GAA Discussion / Idea to Improve Football
« on: March 28, 2012, 12:58:02 PM »
Just something I've been thinking of lately ....
Why don't the GAA introduce a rule whereby any player seen to commit a third man tackle should automatically be given a yellow card, irrespective of the circumstances?

For me, the lenient treatment of third man tackles is one of the main reasons why football is a less attractive game to watch than it used to be.  Removing this from the game would significantly improve the pace of the game and should return the free flowing nature of gaelic football which has been lost recent years. 

In the absence of any official rule to prevent mass defences, extra defenders etc. I believe automatic yellow cards for third man tackles is the single easiest way that we can improve the "modern" game, and I can't see any reason why it shouldn't be introduced.

It's something that would be easy to understand for players, mentors and spectators, and easy to judge for referees/linesmen/umpires.

What do you think?
