You-Call-It #61


Blue 17 fouls red 12 at 65 minutes inside the blue penalty area. The referee stops play to show a yellow card to blue 17, and restart with a PK. Blue 17 fell awkwardly and is in apparent distress. Apparently injured blue 17 is substituted with blue #9 with permission of the referee
Before the Pk commences the near AR signals over to the referee, the we need to talk signal. The referee is shocked to learn that 17 blue was in fact the keeper #1 earlier in the first half and already on a yellow card for dissent. There was a jersey switch at the half in which the referee was informed of a keeper to be exchanged but not that the keeper #1 was now #17. The new keeper was a substitute keeper and the former #17 player was injured and thus gave up his jersey prior to the second half restarting. Your match, your decision, your reputation!
