RUFC - Handshakes All Round?

RUFC - Handshakes All Round?

Having a break from deciding how many points should be deducted from the 'little teams' the Football League have joined with the FA in a respect campaign.

The aim is to improve behaviour both on and around the pitch as well as having greater respect for match officials and will consist of players shaking hands before each game. This will be part of every first team pre-match ceremony which includes the Football League, FA Cup, League Cup and Johnstone's Paint Trophy and teams will line up in front of the Main Stand to carry out this procedure the Football League's Official Site says.

The respect campaign, which has the backing of the Football League, Premier League, Football Conference, the PFA and LMA, will begin on 9 August.

What rot isn't it. you can see the handshakes being done by players who don't like each other and ten minutes later kicking spots of their opponent. Won't make a bit of difference. MORE American rubbish.
