    That's still a rule isn't it? I'm trying to raise the issue with EA that that shitty cutscene in Fifa where players are "demanding" a yellow card be removed, particularly galling when you see an English player in that cutscene :(

    I think it is a rule, but not taken too seriously by players and refs. A bit like taking your shirt off after a goal.

    I've also seen it not taken seriously in the Champions League a few times, especially from goals later on in matches. I personally think its a stupid rule.

    I've not seen a single player remove his short after scoring and not be booked since the rule was introduced a few years ago.

    Lucho, got sent off, when he took off his shirt, in Porto's CL game in Kiev. (second yellow).

    Stupid rule too.

    What's the logic behind that rule anyway? Is it supposed to delay kick off or something?

    Blatter said it was because women football players were taking their tops off too, and with women, you have boobage. So he created the rule to stop both sexes.

    Nah, it's all about not showing the sponsor logo when the camera closes on the player.

    I thought the shirt off thing was one of either a. excessive celebrating (also for example going into the crowd or standing on the hoarding) or 2. some kind of dissent, ie taunting the opposition or such like.

    I agree of course that it's a really stupid rule and players should be encouraged to show passion and enthusiasm, except of course for those instances where the behaviour is 1. dangerous 2. inciting the opposition crowd (for example Mr. G. Neville against Liverpool)........
