Panels to consider football sin-bins

Two new panels being set up to consider rule changes in football are set to consider the introduction of rugby-style sin-bins.

Trials of the sin-bin system are being carried out in the Dutch amateur leagues this season, and both FIFA president Sepp Blatter and UEFA counterpart Michel Platini have suggested the introduction of time penalties for players should be looked at.

And it is expected that the introduction of sin-bins, where a player would have to sit out the action for either five or 10 minutes, will be considered when the panels, reporting to the International Football Association Board (IFAB), are set up in March.

There will be a football panel, made up of former players and coaches, and a technical panel of referees and law experts. Both will submit recommendations to IFAB, made up of representatives of FIFA and the four British home associations, which then makes the final decisions.

Jonathan Ford, the Welsh FA chief executive and an IFAB member, told Press Association Sport: "Sin-bins have been mooted in the past, and there is a trial going on in Dutch football which has generated a fair amount of interest, so one would expect that it will be one of topics the new advisory panels take up.

"The idea of the panels is that they will be more proactive -- they will be able to look at these things and debate them, while the IFAB's role will be as the final decision-makers."

Other issues likely to be under the microscope included the so-called "triple punishment," when a player concedes a penalty and is sent off and suspended, and the offside laws.

Ford said the IFAB had not succeeded in solving the problem of the "triple punishment" because "we have not found a better way."

The organisation has prided itself on taking a conservative approach to changing the laws of the game, and Ford said he expected that approach to continue.

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
