Green card?!?

I just stumbled across this. A trial run whereby players will be given a green card for sporting behavior in Serie B this season.

Seems a bit pointless to me, although it is an admirable idea in principle. Would be pretty cool if you could earn one of these and then get

a freebie at someone, e.g., Rooney.

Heard about this, would rather the time spent giving a green card was used for video replays of big decisions like an offside call, we've seen in cricket and tennis how quick the calls can be made

This is fine, but the incentive to get one is basically non-existent at the moment.

 

Make them count as a negative yellow in terms of suspensions etc, and we'd be talking. You've got your 5 yellows, but you're not suspended yet because you picked up 2 greens along the way.
