so, fifa uefa, etc. are pushing the 'fair play' stuff around a lot.

if they are serious why doesn't football become self -efereeing. some sports are even to the highest level, like ultimate frisbee.

I think it'd be quite interesting. every foul or goal kick (or goal) or whatever would be called by a player, and if there are any disagreements teams have to discuss it till they find a solution. you could issue every player with a book and a yellow and a red card too.

I think the standard of sportsmanship in professional football is very low, this would make it a lot better.

Interesting idea. People playing in the park with their mates do it that way, and it works. But they probably wouldn't do it because it would end up being a bit ridiculous really.
