'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Stop The Cheats

Searching through the Vital Network i stumbled across an article on the Southampton Website that i thought all Rotherham fans might like to read, it is WWW.STOPTHECHEATS.COM.

The aim of this site, is to attempt to make the governing bodies, address the issue, before the game suffers further. With your help we aim to inform FIFA and UEFA that the everyday football supporter has had enough of the cheats spoiling the game. We want them to take action against those players who attempt to cheat by diving or 'play acting` in order to gain an advantage. We want them to do this by using video evidence after the game in order ban players for the offense.

It has become clear in this present World Cup, that many players are still diving, and rolling around like they`ve been shot, only to get up and run off when they 'win` a free-kick. If a player knew, that even if he manages to con the referee on the pitch, he can and will still be punished after the game if he is clearly to be found cheating. This we believe will act as a deterrent, and will once and for all remove this cancer that has crept into our game.'

Check out the website and sign the petition and maybe we can put a stop to cheating for good.

Like it or hate it I think its time for video evidence - maybe that would stop the rolling around the floor like a sack o' tata's when an opposing player comes within 3 yards of them

What about the w**kers who jump upand confront the ref with an imaginary card. They should be sent off for doing that. :(

i would love to see video evidence but the fa will say that it will hold the game up too much but if it was used correctly and instigated right i don't think there would be a problem and FEn i agree with you also

Seems like a great idea, and something that fans should push UEFA and FIFA for.
