FIFA, the world football governing body, have announced further details of their proposed idea to introduce an Orange Card to the game; which would cause the penalised player to be sent off the pitch for a period of time.
The card itself will be graded in colour from yellow to red, with the orientation informing the player of their sanction. If the card is shown with the yellow end uppermost, the player must sit on the edge of the technical area with their head facing the wall. After five minutes, they must apologise to the fourth official and will be allowed back onto the pitch once they've made up.
If the card is shown with the red visible, the player must sit out seven minutes of action - then publicly explain the error of their ways to the crowd before the next home game.
"We at FIFA are proud of our continual innovation of the sport." Said Richard Onowale, spokesman for the federation. "From adding non-participating officials to designing balls that are even more spherical, you can be assured that FIFA is at the forefront of managing integration and development of the beautiful game."
Onowale also announced an additional rule for the Women's Game developed by FIFA President Sepp Blatter. For a minor offence, the referee may choose to show a pink card. For this, instead of a suspension or sending off, the player must receive a hard spanking over the knee of the referee, while the fourth official records the event to ensure discipline has been handed out in a fair and metered manner. The FIFA President himself will then study all tapes thoroughly to make sure the new penalty is effective.
"I like to make sure bad girls are punished." Said the president when telephoned asking for a comment.
