Making yourself bigger Does the defender use his hand/arm as a barrier? Does the defender use his hand/arm to take away space and/or the passing lane from the opponent? Does the defender use his hand/arm to occupy more space by extending his reach or extending the ability of his body to play the ball thereby benefiting from the extension(s)? 2. Is the arm or hand in an “unnatural position?” Is the arm or hand in a position that is not normal or natural for a player performing the task at hand. 3. Did the player “benefit?” Did the player benefit by putting his hand/arm in an “unnatural position?” 4. Reaction Time 5. Hand / arm to ball Dissent: By Word and Action What is Dissent? The Laws of the Game (Law 12 – Fouls and Misconduct) identifies “dissent by word or action” as one of the seven cautionable offenses. Although each referee must determine how to implement the Law based on the manner in which dissent is exhibited throughout a game and from game to game, the fundamentals of what is dissent and why dissent must be managed do not change. Dissent consists of language (both verbal and nonverbal) which disputes an official’s decision. Dissent must be managed because it: Erodes the authority of the referee; Reduces the enjoyment of other participants and spectators; and Can spread if left unchecked. Dissent: By Word and Action In deciding, among a range of options, which response will be most effective in managing a player who protests against a decision, the following criteria should be taken into account: Public Personal Provocative Overall, are the comments and actions disrespectful to “any referee” – not just to the referee to whom they were addressed? Officials must be aware of actions/comments that undermine the authority of the referee and must take the appropriate action that corresponds to the actions of the player. In short, the player’s actions might be dissent in all cases but the referee must carefully gauge the most effective response in each specific case. Dissent: By Word and Action Forms of Dissent The following forms of dissent are examples that can be exhibited toward any member of the referee team (referee, assistant referee or fourth official): Actions (verbal and visual) that bring the game into disrepute Actions that make the player’s presence the focus of attention by injecting a negative temperament/attitude toward the referee Actions which convey aggressiveness toward the referee Mass confrontation around an official The use of words, tone, body language, facial expressions which demonstrate a negative, condescending attitude toward an official. The manner in which a player approaches the referee should be considered The extended nature and persistence of the player’s actions make the player’s intent even more obvious including persisting in displaying dissent after having been warned (see below – “The Stop Sign”) Dissent: By Word and Action Forms of Dissent The following forms of dissent are examples that can be exhibited toward any member of the referee team (referee, assistant referee or fourth official): Waving hands at an official, kicking balls away, charging toward an official, invading an official’s body space, aggressively following an official around, physically moving toward an official, players having to be restrained from moving toward/at an official, players having to physically remove the player from the area around an official Strong and excessively loud comments, directed at an official, that can be heard by other players and spectators Gestures, non-offensive in nature, that are directed at an official and have been observed by spectators that show disgust over a decision or disrespect Ask yourself: “Is this a quick emotional outburst or dissent?” If it is an “outburst,” consider alternative methods of addressing the behavior. If it is dissent, then the referee must caution the player. Dissent: By Word and Action Common Sense Approach Early Action and Messages The “Stop Sign” Dissent: By Word and Action Law 12 provides directly for a player to be sent off if the player is guilty of “using offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures.” Dissent and the use of offensive language are two different things, though they may occur together, and accordingly must be kept separate in deciding what action to take. Offensive, Insulting or Abusive Language and/or Gestures Physical Contact with an Official Any player who makes deliberate physical contact with an official in order to dispute a decision, must be sent off for violent conduct. The referee should not tolerate physical contact by a player (including a substitute, substituted player, or any other person under the authority of the referee) which: Involves force or aggression (grabbing, pushing, slapping, bumping, stepping on feet, etc.) The official has sought to avoid by moving away and by making a gesture which clearly indicates any further approach is unwelcome (continued pursuit by a player, if performed in a threatening manner, is included here even if physical contact does not result) Is initiated from an unexpected direction and unaccompanied by any warning Is delivered in a context which clearly includes disapproval, lack of friendliness, or anger Restrains or prevents an official from withdrawing from the contact (e.g., by blocking retreat or holding) Substitutions MVU (Competition D1&3 [CCSL]) - No Change - Own Throw-in (team in possession) - Goal Kick (either team) - Kick-off (either team) - Injury Stoppage (either team) - Half time - When the referee has stopped play to caution a player, only the cautioned player may be substituted House (Recreation D4) - Same as above, except: - Throw-in -Non-possession team can substitute if the team with possession makes a substitution and -Substitutes are at the half-way line, prior to the ball out of play Substitutions MVU (Competition D1&3 [NorCal/NorCal State Cup]) - Throw-in (either team) - Goal Kick (either team) - Kick-off (either team) - Injury Stoppage / Yellow Card (either team) - Half time (either team) Send-Off CCSL - The referee shall, within twenty-four (24) hours of the match, send a copy of the match report, member pass, and CYSA Send-Off Report detailing the incident to the appropriate Disciplinary Chair.
