    Players feigning injury to get other players sent off, can now be suspended post game, according to BBC. Of course we all know this rule will not be applied for serial cheaters Chelski or Arse, but on paper it looks absolutely brilliant.

    As usual a great idea that won't be followed up because referees would rather go home and pretend to their fat, ugly wives that Premier League footballers are their friends.

    Hazard?

    She should have know he was only faking and Mourinho's action has confirmed it. His full quote:

    KICKOFF

    The current law says the ball must go forward at kickoff and players have to be in their own half. The rule is being changed to allow the ball to go in any direction at kickoff — as long as it moves.

    PRE-MATCH RED CARDS

    Citing a row in the tunnel between Patrick Vieira and Roy Keane before an Arsenal-Manchester United match in 2005, Elleray highlighted how they could not have been sent off in the event of a full-scale fight. The laws were written at a time before it was custom for teams to line up next to each other in the tunnel before kickoff.

    In future, referees will be able to punish red-card offenses any time after the pre-match inspection.

    Elleray: "(Fighting players) would be banned from playing the match, but both teams would still start with 11 because they would be able to use one of the named substitutes. They would lose a substitute."

    LEAVING FIELD AFTER TREATMENT

    Elleray: "If a player is injured from a challenge which is punished by a red or yellow card, he can have quick treatment on the field of play and does not have to leave. It always seemed unfair that the victim team was down to 10 men and the guilty team has 11 against 10."

    QUICK RETURN

    Elleray: "If a player goes off to change his boots, at the moment he has to wait until the game is stopped and the referee has to go and check his boots before he can play again. Now we are saying his boots or whatever can be checked by the fourth official, the assistant referee even, and (the player can) come back during play."

    GRABBING OPPONENTS

    Elleray: "Two players go off the field of play. One tries to get back on to play the ball, and the other one grabs him off the field of play to stop him going back on. At the moment the referee gives a red or yellow card and restarts with a drop ball, which is clearly wrong. So we will be giving a free kick on the touchline or the goal-line. If it's inside the penalty area, it can be a penalty kick."

    BLOCKING GOALS

    Elleray: "If a (non-playing) substitute at the moment comes on and dives and stops the goal, it's an indirect free kick." And then there is the unlikely but not unforeseen situation in which a team physician comes onto the field during play. "If the doctor does it, it's a drop ball, which again is wrong for football. Their team benefits from breaking the law. So they will become direct free kicks or penalty kicks."

    PENALTY SHOOTOUTS

    Elleray: "If a player gets sent off during kicks from the penalty mark, the other team doesn't also go down to 10. So if it goes all the way through, the guilty team's best player takes a second kick against the innocent team's worst player."

    In future, both teams will be reduced to the same number of kickers.

    Elleray: "We are trying to make sure the laws are fair and support the team that has been offended against and don't reward people for breaking the laws of the game."

    OFFSIDE INCONSISTENCY

    Elleray: "Part of the law book says when players commit an offside offense, you give a free kick where the offense occurred. The other part of the law book says you give a free kick where the player was when he was in the offside position. So a player can actually move 20 yards from being in an offside position ... and it's only the moment he plays the ball that he is penalized. The law tells you to give the free kick in two different places.

    "So in future, the free kick will always be given where he commits the offside offense, even if he's in his own half, because you cannot be in an offside position in your own half, but you can go back into your own half to commit an offside offense."

    LOGO LOOPHOLE

    Club logos will be allowed on corner flags. Elleray: "It happens in the Premier League, but is actually against the laws of the game."

    COMMON SENSE

    Elleray: "We are encouraging referees to referee according to the spirit of the game and to use common sense. ... If you can play the game and there's a minor breach of the law, report it to the authorities and sort it out afterwards. Don't be too black and white in minor areas."

    That means, for example, in the grass-roots game, not abandoning a match if one of the four corner flags is broken.

    Thanks jordinho.
    That offside one is odd. So It is now possible to concede away a free kick for offside in your own half?!

    If I ever see that awarded in the professional game I promise to lay an egg.

    if that ever gets awarded the player dumb enough to have gone back into his own half to retrieve after being offside should be fined a years wages

    I don't get it. How would you be offside in your own half?

    Offside when it was passed, runs back into his own half before he touches the ball.

    They all seem great except the offside one. It says "So in future, the free kick will always be given where he commits the offside offense" which in most cases would punish the defending team i.e. rather than getting a freekick near half way, you get a freekick deep in your own half, where they touch the ball. You would rather have it near half way.

    the offside offense will surely be the player becoming active rather than actually touching the ball though I guess

    With the 'Leaving field after treatment' one I feel it would make more sense if both the injured and the guilty party were to leave the field of play whilst treatment is carried out so that play isn't interrupted.

    too open to abuse, you get tackled by messi, make a meal of it and get treatment for 40 minutes

    Exactly. Becoming active is nearer the goal than when he was first offside.

    Sounds like sensible suggestions to me.

    Did it ever happen (outside of south/central America) that a non playing substitute entered the field to stop a goal from being scored? Or the club doctor? Even Chelski hasn't sunk that low - yet.

    Well, if it's inside the penalty area, they're not off the field, are they?
