How Is This For A Short Lived Celebration?

In a football match between Servette and Schafthausen yesterday, the home team won 4-1. But few will remember the match for the final result.

One of Servette's players, Paulo Diogo, delivered a pass which resulted in a goal for the homeside, and celebrated by jumping up on the fence where the fans were sitting. But his celebration was short lived. As he jumped back down from the fence, his wedding ring was stuck. This caused serious injury to his finger, which was amputated a few hours after the game.

Diogo also got a yellow card for his celebration. Now that just sucks...  Smile

He lost a finger, and got a yellow card? Rough day.

I heared a story that after finishing a stage in the WRC, Colin McRae once found a finger stuck in his side morror on the car. One of the spectators must have come too close.

Hey Bragi I just noticed your signature. Have to argue with that statement. Chuck Yeager and Mel Apt are two people I can name right off the top of my head who were injured colliding with nothing but sky. Of course their collisions came at about Mach 2.3 and 3.0 respectively. Oh yeah! John Stapp would be another.

The ref didn't happen to be Swiss perchance?

Ouch that's really harsh, I think the sport is going downhill when you can get carded for celebrating during the match. Maybe if he was swearing at the opposition or something I could understand.

Far too often sports participants tend to overdo the celebrations from scoring a winning point(s) and end up being injured, sometimes seriously so as in the initial post here. It also is bad sportsmanship, makes it like your gloting over your oppositions loss. Your fans may like the celebrations, but it can often cause anger in the opposition's fans and may lead to problems (like the stupidity of International Football (Soccer) fans, especially in the UK). In USA professional Football, there are penalties for overdoing celebrations or actions of intimidation on the field of play or in the endzone after scoring, in part to reduce the risk of injury and to tone down the unsportsmanlike beheavor.

I've heard living in GVA for too long could be harmful for your mental health...

Is that a proof ?

He deserved his yellow card, thats one of the reasons you do get booked for such actions, because it is dangerous... Although it is arguable whether he deserved the yellow card 'warning' after the event had happened.

Actually Thom@s, it comes from Swedish newpaper Aftonbladet's website, i agree that it looks fake but it said nothing about being a montage or whatever. Strange.

There seems to be several versions of the story. The one I read, said that his finger was injured, and later amputated at the hospital. The one Banco posted in his thread on the subject, claims the finger came off, and that the remaining part of his figer was later amputated. If that is the case, thne the pic could be real after all.

The pic is real.

If you check where it is from, you see it is from an actual newspaper.
