I believe someone somewhere in our comments section discussed whether yellow card accumulation carry over into the playoffs.
So, I took the opportunity to ask Sigi Schmid this morning after Sounders training.
“Yellow cards at this stage do not carry over. If somebody picks up their fifth yellow in this last game, he will be fined but it doesn’t carry over into a suspension for a playoff game. Red cards do [carry over into playoffs]. So we want to make sure nobody gets a red card in the last game.”
