They've changed the off-side law!

Essentially they've replaced "making a gesture or movement which, in the opinion of the referee, deceives or distracts an opponent" with "challenging an opponent for the ball," in the section interference.

And in the section on gaining an advantage changed; "playing a ball that rebounds to him off an opponent having been in an offside position" for "1: That rebounds, is deflected or is played to him from a deliberate save by an opponent having been in an offside position. 2: A player in an offside position receiving the ball from an opponent, who deliberately plays the ball (except from a deliberate save), is not considered to have gained an advantage."

Apparently, they’ve just changed it again.

According to the latest Guardian football podcast. I didn’t understand a word of it (although i wasn’t really listening).
