Footballers Are Idiots: When Flatulence Gets You a Yellow Card
It's procedural for an official to check a substitution's boots before the player can take to the pitch. But when referee, Bunny Reid (With that name, who would take this guy seriously anyway?), went to check the boots of Levi Foster, there was a breaking of wind from the substitute. After threatening to throw the player out, Reid was convinced that a less intense warning was a more suitable punishment.
The game ended 5-0 and Foster was named Man of the Match.
After all was done and dusted, Foster admitted: "I had a curry the night before."
