FlagPlus Football has a Disciplinary Committee that is responsible for handling reports from officials and determining any resulting disciplinary sanctions thereafter. The committee is voluntary and is made up of a mix of FPF Officials, staff members and players. The objective of the committee is to handle each report fairly and objectively, and with the best interest of maintaining the safe and sportsmanlike culture of the league.
The Current FPF Disciplinary Committee members are:
Steven Hodhod (Official) - CHAIRMAN
Jean-Christophe Mercille (Player)
Rehan Sarwar (Staff/Player)
The Chairman is named by league President, Rob Campana; the other members are selected by the Chairman, himself.
SUSPENSIONS ARE ISSUED IN TERMS OF WEEKS
Players are ineligible for games across all divisions while serving a suspension, not simply the division in which the infraction took place.
All decisions made by the FPF Disciplinary Committee are final and cannot be appealed.
For any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Steps once an Incident Report is received by the Disciplinary Committee:
1) The Chairman will email the captain(s) of the player(s) in question to notify them that a report has been received.
2) If the altercation is between two separate players/teams, both captains will have 24 hours to submit ONE detailed account and description of the situation from their perspective.
**If the altercation involves only one player/team and an official or league administrator, the captains will not be asked for an account and description..
3) The Disciplinary Committee Chairman presents the report(s) from the officials and/or league employee(s), as well as the captains’ descriptions (if applicable) to the remaining members of the committee. Taking the first-hand information into account, and factoring-in both past precedents and current guidelines, they come to a final resolution regarding whether or not a suspension will be issued, and if so, the duration.
4) Decisions are usually rendered 72 hours before the team’s next game (whenever possible).
Listed below is a list of the suspensions handed out during this current season:
Stefano Solimene (Warriors) has been suspended 4 weeks.
Peter Giannias (Warriors) has been suspended 2 weeks.
