submitted this edit. I think it adds a better example of the discussed situation. The example is more traceable as it featured during a World Cup Qualifier game so it would be easier to identify the players, the date, the referee etc... in short, I think it is a better source.

Maybe it was a bad idea to edit a high ranked user's post, and I'm sorry for that. But the reason given is

This edit deviates from the original intent of the post. Even edits that must make drastic changes should strive to preserve the goals of the post's owner.

I don't think it deviates from the original intent, I justed added another source to enforce the answer.

In my opinion (which matters quite a lot as it's my answer - we're a lot more tolerant of radical edits to questions than to answers), I was happy with the example that's there. In particular, as far as I can see from the clip you've linked to, I don't see the player receive a second yellow card, only a red.

(And for what it's worth, I'm not a moderator).

  • A few seconds later on the video, a flashback slow motion at 6:02 we can see the referee holding the yellow card which induced the red card. – Bebs Mar 3 '17 at 12:59
  • I also think my example is relevant because it has another yellow card reason. The first example, the reason is removing the shirt. The example I suggested, the reason is taking too much time to quit the pitch. – Bebs Mar 3 '17 at 13:12

    If you think it's a great example, you're always welcome to post your own answer :-) – Philip Kendall Mar 3 '17 at 13:15
  • @PhilipKendall I'm not sure how the OP's own answer would be any more useful. It would be your answer with a different example. – user527 Mar 3 '17 at 13:18

    I don't think it would need answer just for this. I just wanted to improve the already correct and accepted answer. – Bebs Mar 3 '17 at 13:19
  • But my question is still unresolved: why "This edit deviates from the original intent of the post. Even edits that must make drastic changes should strive to preserve the goals of the post's owner.". – Bebs Mar 3 '17 at 13:20
  • Philip stated that they saw no second yellow card in the new example, which would mean from their perspective, it doesn't match the intent of showing a red card given after the second yellow card while being substituted at all. – Nij Mar 3 '17 at 22:34
  • @Nij the example I added shows a player receiving a 2nd yellow card while leaving the pitch hence a red card. – Bebs Mar 4 '17 at 7:34
  • "... from their perspective, it doesn't match the intent ..." - it doesn't matter if the video showed fifty yellow cards, when the viewer only watches the part showing the red card because that was the only section they were asked to watch. – Nij Mar 8 '17 at 9:20
