By the way. Did I mention? This is between two girls. Actually. I take that back. It’s between one girl and another girl’s face. This is definitive poor sportsmanship, or sportswomanship, if you’re inclined to be so PC. I’m not. It’s rather savage. It won’t bother you to watch–as in, it won’t make your stomach turn–but it may bother you to watch if, if you’re pickin’ up what I’m layin’ down.
High school soccer match. Girls are running the pitch in what seems like slow motion, then a more skilled player begins to move the ball. As you’ll see on the video, she’s tripped. Any contact certainly looks incidental, but this is a fine example of timing being everything. Wrong time to trip this girl. She responds in kind–scratch that–she completely overreacts and goes…off…
So. In summation. If you’re a soccer player, and you want to see how to get a red card, the following is a fine example. This isn’t the kind of thing you see in World Cup action, or the International Friendlies. Yeah, I think a lot of people would be more into the game if this happened regularly, but this is way over the line.
