Thousands of RKFC fans disappointed as AIFF bans David Robertson, Mason Robertson for 4 matches

Srinagar March 08 (KINS): The All India Football Federation (AIFF) decision banning Real Kashmir Football Club (RKFC) head coach David Robertson and his son Mason Robertson for four matches and fined Rs 2 lakh on each, has left thousands of fans of the club disappointed.
RKFC head coach David Robertson and his son Mason Robertson, who plays as a centre back, were on Saturday suspended for four matches and fined Rs 2 lakh each for allegedly abusing the referee in their I-League game against Indian Arrows.
Kaisar Ahmad, an ardent supporter of RKFC said this was a harsh decision taken by the All India Football Federation Disciplinary Committee. “Real Kashmir is the top most club in Kashmir. It emerged one among top clubs within a few years. This decision has left us totally disappointed. It was because of Real Kashmir that so many children are playing football these days in Kashmir. It is shocking that such a decision has been taken by AIFF,” he told news agency Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS).
Another football lover from Srinagar’s Hawal, Adnan Ahmad said RKFC has four more matches to be played in the ongoing I-League. “Banning the head coach and captain is a very unfortunate decision. AIFF should reconsider this decision for the fans of RKFC,” he said.
The RKRC management said they have already appealed for revocation of the ban. “We hope AIFFDC would reconsider it for larger interests of the same,” the RKFC management said. 
“The Committee imposed sanctions of suspension of four matches upon Mr David Robertson, the coach of ‘Real Kashmir FC’ and his son Mr Mason Robertson (jersey No 3) of ‘Real Kashmir FC’…,” the Committee said in its judgment.
“… both of them are also to pay a fine of Rs 2 lakh each to be paid forthwith and until such payment in full, both to remain barred as per Article 21 of the Code, notwithstanding four-match suspensions.”
The AIFF disciplinary committee consists of chairman Ushanath Banerjee, Haresh Vora, Madhav Milan Ghosh and Adithya Reddy. (KINS)
