Player shown red card in FA Cup tie for flashing referee his privates!

August 20th, 2013

Well, you don’t see this every day.

Croydon Athletic’s Louis Blake was sent off during Saturday’s FA Cup preliminary round match against Colliers Wood for “accidentally flashing” the referee.

How could this possibly happen, you ask?

Blake, who came on as a second-half substitute, was wearing black thermal shorts underneath his maroon uniform, which the referee spotted and rightly declared was against FA regulation (players can’t wear undergarments that are different from the team’s primary uniform color).

Despite letting the referee know he had no replacement underwear, Blake was ordered to go back to the locker room to remove the shorts. The 21-year-old obliged, returning onto the field the only way he could: “commando” style.

This is where everything took a turn for the worse. After the referee demanded to see if the shorts were, in fact, removed, Blake pulled his shorts down juuust a bit too much, giving the ref a glimpse of his privates. Immediately, the red card came out and Blake was sent off, all because he was just following the referee’s instructions.

Incensed, Blake had this to say after the match:

“I was gobsmacked, I was shocked and I was angry. I just pulled my shorts forward a bit to show him there was nothing there and he gave me a red.

“How else am I meant to prove I’ve got nothing on down there? All I wanted to do was make a good impression on my debut and now I’m probably going to have to miss three games.”

The lesson? Guys, don’t be ashamed to match your underwear. Sometimes it can prove to be quite important.
