Can't the ref stop the clock once 80 minutes has past?

And if he can, why wasn't the clock stopped at the end of the Wales game? Made their yellow a farce as most of the 10 minutes, the game was stopped.

I doubt anyone has ever considered the necessity until now.

Has anyone else ever been yellowed after the 80 and come back on?

Maybe have a rule that anyone yellowed after 70 is off for the rest of the match?

As far as I'm aware, minutes played beyond 40 minutes at the end of the first half never count towards a yellow's 10 minutes.

There is just reason to stop it from game management point of view.
The only thing that matters is the game only stops at the next break in play.

Every yellow card is 10 mins of gametime on the clock, irrespective of when it is.
If the clock is stopped by the ref, then the yellow 10 min clock also stops.

Quite, so overtime does count for the totting up procedure .. however .. does it make any difference after 80 minutes as it can only be one phase of play before the end of the game [excepting penalties] so no matter how much time has elapsed surely the offender cannot return?



This pantomime; just put it .. behind you!

OK but I beg to differ. More than once, have seen players get a yellow on, say, 37 minutes of first half which then over runs by several minutes. 4 or 5 even. The player will still have 7 minutes on their yellow when the 2nd half starts.

But that misses the point. Shouldn't the clock have been stopped (and so for the yellow too) whilst all the discussion was going on? Wales player would never have managed to serve his 10 minutes then.

The ref was correct as the clock doesn't stop after 80 mins, maybe it should do, but how often has this happened?

At a rough guess it's never been an issue before, but there will now be an edict saying the referee must manage time after 80 mins in the same way as the rest of the game.

But you have to take into account the WB show. If he had given a pt after the 2nd penalty, none of the future quiz questions would have happened. He tried to involve the 4th off. at one time but he was having none of it
