Thread: David Ellery hoping to change the rules

    David Ellery hoping to change the rules

    i think they should have a look at video tech for big decisions but some of these rule changes are ridiculous



    60 minutes of actual playing time

    Penalties when keepers handle backpasses

    Penalty goal for handling on the line

    Players can dribble from free-kicks and corners

    Ball does not need to be stationary for set-pieces

    I thought this was ridiculous at first but they reckon that the ball is only actually in play for 60 minutes of most games. You never know, it might put a stop to players acting like they've been run over by a steamroller to try and waste time if the clock has stopped?

    Not sure what his beef is here, like. Hardly ever happens anyway. If the ball was going in then it would be a pen anyway.

    If it's going in then fair enough. Penalties can be missed (or scored then disallowed ) and if a definite goal has been denied through cheating then a penalty goal seems fair, no?

    Change for change's sake. Can't see the point in either of these.

    As for future changes I'd like to see, definitely video technology for some decisions-sending off, goals which should have been allowed/disallowed and retrospective action on diving (that's happening already, isn't it?), maybe some form of orange card sin bin type thingy? Physio allowed on the pitch during play.

    Video tech has to be brought in more for key decisions.

    But some of them are, as stated, change for change sake.
