A yellow card is just a caution, warning the player not to repeat the mistake he/she did to earn the yellow card. A red card sends the player off of the playing field. As a referee, we give yellow cards is someone makes a 100% misconduct, for example hitting, spitting, tripping, etc. If a player receives two yellow cards, then that results in an automatic red card. We also give a player a red card if that player is intentionally trying to injure a player. Or they are being completely dangerous to the players around him/her. And finally we give a player a red card for not fixing a problem after receiving a caution/yellow card.
