Do UEFA need to change their rules over not taking action against yellow card offences?
After Flamini's appalling, off the ground 2 footed tackle (automatic red card) on Corluke on Tuesday, Spurs v AC Milan, UEFA say that because it was given only a yellow card, they can take no action.
You are absolutely right - there is a real lack of consistency in their approach to rules and changing them.
Look if the referry had decided it as a yellow then UEFA has nothing to do. because when referry gives someone a undeserved card UEFA doesn't do anything in that case.
UEFA adopts that position because FIFA law states that such decisions are made "in the opinion of the referee." If they decide to turn yellow cards into red cards, they would undermine the judgement of the match referee. UEFA and other bodies do not contradict the referee's decision in such cases. Removing a red card is a bit different, since it means that the player can play in the following game in the competition. However, this preserves the authority of the match officials.
