You'd have teams keeping their defense in their own 18 yard line and rest of the players would have the whole pitch....
Don't think it would work tho.....I think it would just make the smaller teams really park the bus even more

We've already had that rule Snoops. The problem was again down to interpretation. What some refs deemed clear daylight, others didn't. It made sense yes, but the consistency problem quickly arose.

Koscienly for Arsenal clearly in an offside position and wins a penalty. No brainer offside, no flag. Its never ending. Instead of complicating matters with video play back why not just get rid of it? If teams want to leave goal hangers way up the pitch it means they'll be thin on the ground everywhere else which in turn means the others will have to work even harder, and that simply isn't going to happen. Coming up with countless remedies is great, but it cures nothing. Just moves it on to somewhere else. Everything else has been tried in the last 100 hundred years and its still failing miserably. There is still no credible argument to keep it. I think what they should try is bringing the 18 yard box line the whole width of the pitch, but you can only be offside inside it not outside of it. That would cut the problem down dramatically and help the game to keep flowing. And obviously cut down on the amount of piss poor decisions.
