Vote: Should points be deducted when players show dissent?
Ian Wright unveils controversial plan to stamp out lippy outbursts
In a week that saw tantrums from Cashley Cole and Javier Mascherano, esteemed Sun journalist Ian Wright has revealed a
ridiculous intriguing plan to bring some respect back into the game. Wrighty believes teams should have points deducted at specific points in the season, based upon the amount of dissent players have shown. He also wants to ban any type of swearing towards match officials (I thought that was already banned?), employ lip readers to study match footage after games (an idea he probably discovered when leafing through Zoo Magazine) and impose a rule that will see only team captains talking to the referee.
Is it just me or is this idea a little bit daft? Perhaps a better solution would be to introduce a straight red card for dissent, with video evidence and lip reading being employed to influence the length of the ban. What do you think? Get voting!
