What do you think of the rules of soccer??? Can you think of some new rules that could make the game even better??? Or can you think of rules that you think should be removed????

I think the yellow card for scorers taking off their shirt after a goal should be removed: damn', it's one of the most beautiful things of soccer! It's an expression of joy, so i think the rule should be applied only when there's something of indecent, potentially offending or racist under the official game shirt. The goal line tech should be a good innovation, too: here in Italy the debate 'bout this has started so long, and last year this tech was experimented in a Italy Cup game.

I agree with shyamlal. Scoring a goal must be a moment without restrictions like taking the shirt or celebrating with the fans. For the love of the game I take out the offside rule. More goals will be more people and fans enjoying the game.

I do not agree. I think that taking out the offside rule, the teams will play alot more defencive, because the striker can stand close to the goal. I think instead, there should be a rule like in basketball where the team with the ball has to pass the middle with in a sertain amount of time, that would force the teams to push forward and that can make the teams lose the ball and the opposite team get a contra.

Goal line technology should be used to determine if the ball has passed the line for a goal. Also instant replays for a coaches challenge on a penalty call. These are some things that would make the game more fair imho.

I aggree that goal line technology would be a very good thing. But i don't agree that instant reply's should be used to challenge a penalty call, that would take some of the fun out of the game, we the fans woulden't have that to talk about after the game. I think that replys should only be used in case of red cards to determin how hard the player should be penaltised.
