Alter the law so decisions during a match can be reviewed and overturned.

This petition had 2,654 supporters

Many current and ex players, coaches, journalists and fans alike are becoming increasingly concerned by the amount of incorrect decisions and mistakes being made by officials. The vast majority of referees and officials get the decisions right most of the time and we understand that human error will always occur, therefore we feel it is imperative that the governing body of English Football must change, and must be allowed to act in these situations.

In the last few seasons the FA have made several claims about plans to make the game safer and having player protection at the heart of their policies and practices. We therefore believe it is time for the FA to practice what it preaches. Too many incidents have occurred recently where a tackle or act of violence has been caught on camera but no punishment was issued by the officials. The FA then claimed that as one or more officials had seen the incidents they could not act. WE BELIEVE THIS TO BE WRONG, we believe that if the FA wants to protect its players and continue to aid the premier league in being the league of choice for some of the most talented players then they must change the law and must start looking after these young footballers both for their safety and the sake of their careers. Please sign if you agree.
