  1. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    Varied opinions on this thread re the BW case. Only he knows if he was caught out. However, I reckon most of us would like to see obvious cases of simulation earn a suspension. It would be interesting to have a "watch" on future cases brought by the FA. Will have to involve penalty/red card, their rule, rather than all instances of trying to deceive aka a "Maddison". Then we'll see how BW, & indeed Miller, compare & whether some Prem cases feature. ps As someone said earlier, Bailey's hectic travel schedule for his country wouldn't have been the best prep for Saturday & we did manage to beat Cardiff without him. Three more points Saturday would be good on top of Oz qualifying for Russia.
  2. Reminiscent of the Open Top Bus Tour around Horfield surely
  3. Well deserved Steve & thanks a million (or multiple millions). Did the Gas take 1000s to jeer? All locked out (of the Palace) as usual.

    Total nonsense the Miller case. Fail to see how they deemed it simulation. I'm sure the FA has woken up to their new initiative & decided they must find some cases. They'd have more credibility, if they want to punish simulation, if they looked at all cases of players trying to deceive & began handing out retrospective bans even when the ref has issued a yellow card, eg Maddison. Huge workload for them but if they're serious. I'd be 100% in favour of an honest initiative such as that.

    Looks to me that BW does put his left arm out to break the fall & lands on it. Ok, thereafter he holds his face. Is that an attempt to deceive or pain? Not a conclusive case for me & maybe not even one that meets balance of probabilities.
  6. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    Yes, occurred to me, reading the FA decision, that the red card was overturned first & that decision was amongst the info considered by the panel re BW's actions. The overturn was possibly decided by a Regulatory officer? There is a name quoted. Have read the decision several times & think I've got it right. So, I agree with ooRya. Doesn't seem a very transparent process.

    Said this before, I find it strange that it took from the start of the season until mid October for the first ban, Miller, that was closely followed by Wright. It will be interesting to see how many more follow in Nov, Dec. Did someone at the FA suddenly remember their new initiative? On the subject of simulation could the Gas be brought to book for it? Is the Tent Stand a clear case of pretending to be a proper job? Then there's Santa's Grotto & more. The FA may need to convene several panels.

    It does appear from the FA document that the decision that Kamara had been wrongfully dismissed was arrived at first. If that is the case it seems unlikely they would then find Wright not guilty of simulation.
  9. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    Maybe Bailey should have said he was holding his face because of the pain he suffered in his neck etc having been pushed over by Kamara. The FA has admitted that it was a foul but seem to rely on the issue of Bailey holding his face but not stating why he did that.

    I note the full reasoning of the panel will be given to the club some time this coming week. Wonder if it will be kept confidential. All those ITK be alert & ready.
  11. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    Exactly Es, it does, but I'm wondering if Fulham supplied a different video to the FA to support their man. Maybe a steward took it with his phone!
  12. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    Well done Es MB for posting the Guardian article. The FA rule re referral to the "simulation panel" seems to hinge on there clearly being no contact. So re BW's case they must have seen video that shows Kamara didn't actually touch Wright to be able to ban him for simulation. Assume the club will demand to see that video, too. If it exists then BW deserves the ban.
  13. Thank you Brentford

    GAS high up that list, mind. Could argue they are coming for us.
  14. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    Couldn't agree more about video tech for such incidents as per so many other sports. Instead the FA look at it in secret & stir up the sort of debate we're now having because some of us feel BW has been victimised, others feel we should accept the ruling even though other clubs/players may get away with cheating. Total mess the governing body has made of this. NickJ suggests City highlight other instances that may have gone unpunished, if I read him right (apologies if not), but it's not our place to do that & it would make us rather unpopular. Needs all clubs to make a stand, as one, on this.
  15. Bailey Wright - Suspended for 2 matches

    Think you're right China. The initiative will disappear, eventually. Seems the FA has backed itself into a corner here as opposed to other rules re ref's decisions. Also find it odd that the rule came in for this season, August, but they didn't "prosecute" until October & even that was a very doubtful case - Miller. Did they not find any worthy incidents Aug, Sept? Guess we'll never know.
