How Football Works

"Chelsea defender Ashley Cole said: "With my booking, I said to him, 'I'm more than 10 yards. Why should I go back if I am more than 10 yards?'

"And he said, 'Because I said so.' I said, 'But I' m more than 10 yards', and that was it. Yellow card. No warning or explanation. "

---------------------------

Please could somebody point Mr Cole in the direction of the Law pertaining to cautions, specifically the paragraph on "dissent", and also to the actions of England's rugby players when a try was wrongly disallowed on Sunday.

I think Cole has a point to be honest, if he is more than 10 yards then why should he move back?
There would have been no call for Dissent if Poll hadn't been an arse and told him to move back when he was already 10 yards back.

Don't try and compare football with rugby.

I thought the ref decided whether he was back 10 yards or not, rather than the player?

re: How Football Works

Poll didn't say to Cole .. because i said your not back 10 yards ,he said because i said so.

That says to me he is just being very picky and making him move back further than the law states he should be?

Exactly, since when can a player dictate to a referee.

Cole and Poll are both bellends.

re: How Football Works

You are of course basing that on Ashley Cole's version of events being completely truthful........

I prefer to trust the ref's, Tash.

re: How Football Works

Who's 10 yards is it, Ashley Coles or the man who is running the game. Footballers feel they have a right to give the the ref shoite because THEY feel they are in the right, if they know all the rules throw the whistle at them and say get on with it. I have seen it in Rugby and the gobshoite soon backs down. Too much dissent in the game especially when the managers whing about it as well. Sounds like a reallity programme script to me.

re: How Football Works

Obviously a player can't dictate to a referee, but why if he was 10 yards back, did he need to move back further?

The referees word is final, like it or lump it.

I think i know that more than most people on the board

re: How Football Works

Is it too much for the player to ask the ref if he is happy with the ten or is that beyound their bank balance.

re: How Football Works

Because in the ref's opinion, he wasn't back far enough.

re: How Football Works

Some refs in the premiership really get on my tits, they do things to get them noticed, be picky to get on television.

re: How Football Works

On the pitch the ref is the law.
