You go to your grandmother's, she accidentally knocks your head with the pot as she is serving dinner.
Do you turn to her and yell at her and call her a "f**** c***"?
If yes, she should give you a red card, and send you home without the roast and vegies.
If no, it's because you have respect for her, and you know it's inappropriate and offensive. So you bite your tongue, you control yourself. You decide not to unleash expletives.
What's the difference? In my opinion, if you say something that is potentially offensive, you can't be surprised or angry that someone was actually offended, and you deal with the consequences. Take responsibility for your own actions.

I did say 'taking into account the events and the context' Context has a wide meaning, including your additions. And yes, it could be a red, depending on a variety of contingencies but in the simple terms of how I put the question, very unlikely.
it is very clear by some of your reponses that you all are saints and if someone hacks you ,you would all get up and thank them. you dont play the game and have never been kicked from and oponent. and now you are comparing your grandma to a dirty grub
This is my opinion and i don't give a toss what you think
In the last regualtion round of the year I witnessed a girl get sent off for swearing at her best friend and team mate after they concede a goal. Considering that we have had 4 close to all in brawls with less than nothing done about any of them, it's pretty obsurd to be honest, fully understanding that the spirit of the game is trying to be upheld, how that warrants a straight red in the first 5 minutes of the game comes anywhere close to calling a bloke every name under the sun whilst threatening to stab the c*** in the carpark is just silly
bluemoon Those netballers know how to let rip. It was her first year in football. When a free kick was awarded against her previously, she stood beside where the free kick was to be taken from & said: "Is this where I stand?"
