But, the. Supporters on the correct decision would be more appreciative of the VAR?There are a lot of rules from rugby that I think are needed in football, most importantly time stoppages, sin bins and "blood subs".
Sadly VAR is the one we have adopted, and I'm yet to see the benefits of that within this sport. 6 matches into the WWC, and each has been subject to at least one disallowed goal, insanely miniscule offside call or highly debateable hand-ball decision, which could arguably have gone either way. I only see this as something to aid the billion-dollar betting industry (as you can bet on absolutely anything these days, not just the final score) and serve as some sort of dramatic entertainment for people watching at home. Serves nothing but disruption to the people actually at the game.
Have the linesperson mark the point of where the throw in is to be taken and stand one meter in front of the mark.Reduce matches to 80 minutes, but stop the clock when the ball goes dead. We'd get a hell of a lot more actual play, timewasting would be a thing of the past, and everyone (crowd, managers, officials, players) can see exactly how much time is left. No more 'Fergie-time', no more managers who seem to not understand the word 'minimum'!
If a player 'steals a few yards' at a throw, rule it a foul throw and award a throw to the opposition.
Problem here is that you've just introduced two subjective adverbs into the definition.IMO handball should be when a player purposely moves their hand towards the ball, or if it is in a completely unnatural position, e.g. well above their head when attempting to block a shot.
