FIFA to ban religion

FIFA decided to experiment with goal-line technology. But the latest IFAB meeting also resulted in several changes to the wording of the Laws of the Game, e.g.:

“The player’s equipment must not carry any political, religious or personal statements”

i.e.: Of course you earn your money not just by kicking the ball, but by expressing your personality. Your personality as a soccer professional has to be free of politics, religion or personal opinion.

Glory to the game! Maybe in future we won’t be allowed to use the “soccer” label anymore when blogging about sport and spirituality. What a shame!
