  1. No sending offs on any of the reports I read Mr Elder. Only Blazey down to ten due to an injury. Maybe it’s you who should do your research?
  2. A bit of advice

    Correct, page 18 of the league rules apologies for not including link. LOTG is very sorry for any confusion.
  3. A bit of advice

    Rule 10f for those of you too lazy too look it up. Signed LOTG f. i. Home and away matches shall be played. In the event of a Club failing to keep its engagement the Management Committee shall have power to inflict a fine, deduct points from the defaulting Club, award the points from the match in question to the opponents, order the defaulting Club to pay any expenses incurred by the opponents or otherwise deal with them except the award of goals. Notwithstanding the foregoing home and away provision, the Management Committee shall have power to order a match to be played on a neutral ground or on the opponent's ground if they are satisfied that such action is warranted by the circumstances. ii. Any Club with more than one team in the Competition shall always fulfil its league and cup fixtures within the Competition, in the following order of precedence: - First Team; Reserve Team, and A Team. iii. Any Club unable to fulfil a fixture or where a fixture has been postponed for any reason must, without delay, give notice to the Fixtures Secretary, the Result Secretary, the Competition Referees Appointments Secretary, the Secretary of the opposing Club and the match officials. Any Club failing to comply shall be dealt with by the Management Committee who may inflict a fine. Notes. 1. Clubs giving more than 7 days’ notice that they are unable to fulfil a fixture shall provide written reasons to the Competition justifying the inability to fulfil the fixture. Only in exceptional and substantiated circumstances will permission to postpone the fixture be granted. Should permission to postpone a fixture not be granted and the game still does not take place the penalties as for Note 2 below shall be applied in accordance with the Fines Tariff. 2. Clubs giving less than 7 days’ notice that they are unable to fulfil a fixture shall forfeit the match to their opponents and be otherwise penalised in accordance with the fines tariff. Should neither club be able to fulfil the fixture it shall be declared void and the penalties in the Fines Tariff shall be applied to both teams.
  4. Must have been for Dissent not Foul and Abusing language as that is a sending off offence. CAUTIONABLE OFFENCES A player is cautioned if guilty of: delaying the restart of play dissent by word or action entering, re-entering or deliberately leaving the field of play without the referee’s permission failing to respect the required distance when play is restarted with a corner kick, free kick or throw-in persistent offences (no specific number or pattern of offences constitutes “persistent”) unsporting behaviour SENDING-OFF OFFENCES A player, substitute or substituted player who commits any of the following offences is sent off: denying the opposing team a goal or an obvious goal-scoring opportunity by deliberately handling the ball (except a goalkeeper within their penalty area) denying a goal or an obvious goal-scoring opportunity to an opponent whose overall movement is towards the offender’s goal by an offence punishable by a free kick (unless as outlined below) serious foul play spitting at an opponent or any other person violent conduct using offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures receiving a second caution in the same match
  5. Questions on LOAF

    Laws of the Game by name, Laws of the Game by nature (my bible)
  6. Questions on LOAF

    Only when the ball is back in play. INJURIES allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured stops play if a player is seriously injured and ensures that the player is removed from the field of play. An injured player may not be treated on the field of play and may only re-enter after play has restarted; if the ball is in play, re-entry must be from the touchline but if the ball is out of play, it may be from any boundary line.
  7. Questions on LOAF

    @bighairydave is correct @Fanfare INJURIES allows play to continue until the ball is out of play if a player is only slightly injured stops play if a player is seriously injured and ensures that the player is removed from the field of play. An injured player may not be treated on the field of play and may only re-enter after play has restarted; if the ball is in play, re-entry must be from the touchline but if the ball is out of play, it may be from any boundary line. Exceptions to the requirement to leave the field of play are only when: a goalkeeper is injured a goalkeeper and an outfield player have collided and need attention players from the same team have collided and need attention a severe injury has occurred a player is injured as the result of a physical offence for which the opponent is cautioned or sent off (e.g. reckless or serious foul challenge), if the assessment/treatment is completed quickly
  8. In this case it is more black and white. If deliberate then penalty and red, if not deliberate then play on! Enjoy your tea!
  9. But the most common sense decision (as it was accidental) is to not give it and play on!
  10. Only if a definite play at the ball (tackle). DENYING A GOAL OR AN OBVIOUS GOAL-SCORING OPPORTUNITY Where a player denies the opposing team a goal or an obvious goal-scoring opportunity by a deliberate handball offence the player is sent off wherever the offence occurs. Where a player commits an offence against an opponent within their own penalty area which denies an opponent an obvious goal-scoring opportunity and the referee awards a penalty kick, the offender is cautioned if the offence was an attempt to play the ball; in all other circumstances (e.g. holding, pulling, pushing, no possibility to play the ball etc.) the offending player must be sent off. A player, sent off player, substitute or substituted player who enters the field of play without the required referee’s permission and interferes with play or an opponent and denies the opposing team a goal or an obvious goal-scoring opportunity is guilty of a sending-off offence.
  11. Maybe the most common sense decision would have been to play on then as it wasn’t deliberate. Unfortunately we have to referee within the laws with things which are there in black and white. I do agree though that common sense plays a big part in refereeing but that is for laws which have some sort of interpretation which in this case shouldn’t happen.
  12. You are entitled to that opinion. But if another referee next week correctly sends the player off then you shouldn’t bemoan them and say last weeks referee didn’t do that because this weeks referee is correct. If you were Ludgvan and with the sending off may have won the game would you be so calm?
  13. Which is my point. If the referee thought it wasn’t deliberate hand ball then it should be play on. A direct free kick is awarded if a player commits any of the following offences: handles the ball deliberately (except for the goalkeeper within their penalty area) HANDLING THE BALL Handling the ball involves a deliberate act of a player making contact with the ball with the hand or arm. The following must be considered: the movement of the hand towards the ball (not the ball towards the hand) the distance between the opponent and the ball (unexpected ball) the position of the hand does not necessarily mean that there is an offence touching the ball with an object held in the hand (clothing, shinguard, etc.) is an offence hitting the ball with a thrown object (boot, shinguard, etc.) is an offence The goalkeeper has the same restrictions on handling the ball as any other player outside the penalty area. Inside their penalty area, the goalkeeper cannot be guilty of a handling offence incurring a direct free kick or any related sanction but can be guilty of handling offences that incur an indirect free kick. Handball is the only offence in the LOTG which requires some deliberate act to be penalised. A foul is a foul whether deliberate or not, the more deliberate the more likely the offence will be dealt with more seriously (with a yellow/red card)
  14. Then it shouldn’t have been penalised at all. Handball is only penalised if deliberate. If not then play on!
  15. You mean incorrectly. If deliberate then Law 12 states: SENDING-OFF OFFENCES A player, substitute or substituted player who commits any of the following offences is sent off: denying the opposing team a goal or an obvious goal-scoring opportunity by deliberately handling the ball (except a goalkeeper within their penalty area) Another referee making up his own laws and making it harder for the rest who apply them correctly.
