The one thing different for me will be to go to lower league matches on a regular basis, that means the kiss of death for Poole Town 😒8th April 2020 at 1:07 pm #94157Chelsea1967Participant85 pts

Chuckles, that rule is already in in grass roots footy, dissent gives you a yellow card and period of time in the sin bin (duration dependent on age) do it again and you get a second yellow and back in the sin bin, if you get two sin bins you can’t return to the game but it doesn’t count as a red card so no suspension.
As for no yellow card, dissent is a yellow card offence so go with the same rules as grass roots…..Pagan9th April 2020 at 2:04 pm #94578
Peggy, not aware of that, but I would go along with it.
And fit up the refs with mics/cameras (they’ve got all the gear in rugby so I can’t see how that could even a problem with a small p!). Was watching a brilliant clip on Youtube earlier, and there’s was one clip where a player took a bit of a theatric tumble and the ref blew for the penalty in his favour (as there was illegal contact) before saying “But you were a bit of a tit there, weren’t you? Not good for the game!” and instantly reversed it for “ungentlemanly” conduct.
The other favourite was “Shut up, who’s the referee here? Go away!”… and the player got dragged away before a penalty try was awarded!
Still think the ref’s in footy should be allowed to give peno’s for any serious offence regardless of where it is on the pitch, that would seriously sort out shitty behaviour.9th April 2020 at 5:26 pm #94589PaganParticipant371 pts
Chuckles, I’ve seen refs carry little cards they give to gobby parents that say “You seem to know a lot about football, how about becoming a referee? Then there’s a web address for the FA learning site to book a refs course.
One lad the start of this season got a bit gobby with my eldest, who just said “if you don’t stop arguing I’ll sin bin you” the lad said “do it then I don’t care” off he went. The players manager asked why he’d been sin binned and was told, the lad came out of the bin and straight onto the bench.
As for penalties from anywhere on the pitch, I totally agree for cynical tackles or diving…..Pagan9th April 2020 at 6:33 pm #94590Brian blueParticipant424 pts9th April 2020 at 8:02 pm #94592
What about, when a player fouls player then needs to go off-field for the injury to be treated….this in my eyes “gifts” the offending team an extra player, so, my thought would be the offending player has to go off the field for the same length of time Keeps game fair and even
Great idea in principle but it took me about half a second to figure out the moment the oppo’s best player tackles somebody, the ‘victim’ will pretend to have a ‘broken leg’, and they’re both of the pitch for an “extended” period of time… it will just give ammo in the form of time-wasting and disrupting forces in the game…
