15th FebCategory D Red Cards and Dissent

There have recently been two instances where our members have issued red cards for a second, repeat offence of Dissent and have subsequently reported this as a Category D offence (Two separate, but duplicate, minor offences for which a yellow card was awarded for the first offence.)

Please note that under the Red Card & MMO Regulations, Dissent is not considered (quite rightly) to be a minor offence. It therefore follows that in a game, if a player who has already received a yellow card for dissent should repeat the offence such that a second yellow card would be awarded, the player should be shown a Red Card and the offence should be reported as a Category A Offence on the Red Card Report Form.

27th Nov (2017)Confirmation of match details to Watchers

If a watcher has been appointed to a match that you are involved with, it is common courtesy, notwithstanding the details shown on the website, for you to make contact with the watcher to confirm the time and venue of the match.

The usual protocol is for the first named umpire to take responsibility for confirming details. However, if you find you are paired with somebody who is first named but who isn’t a Panel Umpire (e.g. Guest, Candidate, Exchange Visitor etc.) then please take on the responsibility yourself.

11th Nov (2016)Clarification on Red Cards awarded for dissent

In the last fortnight there have been two instances where our members have issued Red Cards for dissent and have reported them as Category D Offences (two separate, but duplicate minor offences for which a yellow card was awarded for the first offence).

Please would everybody note that under Para 6.3 of EH Discipline Regulations, dissent is not a minor offence. It therefore follows that if a player has received a yellow card for dissent, a second offence of this nature will attract a Red Card which should be reported as a Category A Offence (Physical violence was not used, attempted or threatened).
