Sometimes it can be a hard decision between a green or a yellow card. What can make it even harder is when you have already awarded a yellow and then appear to have “gone backwards” to give a green. If you want to learn the subtle differences in breakdown play and how you can apply the process of moving up and moving down the control ladder in your games, listen to Adam Kearns work through his different responses in two situations and the reasons why he went with a green card in the second situation.
We didn’t show the clips here as this was conversation through the game and you can get the feel for what's happening in the control ladder without them. However, if you’re interested in seeing this play out then watch Adam’s full UAH episode and check out the replay of the Feb. 16 game (Match 40) between NZLvESP from the 2020 #FIHProLeague if available on Watch.Hockey.
