Another ridiculous, bordering on disgusting, decision from an ever increasingly out of touch elitist minority who couldn’t give a toss about football outside the professional game!
Sitting on the fence eh ajb? 😝

Joking apart, agree with you 100%. Pathetic

Finally...! Something we agree on. Took a while! 😉👏😃

And while on the subject of coins. One thing I have noticed at FL/Championship/Premiership games is that after the coin toss the referee invariably runs across to the 4th Official and hands the coin over to them. Why? Surely that miniscule bit of extra weight can't affect running speed. I always refereed with the coin in my shorts back pocket. I wonder if there is a directive that this practice of handing over the coin is followed or is there some reason I am not understanding ?

It is in the Laws, and it does specify a coin.

Kick off
PROCEDURE
the team that wins the toss of a coin decides which goal it will attack in the first half
their opponents take the kick-off
the team that wins the toss takes the kick-off to start the second half



However the punishment is out of all proportion to the "offence." A case where a slap on the wrist would have been totally appropriate.

To quote @refsupportuk on twitter: They could have said. “As a coin is not compulsory we have advised the team of four about their collective responsibilities and have forward a proposal to IFAB for a Law change to Law 5 in regards to a coin being compulsory “ that fits the crime better.

In my opinion the person or persons who ordered this disgusting and outrageous sanction should indeed be severely sanctioned themselves. If this is correct the game is dead.

Do you not think it’s dead anyway? Take this payment to Scudamore, for example.

I agree that this is grossly out of proportion, but why wouldn't it have been possible to go back, or send someone back, to the dressing room to collect a coin?
In a semi parallel context I recall a conductor at the Proms, I think it was Parvo Berglund in his Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra days, forgetting his baton and returning off stage to collect it amid huge laughter and applause.
As a National North watcher David McNamara seems to me to be one of the best around, I hope this doesn't damage any promotion prospects.

Was he banned from the Proms for three years?

This has nothing do to with proportionality or slightly different precedents.

It is all to do with the FA promoting women's football. If it had happened in a male game there would have been no such action.

In the FA's blinkered eyes anything which could be thought to trivialise women's football is to be dealt with severely!

.and another remembrance. When I was a youth, watching at the front of the terrace at Portman Road, one day the referee came rushing over from the centre circle coin toss to the crowd where I was and said "anyone got a coin? I've left mine in the changing room" Someone obliged. i can't be sure but I believe the referee was Harry New

I did a game yesterday and the skippers asked if they could do rock, paper, scissors.  ;Dl

I was going to suggest this as a suitable response - I hope some do do it.

The embarrassment of this going public should be punishment enough.
