I've seen yellow given for that in the game but never red. Sometimes the 3d view is not as accurate as it should be though - either that or the ref hasn't spotted it if the text commentary does say it was outside the area.

I was playin a network game with my mate and i went to watch his match. He was sunderland and Gordon got sent off for hand balling outside the area. I was laughing so much. So yes they can get sent off

i had a keeper catch the ball inside the area and just walk out holding it. that gets a red card...probably for plain idiocy. lol

Yep. I was managing Millwall against my beloved Peterborough and the Posh 'keeper Joe Lewis dived on the ball and handled outside the box and was sent off in the 36th minute with Posh up 1-0.

Still lost though - they essentially parked the bus and nothing i did helped.

Its happened to me about 4 times in total lol.

I was managing Chelsea using Hamachi against one of my friends and Petr Cech got sent off for handling the ball outside the box so yes your goalkeeper can be sent off.
