"Stop the game, ref, it's a head knock"


Den Spark

Recommended Posts

At the Hamilton game, an Accies player mysteriously goes down in their penalty box just as Dundee are attacking (not that we were going to score anyway). Ref stops play, player gets up and play resumes with a drop ball which Accies 'sportingly' give back to the Dundee goalkeeper, thus negating any threat to their goal.

At the Lochee Utd v Carnoustie game on Saturday a Carnoustie defender goes down in the box at a Lochee corner kick. Ref summons physio on to treat the stricken player but physio suddenly develops arthritis and can't get his a**e off the bench. Physio eventually surfaces from dugout and ambles along touchline, taking care not to actually step onto the pitch. Meanwhile, said defender has now recovered and Carnoustie are able to defend the corner with 11 men instead of 10.

It might have come back to bite them at the end, though, because Lochee scored a late winner when yet another 'snootie defender was down injured. Maybe ref felt he had been conned first time and let play go on.

Obviously, head knocks have to be taken seriously, but if a ref decides to stop the game due to injury, that player should have to leave the field for treatment. Might just stop some of the chancers who are 'at it'.

If there is a way to impede opponents off the ball, Hamilton will have found and used it. Horrible sh!tey little club who out performed us.

.....at both the football & the timewasting/faking injury/niggly fouls/etc

As 8utters has mentioned, Hamilton did this 5-6 times & that useless tit of a ref fell for it, every time....even the player who hurt his head rolling over on well-watered grass. At the time, I was thinking we ought to have refused to 'stand aside' from the drop ball, and chosen to contest it (the old-fashioned way). I believe this is still allowable, within the laws.

Re head knocks & other injuries, at the moment the player has to go off after treatment on the pitch, and can only come back on when the ref decides. If you have a genuine injury, this always seem unfair to the team who's short of a player & hands an advantage to the team who committed the foul. Maybe both players should have to go off. I tend to agree re having players treated off the pitch (if they can't safely be moved they're not likely to be playing on), though you end up with the teams with a genuine injury being penalised & refs having to make a decision.

Been saying this for years, especially if there's a foul given against the 'offending' player.

In rugby the trainer is allowed to treat an injured player on the pitch with play going on.Cant see it in football though.Just imagine the Hamilton trainer impeding a player going through on goal and ref..unable to do anything about it.
