John Terry got 4 games. Suspect FF will get the same.

There's a racist element allegedly so he was always going to get charged by the FA evidence or not.

 

So if someone alleges racism towards any other player its a case of guilty in the eyes of the FA true or not?

John Terry you could see on TV what he pretty much said.

It is more the case that the EFL has a lower burden of proof required so that even though there was insufficient evidence for him to be guilty of a criminal charge there may be enough for the EFL.

 

It is similar with civil actions which can be carried out following failure to convict under criminal law.

Therein lies the kneejerk problem mate.....

In a court of law...There has to be proof...

In this case the F.a are simply taking one footballers word against another..with no proof whatsoever

Hows that happen?

It opens a total can of worms

and the civil action can be taken by a third party?

Cue the bbc making a documentary about waysism and how Forestieri is a nazi who has slaves and jews in his basement, no evidence needed just a virtue signalling far left nut job with a laptop and the ability to photoshop.

Not sure but the EFL is not taking a civil action, it is all part of their internal disciplinary procedures, which everyone who plays in the EFL signs up for by default.

 

Certainly the chap who is accusing him could take a civil action against him.

Far more trouble than he’s worth FF, but if banned then surely the games missed can be preseason games as opposed to league games.

using the FAs logic I'm surprised the FA hasn't charged every club with racial discrimination with the amount of times people like Barnes and sol Campbell have pulled the race card about the lack of job opportunities.

3 games, and a £25,000 kick to the wallet.

I really don't get this. He is effectively been tried 3 times for the same thing. 3 match ban, court case and now this. 

 

Surely a decent lawyer would get this kicked out but with the idiots running football, I'm not so sure. 

 

Has the Mansfield player who karate kicked Tom Lees ever been charged? 

I'm sure he got away with it.

Absolute bloody joke, the courts found him not guilty but the FA can charge him? And why has it taken all this time?

 

Did their player get charged for punching Tom Lees?

Given that he was already banned and this has been through court. The FA still persisting with this seems wholly unnecessary...12 months later.  Why do they feel the need to get involved again? Players use foul and abusive language in most games.
