If it was up to you, which rules would you bring into the game, and which would you scrap? Are offsides an unnecessary nuisance? Should players really be booked for taking their shirt off? And who exactly should be allowed to complain to the referee?

I would get rid of walls for free kicks. If there people were behind the ball when the foul was committed why can you have four men in a wall and everyone else marking up?
I don't understand how the defending team is so well looked after when a foul has happened.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

I'd bring in that you can only support a team that you've actually seen play a home game.

I'm in a more comfortable position than most Australians supporting an English team then :lol: :lol:

I'm a fan of the captains only thing, the rushing of the referee is something I despise.

If we really want to nail the dissent - put a camarea on the ref and make it clear that retrospective action will be taken against those that act in an unacceptable fasion (including referees). It would stop overnight, trust me.

None of those listed, most of which seem to be based on making it easier for TV.
And by the by, football doesn't have rules, it has laws, a semantic distinction some find important.

Only three options allowed, but the ones I think would improve the situation are all the first six and maybe the moving the ball forward one. Like K says, I don't see why the team who committed the foul get so many privileges in free-kick situations.

Retrospective punishment for diving is a big one - as is actually enforcing the existing rule of yellow cards for diving. It really bugs me when referees see and acknowledge dives yet take no action. They don't need to stop play, but they can certainly show a yellow at the next stoppage as they normally would following an advantage being played.

Only the captain being allowed to speak to the referee would make a big difference not only to how the games are played, but to the viewers' enjoyment, too. A lot of people find it very offputting when Chelsea or Barcelona or whoever yet again swamp the referee at the slightest perceived wrong.

And as the biggest problem with video technology is that one risks the game becoming too stop-start, then the suggestion that there are a limited number of reviews available, as in cricket, is a good one; it should be more consistently and universally implemented than in cricket, though, as the system in that sport is hampered by changing from series to series and country to country.

One rule I would also introduce is penalty goals for, eg, handballs on the goalline. It wouldn't happen too often but it'd prevent miscarriages of justice like the famous Suarez handball v Ghana.

And also - any player going down injured must leave the pitch for at least three minutes for treatment. That'd hopefully reduce the practice of feigning injury to get opponents into trouble.

I think there's definitely room for an "orange" card somewhere.

I thought it would make people choose the laws they really want rather than just agreeing to all or most of them. Because 90% would help the game no end.

I'd like to see a change in the time keeping, and a move to the American Football/ Basketball model where, if the ball isn't actually in play, the clock stops. A very quick end to the thirty seconds for every Pulis run team to take every throw in, goal kick etc and also the 90-120 seconds we lose for every free kick where a wall is built. The ball is actually in play for only around 55 minutes anyway - let's make it an hour and stop the time wasting.

Here's another suggestion: stop giving the goalkeeper a free kick any time any attacking player dares to challenge him for a high ball.

A proposal to scrap 45-minute halves is to be looked at by football's lawmakers to deter time-wasting.

Instead, there could be two periods of 30 minutes with the clock stopped whenever the ball goes out of play.

Lawmaking body the International Football Association Board (Ifab) says matches only see about 60 minutes of "effective playing time" out of 90.

The idea is one of several put forward in a new strategy document designed to address football's "negativities".

I hope not. I'd rather watch a longer game with some dead time.

You still get the dead time. It's just not a part of the 'active' game. They can 'waste' as much time as they like - it's not going to achieve anything.
