For me there is too much randomness in the dishing out of cards to be able to read much into it.
Morever the bald statistic of a yellow or red doesn't tell you what it is for. It could be spitting at a player or waving an imaginary card or falling over too easily in the box.
Sometimes a tackle that puts a player out of action isn't even punished.

It can show effort AND how far a team is willing to go to win.
But do the best teams pick up the most yellow cards?

Not according to this for the Premier League…

And definitely not if you look at the NLS table!

No! Good teams to not have to result heavy tactics.

Best teams as in those in high positions in table!
Manchester City are the best team in England - they are also masters at conning officials (apologies to Yuffie!)
