But where this ends up is that - for example - if a player makes a tackle and in doing so makes his opponent fall over, is it a foul? If handball is subjective, so is whether you got the ball or not. It just goes on and on and on until "taking a risk" applies to just about anything on the field and is potentially penalised to the extent you end up not doing it.
Both the offside and this new handball rule are stupid beyond stupidity.
For offside why not bring back the rule that there must be day light between the attacker and last player? All this bollocks of a toe been offside is ludicrous.
You can't have a situation where you give away a handball when you're not even looking in that direction - as Dier did yesterday.
The Premier League really are making a total cock-up of the situation.
I might well have paid a fiver to watch my club [Liverpool] playing but there is o way I am paying £15 to watch a single match.
Dream on PL.
