The Double Standard of the PSL Disciplinary Committee

Written By Themba Khumalo on Wednesday, November 27, 2013 | Wednesday, November 27, 2013

Double standard is a rule or principle which is unfairly applied in different ways to different people. I have lost confidence in the slanted, illogical and inconsistency verdicts of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Disciplinary Committee.

They are a lot of ambiguities regarding injudiciousness decisions already taken by the committee. The committee lacks fairness and egalitarianism when handing down judgment.

Mabhuti Khenyeza by then at Ajax Cape Town was convicted of swearing and spitting at a match official, Zakhele Siwela. Khenyeza was suspended from all football activities under the auspices of the League for a period of 12 (twelve) months. However, there is no strong evidence that Khenyeza swore and spattered at Zakhele Siwela except hearsay evidence already presented.

The judgment handed down to Khenyeza was harsh taking into consideration the weight of his transgression. Khenyeza has appealed the PSL Disciplinary Committee inconsiderate decision.

Kaizer Chiefs defender Morgan Gould has been banned for just two meagre matches for punching Bidvest Wits striker Getaneh Kebede. The unsporting action was shown live on the national television. Many soccer pundits anticipated that Gould will be sidelined for a lengthy period after being charged with assault. However, he will only miss just two mere matches, while also having to part with R50 000.

Khenyeza was handed down severe judgment for light offence whilst Gould was handed light sentence for severe offence.

What’s your view on the inconsistency decisions handed down to Khenyeza and also Gould despite difference in a nature of offence?
