Probation

As part of any given D&P ruling, a period of probation may be given along with or independent of a player suspension. To clarify the concept of Probation, the following definition shall be used:

Definition: When a player receives a period of probation as part of a sanction, then if that player receives a yellow or red card for any reason during the period of probation, then that player is suspended for the entire period of probation starting with the next match no matter when the booking occurs.

For example, assume Player X receives a period of probation of five matches. If Player X then receives a booking for any reason over the next five matches (even if the booking occurs at the 90th minute of the last match of the period of probation), then Player X is automatically suspended for the next five matches. The suspension starts on its own without any further ruling or action by the D&P Committee, Board, or other person.

If the booking received during the period of probation is for an illegal substitution, for an illegal handing of the ball, or for a similar non-violent, non-aggressive or non-abusive violation of the Laws of the Game, then automatic suspension is still in place, but the suspended player may then go before the D&P Committee and then ask the D&P Committee to reinstate the period of probation. There is no guarantee that the D&P Committee will reinstate the probation under such circumstances or any other circumstances

I. If a player receives a red card for any reason on a Sunday (during the match, before the match or after the match), then the red card match report will be sent to the D&P Committee.

II. You must review the match report (which will sent electronically) to determine what the match official reported about the red card.

III. You have until 11:59 p.m. on the Thursday following the Sunday (when the red card was issued) either (a) to request an oral live hearing or (b) to submit whatever evidence electronically that you want the D&P Committee to consider.

IV. If there is no request for an oral live hearing, by the following Thursday, the D&P Committee will announce its decision.

V. If there is no request for an oral live hearing, by the next Monday, the player must appeal any decision to the Board under the normal procedures and bond. The Board will consider the appeal at the next League or Board meeting. The Board’s jurisdiction remains limited as provided in the Bylaws.
