Strict behaviour rules on teams introduced in EPL

Scudamore, who revealed the Premier League will for the first time meet players at all clubs prior to the season starting, added: "If participant behaviour doesn't improve, then there will be more yellow and red cards".

Speaking about the plan, which aims to improve behaviour, they say, "This will focus on behaviour towards match officials, with the aim of reducing disrespectful conduct such as aggressively challenging decisions or running from distance to confront an official".

A yellow card will be given for physical contact with any match official in a non-aggressive manner ( inquisitive approach to grab the official's attention).

The Premier League, Football Association and English Football League on Wednesday announced a joint initiative to use football's existing laws to stamp out bad behaviour.

SpaceX Wants More Landing Sites At Cape Canaveral
The rocket they will be using for this endeavor will be the Falcon Heavy, which will have three first-stage boosters. Still, it's a long shot considering SpaceX hasn't even launched the Falcon Heavy yet.

Referees have been warned about making physical contact with players and fourth officials have been ordered not to get too familiar with managers and coaches during matches.

Behaviour within the technical areas will also be more rigorously enforced.

If the initiative will be a success is yet to be seen, but it's surely a step in the right direction to stop the issues seen in the video below.

Mass surroundings of referees will also be punished with bookings to at least one of the players.

Clinton closes in on VP choice: Kaine and Vilsack leading the way
Campaign chair John Podesta and vice chair Huma Abedin were among the Clinton aides who spent the day at her home. His family ties to the Clintons date back to 1972 when his late brother-in-law worked with Hillary Clinton.

The stricter rules are welcome, as abuse towards officials is unacceptable and seeing multiple players surround a referee demanding a call and not receiving any discipline is tiresome.

Premier League Executive Chairman said the clampdown had arisen from "concerns that certain elements of player behaviour" were "overstepping the mark".

Plans created to reduce "intolerable behaviour" by players and managers in English football have been announced. The football body has chose to take a new approach when the new season resumes. "The clubs are committed and we are committed to see this through".

Meanwhile, red cards could be issued for aggressive contact with an official, offensive, abusive or insulting language or gestures directed at officials. "We still want to see the passion fans enjoy and demand, but players and managers have to be aware that there are lines not to be crossed".

Eovaldi strong as Yankees top Orioles, 7-1
Over at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday, the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees will be continuing their mid-week series. Worley, who was making his first start since April 15, allowed just three hits over 4 1/3 innings but yielded three runs.

The Premier League has had enough of multi-millionaire players abusing its match officials.
