Racist behaviour.

Racist remark

Racist remark

During a stoppage in a U12’s game, a forward complains that an opponent made a racist remark to him. The opponent admits it, and says sorry.
What do you do?

 

You are the ref

Read the statements below and decide which is correct. Click on the button to find out if you are right.
You should punish the player!

Sorry. That's not the right answer.

You cannot take action, because you, the referee, did not hear the remark yourself. However, for the rest of the game, you should keep an eye on the two players, and after the game send a report to the appropriate competition stating that the boy admitted making the remark, in case the forward (the other player) wishes to take it further.

You should not punish the player.

Well done! That's the right answer.

Although racism in football is never acceptable, you cannot take action because you, the referee, did not hear the remark yourself. However, for the rest of the game, you should keep an eye on the two players, and after the game send a report to the appropriate competition stating that the boy admitted making the remark, in case the forward (the other player) wishes to take it further.

A verbal caution would do at this point once he has admitted to doing the act.

Also, the judge is obliged to notify the football association for every act of racism that occured on the pitch or in the dressing room.

I wouldn't sent him off since he appologized and admitted his mistake. I would warn him or show him a yellow card if it was a grave offense.

Sending him off have to be a difficult decision here because you may think if there isn't match fixing behind the fault.

Good refereeing. The referee cannot take action because he or assistant referees did not hear the remark themselves.

I got the answer wrong. I chose the first option as I thought punishment could be useful for future so that the player doesnt repeat the same mistake ever. Racism is not acceptable.

The same to me, but now I understand why not punishing the boy.
