Two Examples of Player Dishonesty: Hong Kong Senior Shield QF

The following are video highlights of two incidents of player dishonesty from a quarter-final Senior Shield match between South China and Tai Chung on 25 December 2009 at Hong Kong Stadium. The crowd attendance was 2,537.

Although the Referee was "tricked" by the South China player (red #15), the R does a good job in minimizing dissent from the Tai Chung players by publicly warning blue #13.

Referees know that they cannot trust players to always be honest and therefore must have the self-confidence to trust in themselves and to also rely on their own team (the match officials) to make decisions.
