The following email was sent to me recently from a good friend; as such it is of course quite fitting to be published on Vital Exeter...
Clubs Back Grecian Sportsmanship Proposals
At their Summer Conference, Football League clubs have voted unanimously to support proposals aimed at encouraging sportsmanship and curbing gamesmanship in matches.
The proposals, which were put forward by Exeter City Chairman, Edward Chorlton, have three central themes:
1. Gamesmanship has no place in our game. Football League matches should be played within a culture of sportsmanship not gamesmanship.
2. Clubs will undertake to instruct managers, coaches and players accordingly - in particular to discourage actions which bring the game's reputation into disrepute, such as:
a) showing disrespect to match officials; and/or
b) those actions that undermine a sporting culture including diving/simulation, time wasting and feigning injury.
3. In the first year of this initiative, The League will request that referees support this initiative by taking more robust action, particularly in the following situations:
a) obstructing the quick taking of free-kicks
b) stealing ground at throw-ins.
Football League Chairman Greg Clarke said: "As a collective of clubs we have a responsibility to protect the image and long term health of the game of football.
"In supporting these proposals, League clubs have shown a determination to give a lead in this important area.
"We will now use them as a platform from which to engage with those parties that can help us change our game for the better."
This does sounds good doesn't it?
