WEXFORD G.A.A. have backed a proposal to change the rule regarding players carrying bookings into extra-time of drawn games.
Currently, if a player is sent-off at any stage in normal time for a second booking, his team will still be allowed back on the field at the start of extratime with 15 players as red cards do not carry over.
Yet, if a player is booked in normal time that does apply so if he gets a second yellow during the extra periods then he is sent-off.
The motion from Monageer-Boolavogue club states: ' A caution (yellow card) issued in normal time shall not carry over into extra-time'.
The entire card issue is in the news at the moment following one of the recommendations of the Football Review Committee whose deliberations have met with a mixed reaction from followers of the sport.
They have suggested that a player who is yellowcarded should not be allowed to finish out the game and should be replaced by a colleague, up to a limit of three.
In other words, the fourth yellow card would see a team reduced to 14 players and so on.
It seems an excessively harsh penalty for what might be a simple mistimed tackle, and it is unlikely to survive any trial period.
