Serious question.

For penalty cards, I will never see the point of them except for easy corruption because it puts way too much power into the officials hands and watching the U.S. vs. Portugal match, it's extremely subjective most of the time.

For offsides, it's like hockey and I understand the point of it. However with 10 players on the field past the goaltenders, it's quite hard to keep track of who is ahead of you and at what distance. Friends of mine who have played 7 on 7 tell me often times it's a crapshoot where you just hope it's onside. That's rather discomforting. As a viewer it's much the same.

I'd rather see it without offsides. Or I'd rather see it changed just so we get somewhat higher scoring games instead of 0-0 0-1 1-1 2-1 type of games. It's boring to watch. Baseball is more exciting.

Without offside I think you'd see a lot more "long ball" type play. Centre forwards could pretty much poach freely so defenses couldn't play a high line and eventual you'd just see the midfield area deserted and the ball get launched from one end to the other.


As for the cards, they were originally brought in to help the refs with the language barrier at the world cups, no issue with them. I'd like to see a sin him introduced like in field hockey.

What would the NFL be like without a line of scrimmage? Offsides is an important rule. Have you tried playing even school yard soccer without offside rules? It turns into a massive joke with players just camping in the attacking area.

I think American Football should allow multiple forward laterals in a play.

This is stupid.
