Ashley Vickers Gets Red Card for Tackling Borat Streaker (Video)

Note to all footballers: if a fan runs onto the field, don’t do anything — even if it holds the game up and/or makes you feel threatened. During a Conference South match between Dorchester Town and Havant and Waterlooville, Ashley Vickers had to learn that the hard way.  The Dorchester Town player decided to do everyone a favor and tackle a fan who rushed the field dressed in a Borat costume, only to be slapped with a red card by the official.  Have a look at the video, courtesy of BBC Sport via The Big Lead:

The red card was given for using “excessive force.”  Huh?  On an idiotic fan?  Maybe I don’t know enough about soccer, but I don’t understand this at all.  MLB players have tripped field-rushers before and all they get is a handshake from security.  An official throwing a player out of a game for taking care of business makes absolutely no sense to me.  On a separate note, I must admit the Borat theme was pretty classic.
