Following the recent increase of cases that relate to Social Networking sites, we would like to issue this memo, as a reminder to all participants, that any comment they make which is offensive, threatening, violent or that is deemed to have brought the game into disrepute will result in action being taken against them by the Devon FA.
To clarify a participant is a player, referee, coach, parent, spectator, club official or any other individual who has an active involvement with football. Participants are responsible for any comments or posts that are associated with their account.
Clubs and Leagues are responsible for all content of their own websites & accounts, and if comments cannot be traced back to an individual, the club or league will be held accountable for these.
Several serious charges have been raised against individuals and clubs in the last 6 months; please ensure all members are educated on this subject.
