      Hi Marin, thanks for your message. The last one is tricky, because most referees will feel the opponent’s deserve more. The 3rd Team also wrote an interesting story DOGSO offences recently. They already mention that substitute players and team officials are more heavily punished. The rules do not mention players who are temporary off the pitch yet, but who knows if The IFAB will change that rule as well. Keep an eye open for that.

    Your “correct” answer to Question #5 is incorrect. Please see IFAB Circular #7 wherein the IFAB provides the following clarification:
    “Denial of an obvious goal-scoring opportunity by entering the field of play
    • Any player, substitute or team official who enters the field of play without the required referee’s permission and prevents a goal or denies an obvious goal-scoring opportunity must be sent off, even if no other offence is committed.”

    I see how it is DOGSO by infringement of the LOTG, but I can’t see how it is a PK. I see he is a player of record, but he commits no foul, so why is it punished with DFK/PK instead of IFK? Question #5

      If you check page 36: “If play is stopped and the interference was by a team official, substitute, substituted or sent off player, play restarts with a direct free kick or penalty kick”
