    They’ve doubled the level of suspensions handed out to players and are saying they’ll come down especially hard on repeat offenders, but the big one is quoted below. Let’s see if they actually follow through. I’ve provided more links with related information.

    Probably going to be enforced as strictly as the 6 seconds rule, but not complaining about having better rules in place - even if I don´t know what the "three-step procedure" is?

    But who's going to have the game forfeited? The home team?
    What if the racist isn't from the home team?

    Yea there’s no chance a ref will forfeit a game for Mexico. He’d be shot within an hour.

    Let's actually see if CONCACAF will actually dock WC Qualifier points from Mexico.

    I have a better chance of hitting the Powerball lol
