When my cousin was visting from England 2 seasons ago, the keeper for the team the Kickers were playing was called for a handball. (He stepped over the line and kicked the ball.) After discussion he was given a yellow and my cousin went nuts! He said that "back home" it would be a straight red. The thing that was really odd was that he had predicted early on that the keeper was going to get caught with a handball as he was really toying with the line on his kicks. And speaking of handballs, did Greggie Simmons think it was a fumble he was going after on Sunday? Sheesh.
