2018
-1970
= 48 years of yellow and red cards! 48 years has been a long time to enjoy a system!

Anyway, seriously, what does it really matter how long?
If the idea is a good idea, it's GOOD! Why not?

It's like... why would it matter what color cards were?
Sacre Bleu! Even Soccer Blue would've been a good color!

The system is excellent, and it works! Leave it alone!
