This seems like it needs to be instituted in all sports:

Agregious Officiating Errors

Hold officials to the same level of scrutiny as the players.

Another rule in real football I'd like to see implemented in US "football"  is the ejection of a player for stopping an obvious score form occurring through fouling with no intention to "play the ball".

obvious goal scoring opportunity


Like pass interference after getting beat to prevent an obvious score, make it a "Red card" if they just out-and-out tackle the receiver before the ball gets there with no intention to play the ball, and with the ejection they will play with 10 men the rest of the game.   Prevents those serious bad sportsmanship fouls, or at least puts a huge penalty on them.  The loss of a player on the field is a great way to punish a team that cheats that way.

Go ahead and take down the receiver who just blew by you, but you will get kicked out of the game and then there will be 10 men on defense the rest of the game.  Is it worth it?  In the first quarter?

Soccer is kind of a joke to emulate if you consider how cards incentivize antics.

My son played premier soccer and center refereed some younger group aged games.  Two side lines of parents that dont know the rules but are happy to yell about every perceived violation are bad enough.
Refereeing with a full stadium of people yelling about every perceived call is a difficult position.  No referee group is going to call a perfect game in those conditions. There is such a flopping culture in soccer and basketball that makes it ridiculous to watch at times.
