whats wrong with football/soccer?
what the one thing you hate the most?
i am not talking in israel. the football association. ah.., rotten. but that’s not the topic of this post.
Lior Z my friend first whispered it to me 20 years ago:
what if offsides rule in football(aka soccer) would be scraped?
at first i thought it was sacrilegious,
then fell in love with it
Sagy my brother has “proven” to me that it would be a bad change.
years have passed, the quarrel continuous in a way just Sagy and i can argue.
my point is this:
- why let the referee(s) destroy the game? many games have wrong offside calls. there is no way a human can call offside situations correctly. the eye is just slower than the ball
- i believe it would increase goal rate. if this is correct, fans would like it better
Sagy, to my surprise disagreed many years ago, and true to his color, he still disagrees
he just wrote Kevin, our college friend and me, that:
“You might get what you have been asking for, see http://goal.com/en/news/745/fifa/2010/03/02/1814268/sepp-blatter-consults-hockey-official-as-fifa-ponder-changes.”
“For the record, I think that scrapping the offside rule will hurt the game, at the very least, teams will keep more players behind the ball and might even have 1-2 player stay all the way back at all times.”
let the change occur
