15th FebDissent towards an umpire

It is important that umpires understand that 2 yellow cards to the same player for duplicate minor offences (the second resulting in a red card') cannot be given for dissent towards an umpire. If a yellow card has already been shown to a player for this, any repeat by the same player must result in a straight red card, with the resulting consequences.

This is very clear in Section 6.3 of the England Hockey Red Card and Matchday Misconduct Regulations from September 2016 which says

Where a person has committed a red card offence which consisted of two separate, but the same, minor offences for which a yellow card was awarded for the first offence (see Rule 2.3 e of Umpiring, page 44, FIH Rules of Hockey from 1 January 2015) there shall be no further period of suspension. A minor offence is defined as an offence which does not involve
i. any used, attempted or threatened physical violence or
ii. any dissent towards an umpire, properly appointed tournament or match official
