Some interesting rules......

Initially anyone could handle the ball......

A player shall be entitled to run with the ball towards his adversaries' goal if he makes a fair catch, or catches the ball on the first bound; but in case of a fair catch, if he makes his mark (to take a free kick) he shall not run.


Later, goalkeepers were introduced but they could handle the ball anywhere.....

The strategy of using an attacking goalkeeper came to and end in 1912 when the Football Association introduced a new rule that stated that they could only handle the ball inside the penalty area.


Skrtel would have been happy with this....

The shoulder charge remained an important part of the game. This could be used against players even if they did not have the ball. If a goalkeeper caught the ball, he could be barged over the line.


Or this.....

If any player shall run with the ball towards his adversaries' goal, any player on the opposite side shall be at liberty to charge, hold, trip or hack him, or to wrest the ball from him, but no player shall be held and hacked at the same time.

I think even the dog was called Mac

The team of Macs.........

The team of the Macs back in 1892-93

Back row: Joe McQue, John McCartney, Andrew Hannah, Sidney Ross, Matt McQueen, Duncan Mclean, Jim McBride, A. Dick (trainer).
Front row: Tom Wyllie, John Smith, John Miller, Malcolm McVean, Hugh McQueen.

Liverpool FC president, John Houlding, had put his faith in Ulsterman John McKenna to assemble a good enough team for Liverpool for the club's debut season. Houlding got to know McKenna through the Orange Order and they had struck a firm friendship. McKenna had been known for helping Liverpool's poor people and took a great interest in player's welfare reflected in him becoming the Football League chairman in 1910, staying in the post for no less than 26 years.

Oh, but we couldn't hold and hack at the same time? That's where the line was?!!
I bet Ronaldo would have made a great tennis player.
I think this was 2001, in the Texas state legislature, they were trying to outlaw sodomy, while at the SAME time, trying to repeal the law against bestiality.
So potentially, you couldn't make love in the privacy of your own home, but you'd be able to go down to the local pound & have a good ol LEGAL Texas style dawg fuckin!

Second from right, bottom row, looks a unit.

He's got a head on him like Birkenhead (or even worse, Steve Bruce!) :)
Hat, cap, scarf, or yer badges...
