[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Two Bundesliga teams in relegation danger met on Saturday but despite the stakes, Werder Bremen's Aaron Hunt convinced the referee to rescind his penalty-kick call -- explaining he had stumbled and not been tripped. In the same game, Nuremberg's Hiroshi Kiyotake also helped out ref Manuel Grafe.

Bremen held on to its 2-0 lead after Hunt turned down the penalty-kick opportunity.

In the first half, Kiyotake admitted he had the last touch after Grafe thought it should have been a corner kick.

    It is very impressive to see such sporting behavior at such a high level of play even when the games are so important. I only hope that their teammates would support their actions as well, in spite of the fact that their actions take away an advantage that their team would have.
