      Handball Rule

      I think this is something that needs to change.

      Seeing defenders run with their hands behind their back is actually putting them at a disadvantage. Let alone embarrassing.

      I don't think there was an issue with a plethora of handball issues plaguing the football world where fans and players alike were clamoring for a rule change. In fact, I think a lot of unwarranted handballs are being given an causing more confusion.

      Am I the only one here?

      The refs, VAR etc need to remember what constitutes ball to hand.

      Far. But i feel like now we've all be taught that any time the ball strikes a hand it's worth a shout. The rule needs to be more clear ASAP. As it may ruin an entire season

      The rules around handball could change, but lets face it, it won't make the slightest bit of difference. The standard of officiating in the Premier League over the last few seasons has been nothing short of a complete shambles. Right now I'd say the English officials are right up there with the worst. VAR was supposed to make the game better and make the job easier for the officials but all it's done is highlight just how bad they actually are. The inconsistencies are shocking. So we can change the handball rule, you could get rid of the handball rule entirely and they would still make a mess of it.
