Laws On Losing Carlisle Appeal

Laws On Losing Carlisle Appeal

The Club have today lost its appeal against the red card shown to Clarke Carlisle in last Saturday's 1-1 draw at Millwall.

The appeal was rejected by an FA commission, which upheld the decision of referee Keith Stroud.

Carlisle will now serve a three-match ban and will miss our Championship games against Sheffield United, Barnsley and Reading later this month. At least however they didn't enforce an additional match ban which perhaps suggest the club were not totally wrong to challenge the referee's decision.

Brian Laws talking about the decision said:

'We are disappointed with the outcome.

'We felt the decision was harsh but we have to accept the verdict and move on.

'We again showed on Saturday the strength we have within the squad and I know that whoever benefits from Clarke's absence will come in and do a good job for us when we start again after the international break.'

Utter tosh this decision. I don't know why we bother, I really don't! The fact they didn't add the extra match ban says it all and if there was any element of doubt you can bet your bottom dollar the ref will get the benefit. Stuff 'em all

I thought that if you appealed and it got turned down you got an extra game ban ? but it say's on the official web site that Clark will serve a 3 game ban

Totally - I think it is only added if the appeal is seen as one with no substance. Have to agree with TMP though, I can understand ( just) how the ref gave the red card on Saturday - but how this can not be turned over after numerous replays and slow motions, I really dont know!

I don't understand at all why the ref gave a red card instead of just telling Carlisle to calm down with the body contact. I do understand why they supported the ref though, it's something to do with the fact that the refs must always be seen to be right . Totally wrong though because it was an absurd decision as anyone can see. Nothing we can do now, let's move on to the next 3 points.

Sorry to hear that th FA are just as stubburn as FIFA but it comes as no surprise the officials always back their own. Problem is Clark has been in top form and being a confidence player it might affect him when he is back.

I have only seen the tackle on the highlights video and I have to say it seemed a bit of a powder puff challenge. At worst it deserved a yellow. Unfortunately, the FA choose to back the wrong people at the wrong time. Plus, they can't see that an awful decision like that ruined the game as a spectacle.
