During a J-League match between Nagoya Grampus Eight and Ventforet Kofu, Nagoya's Australian striker Joshua Kennedy delivered an elbow to the ribs of Brazilian defender Daniel, who responded with a casual headbutt to the face. That sent Kennedy to the ground and, for some reason, Daniel too.
Though Daniel stayed down longer, the referee pegged him for the man to be sent off. It's tough to get away with a headbutt AND a dive. Even if you play dead.
