A lot of folks didnt get to vote on europe, and in 1n 1975 I voted out, And everyone Ive spoken to since said out, a swizz i think.

football.
no interfearing with the goalie
no shoulder charges
no tackles
no nothing that made the game of football. THE GAME OF FOOTBALL.

what is this game all about? why do they need supporters, why not just have a direct debit, from my account into theirs. This game is going to be more ruined, than it already is, by KNOBHEADS.

EXCLUSIVE: Offside rule change could cause chaos for new season

By Adam Crafton

PUBLISHED: 10:21 GMT, 1 July 2013  | UPDATED: 16:55 GMT, 1 July 2013  


Premier League football next season could be thrown into chaos as a FIFA amendment to the offside rule has caused concerns among leading officials and could add to further confusion for fans.

The amendment, which has been brought in by the governing body and comes into effect from today sees a considerable change to the wording of Law 11 and alters what assistant referees must take into consideration when deciding whether a forward is ‘interfering with an opponent’ or ‘gaining an advantage’.  


On the surface, the alteration to one of football’s most-talked about and controversial laws appears to reduce the uncertainty – but Sportsmail can reveal that English officials, who met for their annual summer conference this weekend, are privately worried the change will only breed further confusion among players and supporters, placing the spotlight once again on to the officials.

The law change, which was presented to officials at a conference named ‘Realising Your Potential’, omits the ambiguous wording of ‘obstructing the opponent’s line of movements or making a gesture or movement which, in the opinion of the referee, deceives or distracts an opponent’.  

This part of the offside law, referring to what constitutes ‘interfering with an opponent’ had previously been left too open to the subjective interpretation of officials and has now been replaced by ‘challenging an opponent for the ball.’

Less uncertainty should be provided by the clarification of what the assistant referee must consider when judging whether a forward has ‘gained an advantage by being in an offside position’.  


Last season, Sir Alex Ferguson was unhappy after James Milner's opener in the Manchester derby was allowed to stand. The City midfielder's rocket deflected off Michael Carrick and flew into the back of David de Gea's net.

But Ferguson claimed the goal should have been chalked off, as Carlos Tevez - in an offside position - drifted across the Spanish goalkeeper's line of vision at the moment Milner pulled the trigger.

'The first goal, the player is right in front of David de Gea,' said Ferguson. 'There is no way the linesman on that side is giving it but if that is not interference I don't know what is.'

In addition to the already established principles that a forward – should he find himself in an offside position - is offside if a ball rebounds to him off the woodwork or from a rebound to him off an opponent, the new wording also makes clear that a deliberate save or deflection rebounding to an opponent in an offside position means that the linesman must raise his flag.  

The gathering officials were also treated to a demonstration of the new hawk-eye system that will be implemented in the Premier League from the start of 2013-14 season, with referees said to be ‘delighted’ by the introduction of the goal-line technology.  

Meanwhile, some referees have taken the close-season as an opportunity to sharpen up on their fitness, with one official telling Sportsmail that Premier League referee Phil Dowd ‘looked like a new man’ at the London conference after losing almost two stone in a bid to keep up with the rigorous demands of PGMOL bosses.

Last year, Dowd, 50, saw his future thrown into doubt after failing a post-season fitness test but he was allowed to officiate in the Premier League after proving his fitness later on in the summer.


OFFSIDE LAW CHANGE IN FULL

‘INTERFERING’ – what the law used to say

“interfering with play” means playing or touching the ball passed or touched by a team-mate.

“interfering with an opponent” means preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball by clearly obstructing the opponent’s line of vision or movement or making a gesture or movement which, in the opinion of the referee, deceives or distracts an opponent.  

INTERFERING – what the law now says

“interfering with play” means playing or touching the ball passed or touched by a team-mate.

“interfering with an opponent” means preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball by clearly obstructing the opponent’s line of vision or movement or challenging an opponent for the ball.  

GAINING AN ADVANTAGE – what the law used to say

“Gaining an advantage by being in that position” means playing a ball that rebounds to him off a goal post or the crossbar having been in an offside position or playing a ball that rebounds to him off an opponent having been in an offside position.

GAINING AN ADVANTAGE - what the law now says

“Gaining an advantage by being in that position” means playing a ball…

That rebounds or is deflected to him off the goal post, crossbar or an opponent having been in an offside position.
That rebounds, is deflected or is played to him from a deliberate save by an opponent having been in an offside position.
A player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent, who deliberately plays the ball (except from a deliberate save), is not considered to have gained an advantage.

Re-inventing the wheel again. On reasonably good authority I believe that the offside rule was diluted for the '94 WC in the USA. When the term "seeking to gain advantage" was trotted out, the Yanks asked that if a defender deliberately played and attacker offside by stepping forward then he broke that rule and the attacker would be offside innocently so he was being unfairly punished.

Much muttering and scratching of heads so the rule was worked on again for another 10 years or so.
