The Jocks may have got something right

SPL refs will now be able to review match tapes and issue cards to those who cheatie dive. I’ve been saying this is needed for some time. It’ll be interesting to see how it works out.

The only downside is if the refs become too dependent on the replays. Say a player dives and the ref is pretty sure it was a dive needing a yellow. Is it possible he doesn’t give the card then and prefer to be 100% certain after watching the tape before booking the player.

Only time will tell. Hopefully this does work and players think twice about cheating to gain an advantage.

  1. Don’t have a link, but I think I read on the wires this am that FIFA nixed the SPL plan…

  2. Yeah, I saw that. Just another strange decision by those that call the shots. The only thing they know how to do well is add to their already rather large bank accounts.
