Keith B Posted January 21, 2018 Report Share Posted January 21, 2018 What constitutes dissent for which a player can be booked these days - and if it still exists, why don't referees book players for it ? Watching football on the TV this weekend, the latest being the Southampton v Spurs match, the number of times a player raged at the referee were countless. Surely if a player runs up to the referee and mouths very clearly for all to see - ''you must be f- - -in jokin ref'', with a snarl on his face and gesticulating with his hands and arms - that must be dissent ! ? At times this outburst is ended by the player with a clear dismissive wave of his hand, indicating clearly that he has no respect for the ref at all. Does the offence still exist and if so, why is it not acted upon by the referee ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
