Level 4 Referee
If the law means what I think it means, it's a poor law change - especially since a send-off results in a team only playing short for two minutes. In ice hockey, an infraction on a breakaway results in a penalty shot. I completely agree that this law will result in cynical, professional fouls occurring much more regularly in futsal. It also increases the possibility of injury.If the goalkeeper is in front of the goal, you can't have a DOGSO. That's and interesting one. Encourages defender to foul from behind in a one on one situation.
And for lock-in, ball has to be on the line. Back to the old way.
