Abstract: 
We investigate whether soccer players collect their fifth yellow card and their suspension by choice. Using data for the German Bundesliga for the seasons 13/14 to 16/17, we show that the quality of the player's own team, the quality of the teams participating in the next matches, and whether a team wins or not increase the probability of a player collecting his fifth yellow card.
