I think this is a cool idea. Football should not be changed, but perhaps these new changes can be made to create a new game of football. There could be two leagues: one with football as we know it and one with football with the changes being experimented. I think it would be cool to watch or to play that. Or maybe it could be like a new type of minor league with professional football being the major league. All in all I would say keep the current rules the same but create a new game where these rules can be implemented.

I strongly suspect that these outrageous, ridiculous suggestions came from Americans, as they have been suggesting exactly this in the past, although it was not mentioned that whoever is responsible for this rubbish is influenced by American wishes.

Fine don’t change this crazy but they need to pause the clock for play stoppages or extend stoppage time. They are playing at least 5-10 minutes less than the expected amount. I’m fine with throw ins staying as they are. Also there needs to be less games played.

The handball and offside bastardization that's been implemented the last decade or two have ruined this game. These others are change just for change's sake.

I like those changes. The only two things I would add are to play the game with hands instead of feet and introduce baskets instead of goals.

That's a bunch of bs rules...what in this world. The only rule that it should approved and kept is 5 sub changes

Everything that makes football now is football , the moment you start implementing new rules like 4 quarters and throw ins with your feet or unlimited substitutes it’s not football any more might as well name it something else bc when I’m older I will remember football how it is

- Two 30-minute halves w/ game clock stopped .... I would be interested to know how much time the ball is actually in play during our current 45-minute halves. Is it more or less than 30 minutes? If it is less, then I would be in support of that change. If they could also stop the clock when goalies are holding the ball that'd be great. - Unlimited substitutions ......................................... This just slows the game down too much even if it makes the coach and tactics more important. - Throw-ins played with feet .................................... I think if we weren't used to normal throw-ins and the game were being invented today, this would be the natural way of inbounding the ball. Not sure how throw-ins were invented. But this would really slow things down a lot because a lot more plays would essentially be like corner kicks. Perhaps a better rule would be to award a corner kick when the defense hits the ball out of bounds within 18 yards of the corner flag. - 5-minute suspensions ........................................... If they can also give 5-minute suspensions based on VAR evidence of diving then sure why not. - Free kicks can be dribbled immediately ............... I can imagine a lot of exciting 2-touch free kick highlights and this would make tactical fouling slightly riskier. Also if it's a "free" kick then it kind of makes sense to remove the limits on it. But I don't think this really does too much.

Football ⚽️ has a lot to learn from other sports and the other way round but no it should not have a lot of stoppages like American Football. Ever how all the stoppages they will try and do small adverts to make more money 💰. I'm not much of a Football fan but I believe it's 1 of the most enduring sports and should keep a lot of the normal rules.

More rule suggestions. Which ever fan gets hit by the ball when a shot goes over can be subbed in Goalkeepers are allowed to handle the ball outside the box if they hold their breath Coaches are allowed to impede apposing players on the touch line Four 15 minute quarters Goal keepers are allowed to not only come off their line for penalties but charge the penalty taker If someone is ruled to be diving they have to change places with the keeper

The game needs rules to combat diving theatrics, time wasting, and low scoring games. The game needs post-match yellow cards for diving, 30 sec time rule to make a sub, and more points awarded if you win by 2 or more goals.

I like the 5 min suspension for yellow cards. I'd add 20 min for a red (if it's a 60 min match) and if not sufficient time left in game for serving the full suspension time, then the player serves it in next game before being able to enter the match. Game clock idea is good. However, unlimited substitutions? That's not possible unless using whole lines (all players except goalkeeper, like in hockey), it would slow the game down to a crawl. There has to be a subs limit per game, 5 sound good. Also, count additional assists - if applicable. A portion of goals are scored by direct passes between 2 or more players before the goal is scored. Counting only 1 assist if there's for example 3 of them leading to a (team) goal is not right.

The sports needs some changes. If a team scores a goal they shouldn't allowed to hold on to the ball just to waste time. If a team has the ball longer than 1-2 minutes the other team should have equal opportunity to even try to score and equalize the game.

I think penalty kicks in regular time should be, you get one shot, if it's saved, missed or hits post/crossbar, that's it. Goalie kick. No rushing for the rebound etc. That's garbage.

I think a sin bin makes perfect sense to give yellows more weight. But I'd increase the time in the bin to 10 or 15 minutes. Unlimited substitutions also make sense so all squad players can get match time and so managers can experiment with different combinations of players and formations. As for the other proposals I don't see the point of them, although I'm not saying they're necessarily bad ideas. Stopping the clock though makes sense to me since it would mean everyone would know how much time is actually left to play instead of it being at the ref's discretion. I'd like to see all cynical fouls where the player has no intention to get the ball (or can't even reach the ball) get a red. And all dives get a yellow. At the moment refereeing is very inconsistent. I'd also like to see the off-side rule relaxed a little so that there has to be clear space between players before a player is ruled off-side. Being a millimetre off-side and having play stopped ruins promising attacks.

I like the idea of a yellow also carrying a timed penalty. Near the end of the game a yellow card is meaningless. At least force them to play a man short for five minutes. It might be a deterrent for the tactical fouls. Or at least make them more costly.
Drew Peacock
Drew Peacock 10 dager siden
Even a red at the end of a game could be meaningless since a side could just hold the ball and time-waste until the whistle is blown. In the case of serious cynical fouls, how about a red card AND a penalty regardless of where the foul is committed on the pitch?

I love the yellow card -power play rule and also the unlimited substitutions, it would increase goals and then play on the pitch. The rest are terrible. -note: the unlimited substitutions would have to be in pairs for each team and cant discrupt the play so the team taking players out would have to take the player in play out first as play continues. Also it would be only 22 players per team per match. Who are able to play.

Stopping the clock is a very good suggestion, the most positive one out of all. Surprised the "experts" didn't like that one. Five minutes for yellow cards could be a good idea but not for every yellow card.

People are acting like these rules are at pro level. If clearly says youth level which will make the game more adapted to their level. I’ve coached youth soccer and they already have unlimited subs in league. And kick ins instead of throw ins let them get that many more touches on the ball with their feet per game. Also at youth level depending how far down you go, younger kicks can’t take proper free kicks, yet again allowing dribble ins allowing more touches on the ball. I think it’s cool.
