The offside and Hand ball rules just show why we need a shake up of the rules. For example :- In Fifa's Laws of the Game 2005, Law 12 says a free-kick or penalty will be awarded if a player "handles the ball deliberately (except for the goalkeeper within his own penalty area)". Page 67 of the document gives "additional information for referees, assistant referees and fourth officials". It adds: "Referees are reminded that deliberately handling the ball is normally punished only by a direct free-kick or penalty kick if the offence occurred inside the penalty area. "A caution or dismissal is not normally required." However, the document fails to describe what constitutes deliberate handball, which places the responsibility firmly on the referee and referees' assistants. that to me is as clear as mud, and i have no idea whats offside anymore, offside rule is perfect for refs/linesman to make mistakes. we should have simple, easy to follow rules and then we can enjoy our drink after the match instead of all banter sepp blatter wants us to have!
