Soccer Player Removes Shorts After Goal: Montenegro striker Mirko Vucinic celebrated his goal in Friday's 1-0 win over Switzerland in a Euro 2012 qualifying match by removing his shorts and running around the pitch in his tidy whities.

And people in America complain about (American) football celebrations.

What, is there a loophole where you get an automatic yellow for taking your shirt off after scoring a goal, but they forgot to mention a yellow card for taking off your shorts?

There is no loophole. This was almost assuredly a yellow card. Players still take their shirts off knowing full well they're going to get the card. I suspect this was just the same thinking. Read the third question HERE.

That's "tightie whities", rcade. There's a reason why they tell guys to try switching to boxers if they're firing blanks...

Well i didn't think there was a loophole, but if there was it might have made sense of this sort of 'celebration'. Now I don't know what to think - taking off your shorts is harder to do than taking off your shirt and just looks silly. What's the point, if you get a yellow either way?
