Limit the number of passes.
I think rugby league does something like this,

Rugby league limit the number of tackles to 6 then you turn the ball over to the opposition which normally leads to a big punt down the field on the 5th tackle. Not sure about passes.

Is it just me or are there a lot of fisting the ball over the bar lately?

Jaysus, but itís an abomination.

And while theyíre at it, get rid of throwing the ball into the net. It should be closed fist only.
For once I agree 100% with a Benny comment :o
Those 2 handed "pushes" into the net are probably technically throws while hand throwing the ball over the bar is a disgrace.
Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

It limits the number of phases. A phase ends with a completed. Same purpose as the shot clock. Canít see how it could work operationally in football.

Incentivise team to get the ball forward and risk losing the ball. Generally speaking the more times the ball crosses halfway in a forward direction the better the quality game.

Mandate teams to keep a specified number of players in the attacking half. Itís been said before but never tried. I think there is something in it

The high number of fisted points was alluded to by McConville last Sunday night

Alluded to in a positive way, or in a negative way?

He didnt like it at all - the Gooch seemed to agree with him.

It could have been more they were both pissed off attackers werent going for goals when that close to the nets

Youíre always agreeing with me. You just donít like to admit it  ;)


While weíre at it... players kicking frees from the hands from 14 yards out, straight  in front of the goals. Oh Sweet jaysus, that is brutal looking. Itís like watching u-8ís playing.

Agree 100% but what can be done to stop teams putting 15 bodies the ball. You have managers paid 100s of euros a session and half their players cant kick a ball 30 yards. All hand passes along with parking the bus.

That's all we need now a game obsessed with not counting steps and counting passes!
