Another year passes by and another opportunity to reflect.
2017 has been quite the up-and-down. There’s a lot to be proud of and a lot to be disappointed about. Ultimately I lean towards disappointment because I didn’t give football the full-attention it has afforded in past years. Nevertheless, it progressed more than I could have hoped for while I emotionally neglected it for the most part. At least that’s the way I felt.
In a ground-breaking move, the FIFA Laws of the Game is out earlier than ever before; April 13th.
Why you ask?
Great question. I’ve held off on paraphrasing FIFA articles promising some of the changes earlier this year. These will change the way we think about the game. Simply because it ain’t real until it’s on paper. That day is today.

Not to mention a new design choice for the pages was selected making it a nice change for readers.

So in rather a completely unexpected but pleasant surprise, the new Laws of the Game is out today. Ordinarily it comes out on July 1st but they released it early in order for it to be in effect for the FIFA World Cup.
The new Laws of the Game don’t take effect for any running competitions now ordinarily but would for any starting after today.
