Alan Harper: "I made my debut at Goodison against Stoke and was standing in the tunnel waiting to go onto the pitch. Z cars started playing on the PA and I heard the crowd roar. If I could bottle a moment and save it forever, then that would be it.

And "they" are always right? Bunch of idiots on the television mate.

Anyone got a link to the Official UEFA Rules?

Obviously there's not a single word saying that it is an offence. It's just poor refereeing and the public lapping it up. (Cue lots of "apparently", "they said on the telly" and "everybody knows this" statements.)
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

Cheers Bizi! Right I searched for the word "face" in that document and it didn't turn up anything about what we're discussing. So it is just comments made by pundits, commentators and journalists, inspired by one assumption, that lead to most people thinking this is an actual law.

The face thing simply comes from the fact that refs had started to send people off for any facial contact. Therefore commentators think it is the "law" simply as it is the most common occurence.

It's not different from the fact that people get booked for much more trivial offences these days than they used to in the past.
