Mckimms red card

Recommended Posts

I would have hoped we did appeal but i havent heard anything to saywe have. It was an awful decision to send him off and the video evidence is conclusively against the ref in this case!! He shouldnt face a ban!

Red cards are very rarely rescinded and unless the video evidence shows McKimm made no contact at all then it is not conclusively against the ref. ( even if no contact was made the ref can still say he was sent off for intent )

How many "unfair" red cards did we get last year and in how many of those cases did we win an appeal?

You ask, In how many cases did we win an appeal? As far as I know, we only appealed against 1(Benno's , I believe) red card last year and werent succesful.Dont believe we tried to get any other card rescinded ? So, I agree it was 100% failure rate but based on 1 case, its not a very good sample, to say the least !!

When do the automatic bans take effect? Also (and I'm trusting my memory here which is dodgey) I think the Reporter stated O'Reilly has a one match ban but the other two have three match bans. I thought a straight red was a straight red. Or did I read it wrong...

Actually we didn't appeal. Having seen the video we decided that it was not sufficiently clear to warrent the £250 cost of the appeal. The only card we appealed against, was Bentley's and in this case, the referee told Andy and Roly that he had sent Benno off for use of the elbow, but in his report he changed it to dangerous use of the arm so the rather scuppered the appeal on the grounds that there was no contact with the elbow.

Apparently the Leigh manager is thinking of appealing against their first sending off, of Maden.

If he wants to blow £250, he could just buy me a nice Christmas present or something.
