YAFONOOB MANIFESTO FOR RESTRUCTURING AND PROTECTING THE INTEGRITY OF WORLDWIDE FOOTBALL
Quorum: At the beginning of the game, a referee shall be randomly selected from a quorum of at least 7 eligible referees who are waiting and available at the game. No one will know who the referee will be, until 5 minutes before the game and that referee shall be prevented from private communication with anyone until the end of the match.
3 Judge Panel: Of the remaining referees in the quorum, 3 shall be randomly selected and separately sequestered to be game judges. Either team may request the 3JP to review any play and make a decision. If a team requests the 3JP to evaluate an outcome, and the 3JP uphold the referee’s decision or decide against the requesting team, a yellow card shall be handed to the requesting team for excessive time wasting. Any of these 3 Judges request the 3 Judges to make an intervention or examine a play at any time.
Yellow Cards: 3 yellow cards in succession, for any reason, given against one team and or its players, with the opposing team not having received a yellow card during that run of 3, shall result in 1 point (goal) given to the other team.
Fake Injury Penalty: Yellow cards may be given out by the referee or the judges for excessive theatrics and fake injuries. If an injury is so bad that a player is writhing on the floor in agony, they should be immediately removed from the field via stretcher and examined by a doctor for no less than 5 minutes.
Injury Removal: For the safety of the players and the integrity of the game, any injury causing a player to lay on the ground, writhing in agony will necessitate the immediate removal of that player to be examined, off the field, for at least 5 minutes by the doctor. The team may have a substitute player take the injured player’s place.
Time Wasting Penalty: The referee and 3JP can issue a yellow card for multiple or egregious time wasting in an attempt to run down the clock. These include but are not limited to walking slower than normal while holding the ball, or while approaching the ball. Taking too long to get up off the ground or any other longer than necessary actions or inactions determined by the 3PJ or referee. This is another example of where a team can request the 3PJ to intervene.
