Offside Rule to be Re-Worded to Avoid Misinterpretation: The Nightly EPL

offside Offside Rule to be Re Worded to Avoid Misinterpretation: The Nightly EPL

Soccer is a simple game with very few rules, which is one of the reasons we love it so. But bring up the topic of offside and whether a footballer is interfering with play or not, and it gets complicated. Thankfully, next month, soccer’s ruling body plans on making a change to simplify the rules.

According to The Independent,

As it stands, the ruling states a player is judged to be interfering by “clearly obstructing an opponent’s vision or movements, or making a gesture or movement which in the opinion of the referee deceives or distracts an opponent”.

FIFA’s proposed new wording drops any reference to a referee’s opinion, simply stating: “a player is judged to be interfering by ‘clearly obstructing an opponent’s vision or challenging an opponent for the ball”‘.

The new wording should make it easier for a player in an offside position to be judged as not interfering with an opponent.

    I hope and pray that Gazza is able to get clean and stay clean once and for all. It is very sad to see someone as gifted as Gazza was have their life fall apart in the way that his has. I am not making any excuses for Gazza because we are all responsible for actions. I am just afraid of how all this might potentially end. Something things are bigger than football this is one of them.
