Over the last few years, we have seen an increasing number of incidents of simulation within football. As per the BBC, “last season [2012-13], 34 yellow cards were shown for simulation in the Premier League, up 14 on the previous season’s total and the highest recorded over the previous four years.” With the recent introduction of retrospective action for acts of violent conduct that have gone unseen by the referee, why are we not able to introduce similar such action against simulation?
This is a solution that is supported by both supporters and people in the game; none other than David Moyes, who said “I have said for many years that we should have retrospective video action against diving,” Moyes said. “That would help referees no end. My views haven’t changed from when I was at Everton to when I was at Manchester United.”
We believe that with enough support, we can bring this issue to the attention of the Football Association of England with the aim of hopefully removing simulation from the game of football.
My son has been red carded unjustly and was accused to have cursed on the field.
Now he cannot play and cannot even be at the the field as a spectator to support his teammates.
While the Topps Co. has the longest standing, and most storied history in Sports Card Collecting, their recent acquisition of an "Exclusive MLB Licence" has really steered the baseball card to a turn for the worse.
In the past few years, Topps has continuously pushed back release dates so MOST products don't even release during the season.
Combine that with lackluster card design, horriblel, near-worthless value in the product being sold, and disgraceful Redemption turn around time: it is now time to give all companies an MLB Licence. When Companies compete, consumers win.
In 1995 'The Bosman Ruling' was granted by the European Court of Justice - a ruling that allows out-of-contract footballers to leave their clubs without the clubs receiving a transfer fee.

Now that greed has embedded itself into the 'Heart and Soul' of the 'Beautiful Game', it is now time the clubs and ultimately the fans receive similar protection from football players (and their agents) who in most cases are awarded enormously huge salary increases half way through already highly paid contracts!
• A football player signs for a club on a four year deal worth £40,000 per week
= £2.08 million per year
= £8.32 million per contract term
• The player performs as he is paid to do so and after a successful first season (perhaps two), the player attracts offers from other clubs who have excessive amounts of cash to spend.
• In order to hold onto their player, the player's club rewards the player with a new deal worth a staggering £120,000 per week!
= £4.16 million ‘EXTRA’ per year!
= £6.24 million per year!
• One season plus £4.16 million ‘EXTRA’ later -the player and/or his agent/s states the player now wishes to leave the club (Normally fabricating excuses such as it is the players desire to play for a bigger club and/or to play in a competition such as the Champions League)
• This leaves the club (and the fans) in a very difficult situation, especially after the player stated and committed his ‘Love for the Club’ and received an extra £4.16 million that season for doing so! -and will subsequently receive an extra £4.16 million each year if he continues to ‘Honour his Contract’.
• In most cases, the club (and the fans) don’t want a so called ‘Unhappy Player’ at the club hence the club has little choice but to sell the player = PLAYER & AGENT/s WIN!
• THIS MUST STOP NOW!
The Coastal Carolina Soccer Field is the home of the Men's and Women's soccer teams. Not only is this where both teams play their home games, but this is also where BOTH teams are required to practice.
Coastal Carolina has a proud soccer tradition and the Men's team is enjoying success on a National level. The only thing holding back both teams right now is the soccer facility. Just two weeks until preseason starts and half of the field is bare ground and sand.
This has got to change in order for both teams to be successful, and in order for the administration to not be embarrassed when other teams come to play at Coastal.
The area south of Visy Park at Princes Park (the Southern Sports Area) accommodates a range of community sporting activities, including cricket and touch rugby in summer, and soccer in winter. Council strongly supports sports participation at Princes Park, when sports grounds are used for competition and training throughout the year. Demand for the use of these sports grounds is increasing throughout the City of Melbourne and Council is currently unable to meet the demand for grounds in Princes Park.
The Southern Sports Area can cater for the demand for increased grounds and facilities for sports use with the redevelopment works described below.
In 2012 the City of Melbourne Councillors signed off on the Princes Park Master Plan after consultation with residents, sporting groups and other users of the park. The Plan includes the following recommendations:
- Upgrade sports surfaces within the southern sports field area to enable flexible community use. Works include regrading, irrigation and drainage improvements and best practice turf surfaces.
- Implement sports lighting around the perimeter of the southern sports fields in accordance with the relevant Australian Standards.
- Install a multipurpose fully accredited synthetic sports surface on Crawford Oval. This will increase the carrying capacity for the same amount of sports area. Retain sports lighting and upgrade existing boundary fence.
- As a part of Council’s pavilion refurbishment program, review the capacity of the southern pavilion to accommodate increased usage.
- Develop a new turf cricket oval to the south of Oval One. Create low mounds between Oval One and southern sports field area to provide enhanced views of the ovals. Install seating and introduce additional tree planting for natural shade.
- Upgrade the cricket nets adjacent to the Southern Pavilion.
These works will dramatically increase the quality of the playing and training ground surfaces, which all sporting groups at the park share. These improvements are long overdue for clubs at Princes Park. With the projected increase in demand for sports fields, now is the time to make the plan a reality.
Many people want Chatfield High school to have a soccer team for Chatfield.
Le projet du complexe sportif soccer / aquatique serait situer a proximité de l'hôpital Anna-Laberge, derrière LPP.
The soccer / swimming complex, would be located near the Anna-Laberge hospital, behind the LPP school.
oil & gas programme was organized by management development and productivity institute/goodwill international group across the country for interested persons to get involved and the state promised to sponsor this as a result of oil discovery in the country
10. Stop the FFA
It is time for the FFA to stop being biased towards Melbourne Victory. It has been noted by many that they are Anti-Victory. It is also evident that Melbourne Victory are regularly assigned referees who have a bad history against Victory.
As an example, in the most recent game against WSW, the referee failed to allow a trainer on to attend to an injured player, who was later diagnosed with a ruptured ACL. This is a disgrace!
Please Note: This is not a petition created by anyone involved within Melbourne Victory FC.
The Glamorgan Board of Trustees has stated :
- that it is not an option for them to replace the current sports uniforms due to the cost;
- that from 2013 all students who represent the school in a sports team will need to purchase their own uniform.
The cost of these uniforms indicated by the Board of Trustees in the quarterly newsletter on November 2012 will range from $85 - $95, but these costs are indicative and have not been confirmed.
We believe that there are alternative ways to fund a 'set' of school uniforms. For example, fundraising, applying for grants, sponsorships etc. There are parents who are willing to assist in these processes.
Parents would also be willing to pay a 'rental' fee for uniforms which would recoup the cost of the uniforms over a few years.
Many families in Torbay are struggling financially. Currently registering for sports teams is a large expense especially when there is more than one child attending the school. Netball in particular has raised the cost of registering significantly. This could ultimately determine whether or not a child would sign up for a sport.
The game of Soccer is slowly but surely becoming a new driving force in the United States. As it grows and evolves in this country on a daily basis, so do its fans. We the fans understand the science of the game as it pertains to the art of tactics, formations, and player positions and as it pertains to the National game, roster spots.
Under the leadership of USSF President Sunil Gulati and now manager Jurgen Klinsmann, the USMNT seems to be in a stalemate yet again. From a fan standpoint it is extremely disheartening. Many fans do not trust the leadership of the USSF and fear that in the coming rounds of the hexagonal and potentially the World Cup 2014 may come huge disappointment.
From the numerous internet blogs, articles etc the debate about soccer in America (specifically on the International level) is very healthy. There is debate in which fans support the work that of Klinsmann while others are extremely disappointed. But from researching multiple posts about the team, it appears that the biggest argument between fans is that of player selection and formations.
The problem that many have including myself with player selection and formation is the fact that Klinsmann has given very clear indications on how to impress him and make National team rosters, but once a team is selected he goes against his own teachings. He wants to score goals, yet he plays 3DM players, being consistent and getting club time is significant in his eyes, yet in the game v Russia he adds Agudelo (who made a difference) and Edu who has played 9min with Stoke.
Ed Austin Regional Park offers affordable recreational soccer for children. The fields are experiencing abuse, animal waste, vandalism and motor vehicles drive across them at will.
The soccer club has generously offered a gift to the City to pay for all the expenses to add fencing around the playing fields.
We need your signature to persuade the City of Jacksonville to allow the club to erect the fencing. Again, at no cost or labor to the city.
I STRONGLY SUPPORT THAT DAVID BECKHAM SHOULD BE SELECTED TO PLAY FOR GB OLYMPIC FOOTBALL TEAM.
ALL THE WORK HE HAS DONE FOR WORLD FOOTBALL INCLUDING THE OLYMPICS SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED BY SELECTING HIM TO PLAY FOR GB OLYMPIC TEAM.
Wolfgang Stark ima 42 godine, njemački je sudac i bankarski službenik iz Landshuta. U životopis može slobodno dodati da je izbacio Hrvatsku s Eura. Prvo nije vidio Ramosov divljački start džonom na Marija Mandžukića, a potom ni Busquetsovo povlačenje za dres Vedrana Ćorluke koje se vidjelo s vrha tribine.
Španjolski mediji su složni - Stark je pogriješio. Trebao je suditi dva penala. Njemački mediji idu korak dalje. "Stark je izbacio Hrvate s Eura", piše ugledni njemački dnevnik Bild koji je Starka ocijenio jedinicom. Bundesligaški igrači proglasili su ga najlošijim sucem lige.
- Sad vidite i zašto - dobacio je Danijel Pranjić u prolazu nakon jučerašnjeg poraza. No to nije prvi put da Stark tako loše sudi. Nedavno ga je nakon utakmice za ulazak u Bundesligu između Fortune i Herthe udario Kobiašvili. Hrvatski stoper Andre Mijatović rekao mu je da je kreten. Stark je sve to ispričao na saslušanju i igrači su kažnjeni. Stark je morao izaći sa stadiona u pratnji policije nakon te utakmice.
A sudac koji sudi Euro malo prečesto izlazi sa stadiona u pratnji policije. Na U-20 SP-u 2007. godine sudio je polufinale između Čilea i Argentine. Potpuno je izgubio kontrolu, Čileancima dodijelio sedam žutih i dva crvena kartona dosudivši 53 prekršaja. Nakon utakmice jedva je izbjegao linč mladih Čileanaca. Ponovno ga je ispratila policija...
U utakmici Lige prvaka sudio je smiješan penal za Barcelonu protiv Milana na San Siru. Aquilani je stavio ruku na rame Xaviju, ovaj je pao - Stark je brzopotezno pokazao na bijelu točku. Šteta što sinoć nije bio tako dosljedan...
Svi Starkovi grijesi:
U-20, SP 2007 - izgubio kontrolu u utakmici Čilea i Argentine
Chelsea - Inter, 2010 - nije dosudio dva penala za Chelsea
Real - Barcelona, 2011 - loše sudio u porazu Reala
Milan - Barcelona, 2012 - Za Barcu dosudio sumnjivi penal
Bundesliga 2012 - igrači ga proglasili najlošijim sucem
USA Youth Sports is a recreational sporting league with over 5000 children registered yearly in four seasons.
We would like to form a soccer club called USA FC to represent our area, to provide a direction for recreational players to play competitively and to play in the Pima County Junior Soccer League.
It is our feeling that players and parents should be provided with the option to play competitive "club" soccer and no recreational teams shall be "harmed" while building or maintaining this club...our desire is to provide a method to further develop those players that wish to do so.
We have elected board members (13) and 8-10 teams waiting for AYSA to approve this request. We are NOT properly supported or represented by clubs from and like Randolf, Tucson Soccer Academy or the Fort Lowell SC as we are forty (40) miles South of Tucson and NOT in Tucson. The communities South of Tucson would like to play soccer during the Fall season to also play games SOUTH OF TUCSON as well as be able to call Rancho Sahuarita our “HOME” field for at least SOME of our games.
We have more fields in our area than any one area in Tucson and are currently forced to drive to Tucson for tournaments and league play.
With the current European leagues coming to a close, the nature of awarding the teams based on performance in the league system has been in use for long and has become redundant and out of time.
In this petition, I intend to introduce new points system that will reward football clubs that perform well in league games at the same time give as expected to poorly performing sides. Basically, this will create a fair award system.
4points-Awarded to a team that wins without conceding a goal
3points-Awarded to a team that wins but concedes a goal(s).
2points-Awarded to teams that draw but have scored a goal(s)
1point-Awarded to teams that draw but do not score in the match
0points-Awarded to teams that lost the match but scored a goal(s)
-1point-Awarded to teams that lost a match and did not score a goal.

For years the condition of the fields at M.M. Robinson have been appalling.
Since becoming FIFA President in June 1998, Sepp Blatter has committed innumerable crimes against the sport of football, blatantly disrespecting the game, its players, its supporters, and its officials.
1)Mr. Blatters wildly inappropriate requests for womens football shorts to be made tighter border on the sexist.
2) There have been constant reports of vote rigging, financial corruption and financial mismanagement within FIFA with Mr. Blatter at the centre.
3) Allegations of corruption and financial irregularities (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA#Allegations_of_financial_irregularities)
4)Refusal to implement modern goal-line technology to take pressure off referees and ensure fair play.
5) More recently, remarks made by Sepp Blatter condoning racism on the football field.
Gol TV Canada has been available for about 5 years now and still does not offer their service in HD and now they are getting people to call their cable companies but nothing seems to be happening from it at all.
There is a proposal in place to redevelop sports fields in Roma Qld .
There is a number of concerns in regards to this development, and they are outlined below;
1/ The proposed development is in a flood zone.
2/ Shared facilities are proposed.These include fields, clubrooms, etc. Little detail on the workings of this club is currently available;
3/ Access to the proposed facility is poor. A considerable road upgrade would need to be undertaken.
4/ Current facilities used by cricket and Rugby Union would be rezoned for commercial development. This would have a detrimental effect on the appearance of Roma.
5/ In particular concern to the Rugby Union Club,is their requirement that as they are part of a wider competition, their homefield requirements would become paramount. This would impact on potential availability of the clubrooms for other sports, and could be cause for conflict.
6/ Council has not engaged the Community in a meaningful way. Their approach has been piecemeal and fractious.
7/ Lesser Sports such has Soccer have not been able to plan with certainty. Coupled with natural disaster (the soccer fields have experienced severe flooding over the last two years), this has impacted negatively on the viability of the Club.
Since 2008, UBC’s administration has been considering joining the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) as the main organizing body for the university’s varsity sports. Currently, UBC is a member of CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) in the Canada West Region.
Membership in the NCAA would help UBC attract academically qualified student athletes from across Canada and the US, who would otherwise choose NCAA affiliated schools. This allows the university to build a top-tier varsity athletics program, to match its top-tier academic reputation.
A decision is expected on this matter by April, 2011, in advance of the next NCAA Division II application deadline of June 1, 2011.
Introduction of video review in national and international soccer games.
To petition the Qld Government to release an excess parcel of land adjacent to existing sporting fields to the Cairns Regional Council to provide additional floodlit rectangular sporting fields for the Edmonton and Cairns Southern Corridor communities for future sporting and recreational activities in a high population growth area.
Dan Courtemanche from MLS is aware of our group and efforts to have an MLS team in Atlanta.
Footballers are people who think they are untouchable but in truth they need to wake up and realise that they aren't and there are other people in the world who deserve the money or at least a piece of that money, and with your help we can get FIFA to cap the wages and stop them getting absurd amounts of money.
Yet again, the voices and opinions of what make Scottish Football what it is, the FANS has gone unheard and unheeded.
Yet again, two clubs that could not care less about OUR game - only their own bank accounts - are attempting to bully every other club into bending to their will.
Yet again, the Old Pals Act, The Old Firm, are hitting, not only SPL but SFL, clubs with their big stick.
Yet again, business not sport, is trying to force the issue.
Football is billed as the Beautiful Game, the game for the man in the street.
Some modern day football CLUBS, however, seem to think that "the man in the street", the paying customer is now less important than having television cameras at their matches.
They are WRONG!
It's OUR "ball" ... and without US, they have no game! Without US, the game has no soul!
For some reason, the Old Firm are still seen as having a position of strength.
No longer can they threaten to take their "product" elsewhere if they don't get their way.
The English don't want them. UEFA and FIFA have told them they are stuck here.
So why the hell are OUR clubs still listening to them?
This petition is as a result of lack of progress being made by our coach,in terms of the general performance of the team.
1. He is costing us millions in development by always offloading players from development structures of the team.
2. Millions again with players who are bought and then not being used.
3. He is costing us future supporters in that,there is little success at the team.only 2 in 10 children under 10 support pirates.as the old supporters fade,there would be very few people associated with the team.
4. He does not promote unity in the team by fielding players out of position,even when those bought for those positions are available.
5. He has compromised the style of play that the team is known for.lack of direction.
6. Does not seem to have a plan B when the initial plan does not yield the required results.
7. His team is not selected according to form.
