Blowing The Whistle On Kasi Flavour

An interesting event occurred recently in South African football. A player from Baroka FC was given a yellow card for a display of skill during the game against Platinum Stars. Some call it showboating, some call it kasi flavour, and it is a big part of South African football. The supporters are said to love it, but is it a bookable offence?

Bakgaga's Sipho Moeti was reprimanded by referee Naasief Julius over the weekend after he dropped one knee after another on to the ball in the game as a show of flavour.

This is a supporters issue, so we would love to hear your thoughts…

The one side of the argument, as presented by the likes of Jerome Damon and Gavin Hunt is that the player deserved to be cautioned because kasi flavour is only acceptable if it is used to move forward in the game productively. If it is not used to advance the attack, then it is seen as disrespectful.

Many say that the disrespect therefore means the player should be booked for unsportsmanlike behavior.

The other argument is that kasi flavour is part of our footballing culture. Many have said that the poor stadium attendances in South Africa is largely due to the decrease in kasi flavour seen in the games. The supporters rise to their feet in elation every time a show is put on. Many have said that the more entertainment, the better, and seeing as football is all about entertainment, the flavour should stay...

Now we need to hear from you!

Did Moeti deserve to be booked or not?
