The FA

A time-saving method of condemnation


December 28, 1895
Scottish football authorities, discussing the recent resolution of the English Association which suspends for at least a month any player who may be ordered off the field, regard it as a pernicious principle, condemning a player without being heard. Only in case referees were infallible, or players sinned in one way and to the same extent, could our friends across the border be inclined to look favourably upon this automatic time-saving method of condemnation.
