F.A. Need To Draw The Line

F.A. Need To Draw The Line

So, for the tackle that never was, there seems to have been a lot of fall out.

Today brought more after effects with referee, Mark Halsey, being demoted refereeing duties down a couple of divisions for the forthcoming league one fixture list at the weekend.

Already we've seen both Newcastle and Wigan coaches, John Carver and Graham Barrow charged with improper conduct. The outcome undecided as such but you can guarantee that it will be more than a smacked wrist.

Mark Halsey actually dealt with the coaches handbags on the touchline but still the FA acted.

Ill feeling still surrounds the lack of protection that our player, Massidio Haidara got in that game, intentional foul or not.

The catalyst that lit the flame, unseen by every official until the FA decided that an assistant did see it after all but their hands were tied due to some lie of a rule to protect them.

The proper action to take in all this would have been to warn everyone involved that they overstepped the mark and see what we can learn out of this but no, the FA decide to demote a ref who said he couldn't see the incident properly with TV camera's seemingly backing this claim up.

Probably demoting the linesmen as well but in the meantime the tackle that every kid in the school yard will have seen has been brushed under the carpet.

A corrupt organisation who are clueless at best.
