Keri-Ann Moxom Twitter Rant Sanction

Recommended Posts

I have put this topic in this section of the forum and also the Sunday League section. Nice to see this sort of thing is being dealt with. What are people's thoughts on the sanction though?

A one match ban is equivalent to a red card. Not good but not a big deal surely on the scale of things. The answer of course is not to twitter !

If the player is as good as the account says, she should forget the matter, serve her ban and then get stuck in to playing her football again. Obviously a talent we don't want to lose from the game. Forget it Keri Ann, apply yourself to the sport you love and - stop ranting on social twitter.

Nothing wrong with tweeting - just have some self-control!

The article and action by the FA Dave, proves that there is a lesson for all players to learn here. 

Having a go at match officials on the pitch must be stamped out. Having a go on twitter is, the FA have decided, no different. Do we want abuse of officials stamped out, or not.

Of course we should do, but all I'm saying is that players (and in a couple of situations clubs too) should learn to tweet without making a direct attack on personnel.

Yes I'm with you Dave. My worry is, that some people will find 'learning' more difficult than others. Better that those folk don't twitter.

The FA are clamping down massively on comments made on social media; since October alone I know of two people that have made comments on the Trelawny League Facebook page who have been charged by the FA for their comments.

Whilst everyone is free to voice their opinion, we must be aware that those opinions can and will be seen by many, many people. Just because someone hasn't registered to this forum, like your page on Facebook or follow you on twitter doesn't mean that they can't and won't see it.

Personally, I am glad that these guys and girls are being disciplined for their words and actions. Most of the time, they are unwarranted and can really affect the people that they are aimed at.

It was also a point that was made by many at the Respect & Behaviour meetings: Deal with conduct on social media.

I personally feel as though she should've been banned for longer. This sort of punishment I don't think will help players learn from their actions. But it's a start and surely we are going in the right direction to deal with these actions from players.

And such language from a Lay-dee! In the good old days I remember Sally Rogers collecting our side's first ever booking - for ungentlemanly conduct. That was in the 70s. She, nor any other female footballer I encountered back then, objected to that wording. They used to shout "man on" to warn a team mate without any embarrassment. Then, of course, the PC brigade took over leading, I believe, to a change in the wording of that "ungentlemanly conduct" rule!
