I do too, but a lot of people around me don't. That's why I wanna have it on my shelf, so I can stick it up their as* when they argue with me about the rules of football!

Funny how a certain degree of humour can be found in official documents. I haven't read through every single rule, but the wording of some of them caught my eye :geek:

Delaying the restart of play
Referees must caution players who delay the restart of play by tactics such as:
- taking a free kick from the wrong position with the sole intention of forcing the referee to order a retake
- appearing to take a throw-in but suddenly leaving it to one of his team-mates to throw-in
- delaying leaving the field when being substituted
Those are pretty clever ideas :D

Celebration of a goal
While it is permissible for a player to demonstrate his joy when a goal has been scored, the celebration must not be excessive.

The practice of choreographed celebrations is not to be encouraged when it results in excessive timewasting and referees are instructed to intervene in such cases.

A player must be cautioned when:
- he climbs on to a perimeter fence to celebrate a goal being scored
:LOL: I just like the wording of these three

Liquid refreshments
Players are entitled to take liquid refreshments during a stoppage in the match but only on the touch line. It is not permitted to throw plastic water bags or any other water containers onto the field.
I didn't know they had a rule regarding this
++ [ originally posted by Zlatan ] ++
- when a severe injury has occurred e.g. swallowed tongue
:yuck:

Wow. I never knew that the soccer field could vary so much in size. I mean, its a pretty big difference if you play on 45 m width or a 90 m width field

Do anyone know the dimensions of Highburry and Delle Alpi... Just for a comparission.

Sorry I'm not too sure Art, try googling it ;)

is it just me, or does the Nou Camp seem wider than other pitches?

And thats why i think that Arsenal wont have any european succes this year. They are very compact at home, but when they play away games, they struggle.

I wonder how strong Milans or Juves defense would be in Highburry :D
