Description of this idea

If you commit an offense and receive a yellow card, you have to go out immediately for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes you can get back in. This way there is a direct opportunity to gain advantage when the other team receives a yellow card. Hopefully players will also try to do a proper tackle and not trying to cut other players in half...

Inspiration for this idea

It is strange that you don't get any immediate punishment as a team if one of your players commit an offense.
