In a wild game between Salford City FC and Bradford Park Avenue AFC, a bizarre penalty was enforced. Salford City’s keeper, Max Crocombe, got a red card for urinating while on the field.
Yes, you read that right. Apparently, Crocombe had to take a tinkle, and he decided the best spot to do his business was right there on the pitch. Thankfully, it didn’t interfere with the play on the field, but the fans in the stands didn’t let it go unnoticed and started chanting and singing about Crocombe’s bladder.
The funniest part of this is that neither club knew exactly what was going on. When the ejection happened, both teams’ social media accounts didn’t understand the penalty.
86′ – RED CARD! This is bizarre. Salford goalkeeper Max Crocombe has been dismissed and no one knows why… #greenarmy (1-2)

Crocombe later sent out an apology for his actions via social media. It was quite an embarrassing turn of events for the goalkeeper, and he showed his remorse.

This raises the question: What is an athlete supposed to do if they need to pee in the middle of a heated game? Just go in their pants? We now know they are not allowed to whip out their junk and pee on the field.
