Red cards or red faces? LETTERS.

I HARDLY ever watch football, but it is my perception that the players are a lot of whingers who dispute the referee's decisions all the time. This upsets me, and one or two of my friends feel the same.

It is about time the FA followed the BHA's lead and made any questioning of an official a mandatory red-card offence, followed by a five-match suspension.

A repeat offence within 12 months would earn a ten-match suspension, with the club forbidden to pay them.

Maybe some of the more volatile players would not play for most of the season and it would probably ruin the game to a certain extent but, as I hardly ever watch it, that does not matter much to me. The important thing would be that the FA had responded to perceived public opinion.
