    Extra rules -
    1. Moving your jumper along to make the goal smaller is a tactic to be used on every occasion possible.

    2. Anything above neck height at our end is "over"

    3. 12 foot high is "in" the other end.

    4. Never, ever, cry if the bricks rip your leg open.

    5. if your mom calls you in for tea, you are allowed to be deaf

    The ONLY rule change that could make women's football even remotely popular.

    and what about?


    * If it goes over a fence, whoever kicked it has to get it. Even if it's at the witch's house.

    * Any player is entitled to give a running commentary on their own performance, usually when on a solo dribble.
    He takes on one, he takes on two, he shoots! - Ooooooh, post!

    There were no such things as plastic bottles so I would change rule 7 to read "tin cans filled wit rocks to get the weight right"...

    And the kids today think they have it tough!

    Compulsory to shout 'Nutmeg!!' at the top of your voice as you put the ball through the legs of an opponent. (Not so clever in sunday morning park football.  Liaible to put your teeth at risk).
