The Official, besides being able to Caution a player with a Yellow Card or Expel a player from the field (Red Card), may also choose to warn the player of what he feels is not reckless or dangerous enough to warrant either a yellow or red card. Usually this means listening to the Referees reasoning of why he/she is warning you.
