Re: World Cup Discussion Thread
Honestly, the lack of scoring doesn't bother me in and of itself. I like the action with or without the goals. The problem I have with the lack of scoring is that it allows teams who handily outplay the other team to walk away with loss far too often. I'm fine with that every once in a while, but it happens regularly because it's just so extremely difficult to actually get one in the net. Preventing that is the only reason I think a little more scoring would be a good thing.
ONe of the best rule changes ever was not allowing keepers to use their hands for balls from their own players' feet. That change was in the midst of my playing days and it certainly changed the way we played the game on the defensive side of the ball.
