Rool received his second yellow card in Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Marseille when he was adjudged to have fouled Demetrius Ferreira.
However, it did seem as though Ferreira dived but that did not stop referee Alain Sars producing the red card.
Pavon is upset at Sars' decision to send Rool for an early bath, saying that it was not deserved.
"If there should be a card, it is for simulation against the Marseille player," said Pavon.
"Now, I want to see if the disciplinary committee is useful.
"Logically, Rool should be cleared, if not, a sending off and a suspension means a double punishment for us."
Rool has a reputation as something of a bad boy in France, after being dismissed 18 times in his career.
Pavon is concerned that the former Lens and Bastia man is being treated too harshly by officials who are swayed by his reputation.
