Firstly, lets congratulate the FA for publication of WF Laws of the Game and their recommendation that WF competition organisers adopt them. Whatever we do in our own backyard when we put jumpers down for goalposts is unaffected.
The FA’s take on the Laws doesn’t surprise me; they have to fit WF (and its underlying philosophy) into the rest of the Game & maintain the principals of the Laws overall. I suppose I was expecting a little more on the walking and contact aspects.
WF is much MORE than Football without running. The cynic in me could say that the FA have sanctioned a game that has to be played below 6 feet high with one foot on the ground at all times, but with everything else we see on MOTD.
Anyways, I’ve never played in any tournaments, only a couple of competitive “friendlies’, so it’s of no consequence apart from wishing WF to continue in a positive fashion.
So its back to our own pitch, discuss stuff, maybe experiment, maybe adopt & adapt, and then observe what occurs tournament wise.
On a technical matter;- I see nowhere in the Laws to prohibit an attacker entering the penalty area (its only mentioned in the Player’s Guide) or the penalty for entry.
