#1297: ShirtSwap

Today’s invention is a new rule for professional soccer.

On committing a yellow-card offence, players would be forced to swap positions with a randomly chosen team-mate (or even one chosen by the opposition captain, the player fouled or the opposition crowd).

That might have the effects of reducing player specialisation and cutting the frequency of rule-breaking by prima donna players.

One Comment:

  1. Might be too hard to police, unless limited to a single swap with the goalkeeper. How about insisting offenders wear a weight belt for a variable period?
