With this VAR nonsense we should just go back to the daylight rule.

I think it should probably be called if both feet are beyond the last defender.
That's a clear advantage on the attackers part.
If they are disagreeing they are wrong... Armpit is not your arm or handA lot of people have been disagreeing with that over the last few days.
And the whole basis for that disagreement is over the belief that the one of the factors of the offside rule is whether it's a body part you can score with and that has caused the confusion when in fact there is no mention of that in the rules that I can see.
If I am mistaken and there is a specific reference to the illegality of scoring with your hand or arm as being the reason for its inclusion in determining whether a player is offside then please show me where it is because I can't see any reference to it at all.
Sounds like that could work. Would be worth a trial at least.Graham Souness was saying on tv yesterday that he thinks the law should be that the attacker has to have a single part of the body onside. You would still get the marginal calls but it would make it easier to see and would lead to more goals being scored/not disallowed.
This will lead to attackers hanging their arms as far back as possible when breaking forward. This will look odd as fuckWenger is pushing for a new offside rule as part of his new role within Fifa.
The new role would mean that for a player to offside you would have to have your entire body in front of the defender. If you have a foot, elbow, shoulder etc behind the defensive line you would still be classed as on side.
I'm.......Kinda okay with that.
