A new soccer fan's appeal: Referee my blog!

I apologize during pre-season for the gaffs I will undoubtedly make in my coverage of soccer during this first season of writing The Lion's Teeth. As I stated in my first post I'm a relatively new fan to the game that the rest of the world calls “football.” As such I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of the rules or the subtle nuances within the game. And with all the changes this season it's going to take me a while to be able to recognize all the new players without being able to verify with the number on their shirt. In such instances, I feel it only fair that readers and followers issue a “fan Yellow Card” for getting something wrong and they will help me correct it. Hopefully one booking for any such offense will be enough to keep me from repeating the same error in the future!
