Under such new handball rules, I'm not sure I still want to play as a defender in the Premier League.
You may have done nothing wrong, but you will be punished. What did Ward of Crystal Palace do wrong? (A penalty kick was awarded to Everton.) Where else can he put his hands? The opponent's header flew to his hand from a distance of two yards. He didn't take the initiative to stop it with his hand, but the penalty was still awarded and Crystal Palace lost the game.
This is not the spirit of football. I know the referee is enforcing the rules, but the rules are not right. It's ruining the game, and Crystal Palace coach Hodgson feels that his team has been robbed, which makes sense.
Is it time to tie up all the arms with tight straps? Because this seems to be the only way for defenders to avoid penalties.
