I read some comical news today that made me giggle. During a Sweden game a referee gave a player a second yellow card (two yellow cards equal a red) for farting in public! The player was shocked and stated what was he supposed to do, he had a stomach ache during game and had to release the gas. The fart was quite loud and heard by the referee hence why the player was sent off. Oh my this made me laugh, what a stupid referee. The content of this post is sourced from the following reference: www.theguardian.com/football/2016/jun/22/swedish-footballer-sent-off-for-farting-during-match
A Swedish footballer has hit out after being sent off for breaking wind during a match – with the referee accusing him of ‘deliberate provocation’

It made e also laugh. I thought these accidents are covered under the definition of "Force Majeure" or act of god , guess the referee did not think so.

Ridiculous indeed when you consider what goes unpunished on a football pitch.

It is a natural thing, surely should not get punished for it!

Lolz. That reminds me of the time David Beckham had to admit that yes, he had gone to the toilet on the pitch whilst sitting in a position which was undeniably him going to the toilet!

it's so stupid when someone that has a great deal of power can do terrible things to other people because they didn't like something about the other person. In this case, the referee did not like the fart.

I know, shows how power can really go to people's head.

Haha Seriously? That's so weird But what triggers me most is if the regulations of the FIFA Arbritrary Commission permits that or is it just the referee's decision?
