Just saw Graham Poll on Setanta's Football Matters show and here is the story.

Based on a FIFA regulation, the FA would send a video of the incident to the official in question and ask 'did you see this?'. If the official admits to have seen it and did nothing by way of punishment at the time, the FA must stand by that ruling. Apparently FIFA is somewhat against meting out punishment after the fact or 're-refereeing' games.

Silly, but apparently true.

I thought that if the ref had said he had seen it they couldn't do anything about it.

But, whatever the rules it's ridiculous. Just think SWP got banned for his kick-out, which wasn't as bad. :rolleyes:

they literally pretended they didnt see it cos they prob knew at that stage that Lampard should never have been sent off...

Ridiculous in any case!

If it was Rooney, the tabloids would be talking about jail time. Typical, any team but United and f**k all is done.

Didn't Evra get suspended for a non-event a few months back/ Ridiculous :rolleyes:
