That is the main reason why I think the SFA fast-track panel reached the correct outcome when they upheld compliance officer Vincent Lunny's decision to ban Sone Aluko for two games.
But the SFA have blown it big time. Their procedures to combat diving are in chaos and it is the governing body who have brought it about. If they were consistent in the way they are trying to stamp out blatant diving, right from the beginning of the season and the Garry O'Connor incident against St Johnstone, they wouldn't be in this situation now. How the panel made the decision to reverse O'Connor's ban is beyond me.
