    [Mini/Midi] Re: Let's ban an 11 year old for life

    Do we know how old the referee in question was? Because at many of our junior games the referees aren't much older than the players and are generally not the biggest kids... People calling for life...

    Re: Opening a can of worms

    This would make sense... and I feel it would resolve many problems.

    The only issue that would arise from this is the inability of a Union to tackle a specific problem within their country. Let's...

    Re: Opening a can of worms

    What I meant by accuracy etc. is that it's something that can be reviewed and sent out in another memo to get the consistency. Of course me walking up to the ref as a player/coach with a rulebook and...

    Re: Match Payments

    Menace, I think you (and others) hit the nail on the head when you said payments bring referees into it.

    I probably never would have picked up refereeing if not for match payments and, having...

    Re: Only helping the ref!

    As a general question:

    If a player on the bench runs in to join a fight or makes any other illegal action; if the offence would be punishable with a YC, does one

    Re: Dissent or just a comment?

    Taffy,
    Was there any result from the judicial hearing or did nothing occur due to the lack of a name? And surely there is a penalty against the club for refusing to supply such information?

    Re: Unconscious offending?

    I think I would probably have done the same as the Ref in the OP. Treat it as a stoppage for an injured player being in the way of play rather than a penalty.

    It doesn't make sense to me to...

    I see where you're coming from, at the extremes it changes slightly - if Green 2 had, say, jumped on top of it, or... lifted the player off the ground, I would agree in that case... but once White...

    Didds, isn't the responsibility on the men lifting to bring the tackled player down safely? That's always been my interpretation of the law (whether that is right or wrong).

    Re: 3 year ban for pushing the ref over

    1) why didn't they give him a life ban or do they not exist in that other game?
