Speaking of unbeknownst...

Back around 1976 or so I was playing in Southern California. I received a caution in a match. It happens.

However.... (there is ALWAYS a however), following the game and unbeknownst to me or any of my teammates the referee in his infinite wisdom (though by what authority unknown) issued a **team caution** and reported every player on my team to the league.

That meant a second yellow card for me, which the referee reported as a send-off.

The league in its infinite wisdom (or lack thereof) suspended me for a game for having been sent off (which I did not know had happened until later in the week when the team manager was informed).

Creative interpretation of the LOTG to say the least. The league did not overturn the **team caution** or my suspension.

Oh, well...
