Show visibly disrespectful behaviour to any match official

 

Respond aggressively to decisions

Confront an official face to face

Run towards an official to contest a decision

 

Offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures towards match officials Red cards will be issued to players who confront match officials and use offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures towards them.

Physical contact with match officials

 

A yellow card for physical contact with any match official in a non-aggressive manner (e.g. an inquisitive approach to grab the official’s attention).

 

A red card for physical contact with match officials in an aggressive or confrontational manner.

 

Surrounding match officials

A yellow card for at least one player when two or more from a team surround a match official.

Will happen to one of our players, the media will then go on and on about it while using a picture of our player.

 

Nobody will ever be punished again for a similar incident.

 

Just like the Mascherano incident all those years ago, which was aimed at Chelsea and Manc players but suddenly became about us. Similar incident with Pepe apparently handling the ball outside the area, the media went on about how refs and linesmen were clamping down, never seen that given again myself.

I can also see the officials making an example out of Klopp as well. Seeing as they are going to be clamping down on the behaviour in the technical area.

 

 

I do think the reaction of players at times is terrible I look at the way someone like Rooney and he's not alone in this. He would get right in the ref's face swearing etc and I can't help but think if I was the ref id have to be held back from assaulting him never mind give out a yellow or red card for taking that abuse.

Gone by mid-August as it was the official's fault and the "victim" was an England player.

 

But a nice thought.

 

Talking tough is what the FA are good at.  But then the season actually starts...

Good idea but doubt it would be enforced. Some of the behaviour of the players towards referees is downright disgraceful. Rooney is the worst culprit I have ever seen that always gets away with it. He'll probably be immune from these regulations.

It's a nice idea, but they can't even be bothered to call players out on foul throws.

 

Still, it's a step in the right direction, you don't want to remove the passion but it's just galling watching a highly skilled millionaire pretend he didn't touch the ball last - when he's surrounded by a multitude of cameras that caught the act - then shout "fuck off!" in the face of a jobsworth with a flag for calling a decision he knows is correct.

 

Make 'em play in their vest and pants, that's what I say.

We'll get shafted whilst the usual suspects continue to do as they like.

 

No change really, other than making it slightly easier for the ref to influence the game in favour of whoever they want to win the match.

FA trying to beat their chests and pretend they have some control over global football culture. As everyone else has said, they'll fine a few high profile players (probably foreigners and one token Englishman) before everyone forgets about it when the next big story emerges.

Absolute nonsense that can't be policed. On the other hand I believe there's a few quid to made here from the bookies on the card indexes. Need to study up on this one.

It's a fucking wonder they have time for all this whilst casting the net far and wide to recruit a new manager. Just what do they fucking do in all seriousness? 

To spout this bollocks and come up with Bruce or Sham for manager takes the collective intellect of a row of carrots. The future of the English games rests in the hands of a handful of root vegetables

They're introducing this just in time for Shitcoat at Old Trafford?

 

Could be fun.

This thread is shite, by the way.

 

Have a read of all the sulky paranoid "they'll pick on us" nonsense, then imagine what you'd say if you were reading the same comments on GOT.

Every reason to be paranoid after the Mascherano scapegoat affair. Ashley gets away with it,Rooney gets away with it and then they made a point with Mascherano.

 

Anyone thinking they wont jump on Klopp is nuts

The initiative, which is backed by the Professional Footballers’ Association and the League Managers’ Association, arguably does not come before time. There has not been a red card for foul and abusive language in a Premier League game since Javier Mascherano was dismissed during Liverpool’s 3-0 defeat against Manchester United on 23 March 2008, and that was after two yellow cards.

 A good point.I remember Duncan Ferguson and James McFadden both getting sent off for Everton for swearing at refs when playing for Everton-at a time when no other players were, but claiming victimisation before a ball has even been kicked this season is madness.

And Mascheraano was rightly dismissed-he was overbearingly abusive and wouldn't get out of the ref's face.
