FIFA needs to use goal line technology and allow coaches, like the NFL, to have replay challenges on goals. If FIFA won’t pop for goal line cameras, at least stick a volunteer behind the net as a goal judge. The NHL has goal judges for all of its games. It is preposterous for FIFA, in soccer’s equivalent of the Super Bowl, to rely upon officials standing twenty or thirty years away to have the final and only say on goals.Allow free substitutions. Even the most ardent soccer fan must admit that play can get pretty ragged in the second half as the players tire. Nothing good accrues to the sport from having fans watch tiring players run around a field. To borrow from hockey again, allow the teams to freely substitute players in and out during the game, even allow changes on the fly. Such a rule would underscore the talent and athleticism of the players. Consider how much more exciting and fast-paced the game would be throughout if it were contested by rested athletes playing on fresh legs. Stop the clock during injuries and goal celebrations. Why leave the amount of lost time during the game to the referee’s discretion? Just stop the damn clock. Delays caused by goal celebrations and injuries prejudice the team that’s behind. How many times have you watched your team be down and lose minute after minute of critical game time to the other team’s players rolling around on the field with exaggerated injuries? There’s no point to making the referee approximate stoppage time which is usually inadequate, just let him stop the clock.Don’t make a red-carded team play short-handed. Isn’t an ejection and free kick punishment enough? Making the penalized team also play short-handed for the balance of the game is giving one foul too great an effect on the final score. The call becomes destiny for the penalized team. The rules should allow the penalized team to substitute in a new player. แจกเครดิตฟรี 

Borrow from hockey. Soccer should create a fixed line on the field. Draw a line ten yards out from the top of the penalty area. Once the ball is advanced over that line, the offsides rule would cease to apply. All passes would be legal. For passes started beyond the line, the offsides rule would still control. This rule would be much easier to call thus reducing critical blown calls. The rule would also increase the excitement of the game through more scoring chances, particularly on sets into the box from out wide. Allow replay on goals. There is nothing more frustrating for a fan than watching a blown call on a score. In soccer, a blown call on a goal is game-changing. Such blown calls strain the patience of hard core fans and turn off new ones. FIFA’s stubbornness and complete unreasonableness on this basic issue only exacerbates fan frustration and anger. People support athletics to be entertained by great athletes, not outraged by bad officiating. If you put on a sporting event and the fan comes away feeling cheated and angry, you’ve failed as a governing body and started the clock on your sports demise in prestige.Technology has given the fan the ability to see the truth about a goal on the screen, whether it be television or smart phone, and the truth is a powerful force. FIFA refuses to employ such technology at great cost to the game. Fans won’t repeatedly swallow a fiction about “keeping the game pure” as justification for not using such technology when the truth is playing out on a screen right in front of them.
