A practical proposal for penalties

“When you watch football you hope that the game flows, the referee knows what he/she is doing and there’s nothing really hideously unfair going on. That’s what FIFA are there for – to make the game better; like stopping the keeper picking up back passes or allowing a player who’s offside not to be offside, if you know what I mean. So why then haven’t they sorted out penalties? If ever there was a case of the punishment not fitting the crime, this is it. Something barely discernible happens and before you know it the game’s turned on its head.” (WSC)
