Referee rescinds yellow card after player tells him he wasn't fouled

Christoph Kramer was shown a yellow card. Then he wasn't.

Fair play is a lovely thing. It is preached to kids everywhere, and then it goes away when they grow up because screw it, winning is more fun.

Stefan Kutschke is apparently the exception to that rule, though. When the referee showed Christoph Kramer a yellow card for being near Kutchscke when the Paderborn player fell, Kutchscke told the ref he was never fouled. He just slipped.

And the referee rescinded the yellow card.

Yay sportsmanship! Then again, Paderborn did lose.
