The yellow-carding of a rugby or football player is, in my view, a sporting spectacle in itself.
It’s the sense of anticipation that draws me. One can sense 30,000 bottoms sliding forward on their stadium seats as the referee summons a player after some egregious sin.
It is clear what’s coming. The referee is strutting and looking especially officious by this stage.
The player receives a brief dressing down and the referee, in a grand flourish, reaches for his pocket and pulls out the yellow card, or possibly even a red card.
The FEI has a yellow-card system, too. However, their use does not generate anything like the same drama and spectacle.
In equestrian sport, the yellow card is essentially a small yellow form which is printed out and given to the offending rider by the president of the ground jury at an event. No drama. No theatrics. That, my friends, is the FEI way.
