'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Football Chiefs Madness

Rules should always been checked and amended as necessary, but talk around the upper echelons of the beautiful game are looking at the biggest shake up of the game ever. Certain aspects of the game have always come into question regarding their worth and merits but the following list is surely just laughable.

1. Allow a window of time (30 seconds) in which a player can 'vent his frustrations' towards the officials. This would give enough time for a player to cool down without fear of a yellow or red card. An official can also use this 'window' to put their opinions across.

2. A new card to work with the red and yellow. A blue card would be given for minor offences like kicking the ball away, leading to a yellow then red.

3. Increase in goal width from 8 yards to 15 metres, resulting in higher scoring games.

4. Adopt the Ice Hockey approach to on the field scraps by standing back and letting the protagonists 'get on with it'. Any player left standing would then be penalised accordingly.

5. Any player who receives a blue or yellow card can effectively 'lose' a card by scoring a goal. For instance if a player receives a blue card but then hits a 30 yard screamer, they would go back to no cards.

6. Use a 'sin bin' for certain infringements. The 'sin bin' should be placed in front of opposing fans but must be fully enclosed.

I think there should also be a new rule brought in this season that if Leeds United score a goal before there opposition has scored at least three,then they should have a member of there team shot on the city hall steps in Manchester by Roy Cropper out of Corranation Street while his lovely "wife" Halley is Shafting Dennis Wise in the Kwik Save car park.

At first reading I thought LUFC1 had written it after a night on the beer - but no, I see not! It's the crazy it might just work!

Nope for once it really wasn't me! In Field Hockey they have a great discipline system: Verbal Warning---> Green Card (nothing happens)----> Yellow Card (minimum 5 minutes off the field "sin binned..can be as long as the umpires decide)----> Red Card (your off, your not coming back, bye bye and 3 game ban instantly.
LUFC1
Oh, obviously you can pick up any card straigth away...e.g. hitting someone in the face with a stick is a straight red ;-)
LUFC1
I actually agree with the sin bin idea of ice hockey - they could try it in the auto windscreen/van hire/paint thingy (they usually try everything else out in that!)
