Astros has proposed that if a player is given a yellow card in their final game of a tournament, it should carry over to the next tournament.  Otherwise, there would be no real repercussions since the tournament is over for the player anyways.

In at least USA sports, this would be the case and for the obvious reason that Astros has mentioned. I agree that this would be the most appropriate thing to do.

I would like to clarify that is only for yellow cards issued for unsportsmanlike conduct; I am not suggesting that scheduling yellow cards should carry over.

Let's say that a player received a yellow card for unsportsmanlike conduct in the final week of a tournament.

Then let's say that the same player receives a yellow card for failing to provide availability in the second week of their next tournament.

Would you propose that player be disqualified?

Perhaps it would be better to propose that any player who receives two yellow cards for unsportsmanlike behaviour within a specified timeframe gets a tournament ban.

Only unsportsmanlike behavior yellow cards would carry over, so no, the player in your example would not be banned.

I think extending a tournament ban to a player who gets red carded for unsportsmanlike behavior is a good idea.

Just curious. Is there a statue of limitations for reporting abusive behaviour? If not, it would encourage the possibility to storing abusive evidence in hopes of pegging a player when it is beneficial for them to do so. If not, you might want to add a statue of limitations while you're updating TC law.

TC has now voted on this proposal.

 

Against (3-1)

 

Some comments:

 

'I am fine to issue a punishment for players that receive yellow cards for unsporting behaviour. But I would not support it carrying over to the next tournament'

 

'I would propose that TC - at the end of a tournament - may issue a ban for a player that has received multiple yellow cards for unfair sporting behaviour (or similar offence)'
