Behaviour Of Professional Footballers

EDM number 739 in 2004-05, proposed by Gerry Steinberg on 22/02/2005.

That this House fully supports Chief Inspector Chris Shoad of the Surrey Police Force, who has instructed his officers to arrest footballers who use threatening, foul or abusive language or gestures during a match where the referee has failed to take appropriate action which appears to be the normal approach; and condemns the Football Association for its pathetic attempts to combat yobbish behaviour on the football field, thereby allowing thugs and yobs to become role models for the nation's young aspiring footballers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
