Ronaldo gets a yellow on purpose?

[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Cristiano Ronaldo earned himself a yellow card in stoppage time of Portugal's 1-1 tie with Israel, which means he's suspended for Tuesday's game against lowly Luxembourg for accumulated cautions. It also ensures he'll be available for the a probable playoff game for World Cup qualification, which means we're wondering if he committed the cautionable offense intentionally. You be the judge ...

"I can't talk about that (booking)," Ronaldo said. "FIFA is always very attentive to those situations. The playoff is the most important and I don't want to be out. I will be at those two matches."

    Change the laws, or this will happen. The fact is: he's smart, and of course he can't agree that he did it to game the system. But situations such as this happen all the time and commentators are smarter than this but can't state the obvious? The laws are written, and there will always be unintended consequences, plug the loop hole, or by not addressing this, you are tacitly agreeing with this situation.
