inserting them in videos doesnt tickle my fancy.
Although I do have a favorite goat video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9Iq6LA7sZI

A true classic. Those goats were screaming at eachother before it got cool.

So apparently I've been around for 7 years by now. Time flies.

Eleven as of yesterday. It feels more like a constant at this point.

Blizzard has one of the most obnoxious customer support systems ever.

If you cannot log into your account you must contact customer service, but in order to contact customer service you must log in to your account.

I've not had that problem, though, to get my account back I had to scan them a copy of my passport, yay. . . .

Are you sure that wasn't the Nigerian Prince of Blizzard?

No, it was definitely them. I also definitely didn't look like a communist in my passport photo.

Anyone have any opinions on Nani's Red Card today in the Manchester United/Real Madrid, Champions league match?

Personally I thought it was reckless - he assumed no other player was close and so raised his leg in a dangerous position. The Madrid player had a right to go for the ball without fear of a studded boot in the kidneys. As such, it should have been a yellow card for a reckless foul.

The referee could only have interpreted it as excessive force to justify the red card. However Nani was trying to control a high ball, not make a challenge. The force of the challenge was partly a result of the Madrid player's momentum. The refs interpretation was wrong but of course his view of the incident may have affected his decision.

What's the consequence of a red card?

You have to stop playing and get supsended for some time (I'm not sure how long).

I believe the suspension - if one is applied - tends to be decided by some ruling body based on how serious the offense was?

As well as having to leave the game for whatever time is left, leaving your team 1 man short, usually there is an automatic 1 further game suspension in the same competition.

As Xocrates says though, the suspension can be increased based on the nature of the offence. Usually this will happen if the red carded player exhibits dissent towards the officials or if the original offense was particularly unsporting or nasty e.g. racial slurs, spitting, headbutt.
