1860 München’s Friedhelm “Timo” Konietzka gets his marching orders from the referee on Matchday 8 of the 1966/67 season in a game against his former club Borussia Dortmund. The striker was subsequently banned for 6 months for assault on the referee. It still stands as the longest ever suspension for a red card in league history. Konietzka is still famously known for scoring the very first Bundesliga goal after the league was put together in 1963 when playing for Dortmund.
