Simple idea to fix soccer:
In basketball, once you cross the center line on offense, you're not allowed to go back unless it's deflected by the defense.
Tell me why applying this rule in soccer wouldn't make the game 100 times more exciting
>in b4 100*0 = 0
I would imagine nobody would be so retarded as to bring their entire team forward but ok.
Sure. Indirect from the spot where the ball is touched on the defensive side of the line.
You would just leave your defenders back behind the line to protect if you really wanted to. I don't really see how preventing backwards passes will lead to more counter attacks.
Because you're assuming that that will lead to more attacking football. More than likely, it would lead to more passes between the defence, baiting the oposition for a counter attack
It would still open the game up to pace babby counter attacks, or overly defensive formations. Think about it, you can't push to many forward because if something breaks down you can't go back to keep possession. So stay do you do instead? Leave 7 behind the line and play hoof ball and hope for the best
