Inexplicably, FIFA have ignored 10 essential rule changes I very carefully set out in green crayon a few weeks back. I think the following would improve the game immensely. Add your thoughts below/ Suggestions for other sports welcome
1. To reduce time wasting the number of substitutes available should reduce across the second half, with 3 available until the 60th minute, then 2 until the 70th ending with 1 for the last 10. Reset to 3 for extra time dropping again every 10 minutes.
2. To broaden the appeal of the game penalty shoot outs to be replaced by a player dance off, judged by the ref and the lino’s. FIFA to agree in advance the music which for the World Cup would be country related (i.e. UK – The Wurzels, France – Jean Michel Jarre, Germany – Rammstein, Argentina – Madonna)
