FA simulation panel

#1
I was at a game on Saturday (football league) and a player left the ground but made no contact with the player. The player rolls around etc but as soon as the card is shown he's up and lively.

Who decides which simulation incidents are reviewed by the panel?

On the Sky Sports footage you cannot see the incident properly as i would have put a link on here.

I look forward to your opinions.

Not sure how I feel about having ex-managers and players on the panel. Seems to make a mockery of officiating, that we somehow have to have players there to 'please' them if that makes sense.

Red all day long from me, you can't fly into a challenge like that and expect to be allowed to stay on the pitch.

And it was right in front of the assistant, so I'm sure he would have advised the ref on whether it was simulation or not.

I can't comment on the defenders reaction to the challenger, as once all the players piled in and the morons from The Rainham End got thrown out I couldn't really see what happened
