Draws don't tend to bring out the best in coaches, hence the latest round of FFA sanctions.

Merrick was fined $3,000 following a stunning rant at referees after Newcastle Jets' 2-2 draw with Western Sydney Wanderers

Newcastle drew the match after conceding two contentious penalties, prompting Merrick to call referee Stebre Delovski's performance "disgraceful". 

Kurz was also fined $3,000 following comments after his side's 2-2 draw with Central Coast Mariners, in which he said Adelaide were playing against 12 men.

Finally, Kurz' central defender Gulum couldn't escape the governing body's wrath either, copping a $1,000 fine for aggressively remonstrating with the fourth official following his red card early in the match.
