Mechanics of giving a card

Have you had a referee mentor who told you that you should isolate the player to whom you are giving a card? Do you know why?

It’s important to make it to clear to everyone who is getting a card. Even if you are not refereeing with 80,000 fans, team officials watching the game from 40 yards away need to know who just received a card. The ARs also need to know. If ARs write down a wrong number, you may have a situation where the referee gives a second caution send-off to someone who has only received one yellow card. Or the referee may not give a second caution send-off to a player who actually received their second caution in the same game.

Watch the video clip below. Do you know who received the card?
