Wow, a LOT more law changes than just the deliberate handling.
Dropped ball are not to be contested, but at the foot of a player from the team that last touched it, OR the goalkeeper if it is dropped in his own penalty area.
Changed the coin flip to be more complicated and strategic.

Here is ESPN's version:

Summary from the IAFB with reasoning behind some of the changes

http://static-3eb8.kxcdn.com/documen...t_a_Glance.pdf

One more change that has not been mentioned is:

•If the referee is about to issue a YC/RC but the non-offending team takes the free
kick quickly and creates a goal-scoring opportunity, the referee can delay the YC/RC
until the next stoppage if the offending team was not distracted by the referee

That goes against the standard that a card may not be given after play is restarted, which then creates a "when will he give that card out?" after successive fouling.
However, I understand why they are implementing it, and that is because of another (perhaps unwritten) standard: no team should gain an advantage for breaking the laws. A player is fouled in order to delay the attack, so that defenders have time to reset.

Could make refereeing a little more difficult than it has to be.

I don't really look forward to using cards against coaches next year. I do not look forward to doing the additional paperwork. I used to get away with an unwritten-up warning, but now it will be an official caution.

This one about referee-ball contact:

Quote:
If the ball touches the referee (or another match official) and goes into the goal, team possession changes, or a promising attack starts, a dropped ball is awarded
Seems reasonable. Referee should not be in the way, ideally.

For goal kicks:
Quote:
Opponents must remain outside the penalty area until the ball is in play.
So, 12 yards instead of 10. Interesting.

They also kinda defined a "wall" for you:

Quote:
When there is a ‘wall’ of three or more defenders, the attackers are not allowed within 1m (1 yd) of the wall; an attacker less than 1m (1yd) from the ‘wall’ when the kick is taken will be penalised with an indirect free kick

Attackers standing very close to, or in, the defensive ‘wall’ at a free kick often cause management problems and waste time. There is no legitimate tactical justification for attackers to be in the ‘wall’ and their presence is against the ‘spirit of the game’ and often damages the image of the game.

Good to see that there. Two's company, three's a wall.

I disagree completely with the statement on no tactical justification for attackers being in the wall. The point is to obscure the view of the keeper, and move out of the way when the ball is struck providing a flight path that was not immediately available prior to being in play. E.g., it's a deliberate attempt at confusion. A secondary factor is that it provides obstacles for the defending team to go around in the event of a rebound.

I agree defenders shouldn't be able to force themselves into the middle of the wall to create a gap as such, but they should certainly still be allowed to tack on to the edge.

Bump, for implementation for this season.
ESPN has a columnist asking himself stupid questions, and answering them. Nice gig, if you can get it.

https://www.espn.com/soccer/english-...loffside-rules

For the new "wall" law, I've seen attacking players be near enough to the wall to be an offense, only for them to run off of it before the kick is made. I've also seen attackers line up 1 meter in front of the wall.

Refereed my first matches with the new laws this past weekend. No con-TRO-versies requiring the enforcement of the new laws.

I don't think Gab himself is supplying the stupid questions, beyond just relaying what he's heard thus far.
