In too many matches red cards are given incorrectly, and this decision then goes on to determine, or at least influence, the winner of the match. Frustrated fans often see the truth on video-replays, whilst the field-referees, must enforce their original, incorrect decision.
In too many matches, incorrect penalty kicks are awarded, that often end up deciding the outcome of the match. Referee errors occur, and sadly, they have occurred too often inside the 16-meter box. Having to witness your team lose, because an incorrect penalty is given to the opposing team, should no longer be accepted.
Exagerating an injury in order to influence the referee, and their decision, is widespread in football. Often, this leads to incorrect referee decisions and wrong bookings. Also common is "Time-wasting"; attempting to stop or slow down play, in order to try to secure a win or an unfair advantage. Often these "Time-wasting" activities happen via players exaggerating or "faking" an injury. It’s time fair-play and sportsmanship are actually enforced in the sport.
The practice of players "diving" for fouls is too present in football. Done by players in an attempt to influence the referee, to get a foul in their teams favour, or simply put, to get an un-just advantage. Most football fans have needed to accept their team losing at least once, because of an incorrect penalty being given, due to "diving". The same is true for incorrect red-cards and free-kicks, as a result of "diving".
The field-referee blows the whistle as normal for a red-card situation, but signals that the final decision will go to the video-referee. Video-referee then has 2 minutes to review footage; confirming or rejecting the red-card. Then, video-referee relays their decision to field-referee via head-set; either red-card is given, or no booking is given. Play resumes as normal.
The field-referee blows the whistle as normal for a penalty-situation, but signals that the final decision will go to the video-referee. Video-referee then has 2 minutes to review footage; confirming or rejecting the penalty. Then, video-referee relays their decision to field-referee via head-set; either penalty is taken, or goal-kick is taken. Both scenarios continue as usaul.
Any 'injured' player who stops play, is moved to sideline for treatment. Player can then be substituted immediately. Otherwise, player is removed from play for minimum of 4 minutes. After 4 min, player can re-join or be substituted. During these 4 minutes, play resumes as normal.
Rule already exists, but needs to be enforced.
Video-referees have 40 min after game to award 'diving-bookings'. Bookings are carried forward to next match.
