Best Answer

No. The only rules incumbent on the keeper as regards uniform are identical to those the rest of the players must observe, except that the keeper's uniform must make it easy to distinguish him from his teammates, the other team, and the officials. Rolling up a long-sleeved keeper jersey's sleeves is not a violation of the Laws of the Game. Additionally, it is neither unsafe nor is it unsporting. A referee could not justify issuing a caution to a keeper for "rolling up his sleeves" in a match. The only reason that could possibly satisfy any repercussion would using this as a timewasting tactic.

Why do you roll up your sleeves when working in the kitchen?

This is mostly for the convenience of the cook - cooking is typically a moderately intense physical activity, so rolling up your sleeves help to keep you cooler. Also, particularly when working with sauces or flour, any splashes or 'puffs' of flour that are on your skin are easier to wash off than those on your sleeves. There is also a personal safety element to this: when working around hot foods or open flames, you don't want a sleeve that can either soak up hot liquid and burn or or a sleeve that could catch fire and burn you.
