Peter Babbage of Hjorring , Denmark asks...

I have become a little confused with what constitutes dangerous play. I am aware that some incidents may be a matter of opinion. For instance a player slides in studs first. Even if he gets the ball, surely it is still dangerous. The same with a high...

Tim Peters of San Antonio, TX USA asks...

I had a defender in the penalty box make a high kick while trying to clear the ball with another player challenging. The referee blew the whistle and pointed to the penalty spot, I said why is it a PK, dangerous play should be a indirect kick.

Brian Lutke of Whistler, BC Canada asks...

Jason of La Crosse, WI USA asks...

An attacking player takes a shot on goal and the ball is prevented from going into the goal by a defender (who isn't the keeper) who deliberately knocks it away with her hand.

Randy Knecht of West Chester, OH United States asks...

Along the same lines of this question the Goalie tried to punt the ball and missed it, rolled down her leg. She did not pick it up again but did kick it and was called for an indirect free kick. This did not seem right to me and can't find a rule whe...

Law 12 - Fouls and Misconduct 5/6/2019

Peter Babbage of Hjorring , Denmark asks...
