    Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere (If so I'll happily request this deleted), but had a quick glance so couldn't see o/

    A FIFA candidate to succeed Sepp Blatter has suggested implementing an 'orange card system', whereby refs can send players to a sin bin type area, much like a few other sports you see.

    Article linked below, just wondering what you guys think. Do you reckon it could work for football?

    Personally I would love to see them imposed, in conjunction with much more use of technology and video referees to spot players diving.

    If every time a player was seen to take a dive they were sin-binned for 10 minutes then it would drastically reduce the amount of divers in football, because what kind of manager is going to continue to play somebody who routinely disadvantages their own team due to their diving.

    I don't understand this argument. 10 minutes off the pitch for a dive that could well win you a penalty doesn't seem like a deterrent at all. I cannot understand what the issue is with booking players for diving? If you dive twice in a game you get two yellows and you're off, what is wrong with that? Orange cards aren't the answer, referees need to stop chickening out of sending someone off for diving.

    No it won't work. Stupid thing. This isn't rugby where you can't ball hog. Time wasting is already a massive issue in football. All teams will do is refuse to play whilst said players is sin binned.

    Retrospective punishment is the answer. So simple

    Thanks BBC for showing us what an orange card might actually look like, so insightful.
