Five things that changed the way we see

Football and innovation tend to go hand in hand. Without technology, its fair to say that the sport would look very different to what is played out in stadia and on TV screens worldwide. Technology and a series of rules introduced through time have changed the sport to what it is today here are five such innovations which have transformed the sport for better or worse:The offside ruleAlmost Tom Glavine Jersey as old as the game itself, the over the decades, and has been amended in order to find the right balance, most recently in 2005. The rule forbids a player to go for a ball while ahead of all the opposing players on the pitch, and has helped to make the game a little fairer.The backpa s rule Similarly confusing to some within Freddie Freeman Jersey the game, the was only created in 1962. It has helped to stamp out cheating by defenders and goalkeepers Deion Sanders Jersey to some degree, consigning tactics such as the infamous Catenaccio to history. How it works is that keepers cannot collect a ball directly from an airborne pa s or throw-in from a teammate.Artificial gra sArtificial surfaces have moved on a great deal since first used a few decades ago. Theyre now in use in colder countries where matches sometimes get abandoned such as Ru sia. A spokesperson from explained why:Technology in artificial gra s has come a long way since the David Justice Jersey late 80s and artificial gra s pitches are now manufactured from polyethylene rather than nylon, this has meant that these new turfs have been approved by FIFA and UEFA.Goal-line technologyIntroduced at the start of the current football season after years of wrangling, this technology is designed to put an end to poor refereeing decisions over whether the ball cro sed the line into the net or not. If it works, it could help to bring yet more fairne s into the game, which is never a bad thing.All-seater stadiaFollowing a report into stadium safety, the advent Dansby Swanson Jersey of all-seater stadia began in the early 1990s. While there are several lower-league and non-league clubs that still have terracing, most teams now only have seats in their stands. Safety and family-friendline s are two major consequences of this move.
