So...the thing on passbacks.

Clinic with FIFA2 discussion and the "passback" was discussed. He strongly advocated that this be treated more via Law 18 than Law 12. Law 18 is the unwritten law of "spirit of the game." He essentially said to not give one team a huge advantage over something that did not really disadvantage them.

So if a full back, not under pressure passes the ball to the keeper who has a brain fart and picks the ball up, with nearest attacker 30 yards away, should the ref give the other team a free kick 13 yards from the goal? Not from me. So essentially, unless the keeper gets the ball in the hands to prevent a clear potential turnover/goal scoring on. If they bitch... "you want free kick from that you better be pressuring the keeper not standing at midfield..."

If I see this being abused, then Law 18 again and a warning to keep. Anyway, if I gave every foul and card players/fans wanted the game would resemble an American football game with all the stopping and starting and we would finish with 2 moms playing the other teams assistant coach.
