I am having second thoughts about this new trend. When Dom Dwyer pulled his selfie off (see last post), it was in good fun and marketing for Sporting Kansas City. Now we have fans racing onto the field to take selfies. I imagine security will need beefing up at matches worldwide to tackle these guys before they reach the players. What do you think? Is this out of control?
While celebrating his goal, Sporting Kansas City’s striker, Dom Dwyer, was yellow-carded for taking a selfie. You can check it out in the highlights video above at the match’s 33 minutes mark, about three minutes into the video. The odd foul, if you can call it such, happened in KC’s match against Chicago Fire on Sunday.
Has anyone done that before? You tell me. I had a good laugh.
The guys over at soccerbyives.net had this to say…
The uneasy start for the home side would be erased minutes later though thanks to a Fire mishap and Dwyer goal. Defender Patrick Ianni appeared to be playing a ball back to goalkeeper Sean Johnson, but a poor first touch would leave Dwyer all alone for an excellent curling effort to put the home side up 1-0. The goal prompted an amusing celebration which saw Dwyer and teammate Soony Saad take a selfie in front of a number of enthusiastic fans, though referee Alan Kelly didn’t find it as charming — showing Dwyer a yellow card for his antics.
And here’s the actual selfie:
What harm could this selfie cause?
