Soccer Unsporting Behavior

The Referee can give a Yellow Card for behavior which in the Referee's judgment is unsporting or causes an unfair advantage. Examples which are mentioned in the rules, "Questions and Answers", the soccer official’s guidebook and other sources we’ve been able to find include: any action designed to deceive the Referee; behavior which in the Referee's judgment is unsporting or causes an unfair advantage; faking an injury; saying things that are designed to confuse or distract an opponent; harassment (such as jumping around, shouting or making gestures to intentionally distract an opponent); jumping in front of a corner kick, free kick or throw-in; worrying the goalkeeper or trying to prevent him from putting the ball into play; hard fouls; holding an opponent or deliberately handling the ball for the purpose of preventing an opponent from gaining possession of the ball; adopting a threatening posture; gaining an unfair advantage by leaning on, climbing on the back of, or holding a teammate or the goal; blatant cases of holding and pulling an opposing player or his uniform. If the ball was in play when the Unsporting Behavior occurred, play will be restarted with an Indirect Free Kick. If the Unsporting Behavior occurred during a stoppage of play, play will be restarted as it normally would. See Cards and Fouls
