But then you have to allow an appeal for every yellow, say he had got the one for the supposed dive first, which would then make them too busy.
I'm talking about only whereby two yellows result in a red. If a yellow is issued which doesn't result in a sending off, effectively one yellow, then that cannot be appealed regardless.
Where two yellows result in a sending off, and either of the yellows is questionable then there should be a right to an appeal. How many players on average in the professional leagues get sent off as a result of two yellows on a typical weekend. I would hazard a guess at no more than 3 to 5 per weekend? If there has been a genuinely poor yellow either first or second then clubs/players should have the right to appeal, again with the 'frivolous' rule to stop clubs appealing when clearly the correct decisions have been made, the same as with red card appeals in general.
I don't see how this would lead to a huge amount of 'additional' work for the FA.
