Thread: New rule coming in...... about time too

    New rule coming in...... about time too

    The FA has extended its powers to punish simulation retrospectively from next season

    A new offence of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’ will be in force from the start of the 2017-18 season, after the regulation change was approved by The FA Council today [18 May] and following a period of consultation with stakeholders over the past few months.

    Where there is clear and overwhelming evidence to suggest a match official has been deceived by an act of simulation, and as a direct result, the offending player’s team has been awarded a penalty and/or an opposing player has been dismissed, The FA will be able to act retrospectively under its Fast Track system.

    A panel consisting of one ex-match official, one ex-manager and one ex-player will be asked to review all available video footage of the incident independently of one another and then advise The FA as to whether they believe it was an offence of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’. Only in circumstances where the panel are unanimous would The FA charge the individual concerned.

    This process would be similar to the one used now for a red card offence [violent conduct/serious foul play/spitting at an opponent] which was not seen at the time by the match officials but caught on camera. In this situation, three ex-elite match officials review all the available video footage independently of one another and then advise The FA as to whether they believe it was an offence worthy of instant dismissal.

    In accepted and/or proven cases of simulation and/or feigning injury, the offending player would receive a two-match suspension.

    Although attempts to deceive the referee by feigning injury or pretending to have been fouled is a cautionable offence for unsporting behaviour, the fact that the act of simulation has succeeded in deceiving a match official and, therefore, led to a penalty and/or dismissal, justifies a more severe penalty which would act as a deterrent.

    Should a charge of ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’ be admitted or found proven, the Independent Regulatory Commission will have the power to rescind the caution or dismissal received by the opposing player as a result of the simulation if it chooses to do so.

    The Fast Track system for dealing with incidents retrospectively, which was brought in by The FA for the start of the 2004-05 season, enables disciplinary cases to be dealt with prior to the offending player’s next competitive game.

    As long as the panel have some bollocks then it's a great idea and long, long overdue. Those recent ones involving Sane and rashford were appalling. Should also apply to feigning injury-like Barton against that non-league team in the Cup when he pretended to have been smashed on the head.

    if its done correctly it will be a great idea mate. Rashford and Sane was embarrassing

    All good news and an important step forward. It's a pity it didn't include inept performances from officials that we had such as the Forest sending offs and the penalty disallowed which should have been retaken.

    Mind, while they're on, they should get rid of that rule that says an incident can't be reviewed if the ref has already seen it and dealt with it. Obviously there'd have to be a limit as you couldn't review everything but there are times where the ref gave a yellow because he clearly hasn't seen the incident when a red should definitely have been given but that only became apparent once a replay had been looked at.

    Good to see and it needs to come in. Been getting worse and worse.

    I saw Fat Sam was complaining about it, saying there was no need and should just be checked on the replay by 4th official.

    It´s a step in the right direction but it won´t alter a result being decided by a player cheating. Get video in and make the decision at the time it happens.

    Hopefully you are correct and hopefully this will be the next step taken with managers in the dugout having some sort of reasonable say to point out when it is required.
