LISTEN TO FOOTBALL QUEENSLAND STATE REFEREE MANAGER DAVID WIEBE DISCUSS THE NEWLY IMPLEMENTED 'SIN-BIN' RULE
Football Queensland State Referees Manager David Wiebe discussed the newly implemented ‘sin bin’ rule in the Queensland community leagues this morning on Calcio Café.
The ‘sin bin’ will only be enforced for dissent towards the referee and will act as an alternative to the player being carded.
Players will be sin binned for ten minutes for matches greater than 60 minutes in duration, while players will be sin binned for five minutes if the duration of the match is under 60 minutes.
The sin bin has been trialled in UK with Football Queensland taking it on board in the 2018 season for its non NPL leagues.
“It gives the players extra time to calm down as opposed to being yellow carded for dissent,” Wiebe said.
