Instead of each club using their own medical team who are in the act why not use neutral medical staff. Plain

LaughEven a Liverpool player might feel a tad embarrassed faking a head injury if he was to be attended by St.Johns Ambulance

Taser them or whatever time they are down for they must remain off the field after regaining there feet.

I'd advocate that other than a serious head injury no player should be treated on the pitch.
99% of genuine injuries are just knocks that need a minute or two to run off.
The medical team are not wizards that can make a man walk again.

So I'd say that for anything other than a head injury a player needing treatment on the pitch must stay off for 10 minutes or be subbed.

If a player can walk off he can do so for treatment and can come back on as soon as ready or can stay on the pitch to walk it off himself.

The player has to be the one to ask for treatment as it means his removal for a period so neither referee nor opposition can stop the game .

Head injury would be defined as a clash of heads not this thing where Rashford goes down clutching his face because a defender jumped with him thing that he does.

I can guarantee 90% of play acting would stop.

So it's the last 10 minutes of the CL final with Utd clinging on to a lead under pressure and Varane gets slashed by studs resulting in a huge gash down his leg, pouring blood. What does he do? Call the physio on to wrap it up knowing his game's over and Utd have to carry on with ten men or does he just carry on losing blood?

Somehow we just need some retrospective ability to find and punish cheating.

Players get injured and it's a bit daft to penalise genuine injuries because of a few cheats. You'll literally end up with players much worse off because they try to run it off when a physio could have diagnosed a problem.

This is the problem players are receiving a tap on the shoulder and falling to the ground holding their face then pretending to check for blood. I think they would feel a little bit stupid if a stranger(neutral) ran onto the pitch to check if the were ok rather one of their colleagues/mates.

Holding your head/face when you haven't been struck there - red card via VAR with no stoppage for review
Overreacting to a challenge like you've been shot - yellow card via VAR with no stoppage for review or blue card if introduced
Putting the ball out of play for injured teammate or opponent - yellow or blue card - only the ref can stop the game for head or serious injury, play continues otherwise.

That would stop a lot of it.

They've lost sight that it's a sport.

Faking an injury is unsporting behaviour, it is cheating. It should be treated as cheating with red cards or match bans.

It would change the game if a "sporting" ethos was introduced and cheating was clamped down on.
Report Steve Voltage March 3, 2024 2:47 PM GMT
Difficult to determine what is cheating and what is not.

It’s too easy for them at the moment to hit the deck then have one of their buddies come over to see if he’s ok. Remove the buddie and replace with a neutral.

I'm glad we didn't have to wait for Tom LocKyer to ask for treatment or he'd be dead!!!

General idea of what your saying does make a fair bit of sense though...
