Thread: A new idea on the handball debate

    A new idea on the handball debate

    What if the players had their arms strapped to their body in three places:just below the shoulder, at the elbow and at the wrist. Thus if it hit them it would be accidental and the game would continue.The keeper would be exempt but not allowed to leave his 18 yard box for any reason. Throw ins would become kick ins with no player allowed within 10 yards of the kickee.
    I would also enjoy seeing them try to get up when they fell over.

    We could always search out defenders suffering from Thalidomide for our back four to compliment our keeper who does a striking impression of someone inflicted with that condition!

    Throw ins could be problematic though.

    Expect to see quotas required in all teams for disabled players, along with similar quotas for homo***uals and those who can’t decide which *** they wish to identify with. Doesn’t it warm your heart that we live in such a warm, caring society?

    Would really sort the men from the boys when it came to a free kick just outside the box...with no arm covering of your nether region....

    Actually there is an easy solution - handball is only handball when it’s deliberate ..... get rid of all this unlucky deflection b***s**t .... like the Dier and Maupay penalties last weekend...... or if it’s handball every time someone handles in the box .... like the Havertz handball against us .... then for Christ’s sake be consistent ......

    Handballs used to be fun, rather enjoyable as I remember! Oh, sorry, are we talking football here?
