The Most Obvious Red Card of the Year - c/o Hamburg's Paolo Guerrero

Venue : Imtech Arena, Hamburg, Germany

Date: March 3, 2012

Occasion : Hamburg playing at home against Stuttgart, with the hosts 0-3 down at this point.

Details: HSV Striker Paolo Guerrero 'attempting' to take out Stuttgart keeper Sven Ulreich while Ulreich was letting the ball go out near the corner flag.

Result: 8 match ban for the rash tackle (which has since been appealed).

What were you thinking, Paolo Guerrero?? Wow. Potentially career-ending injury there to Ulreich, plus no hope (and intent) at all to get the ball.
