What if international breaks were lumped into the end of the season? You could put weekend games into those empty slots.Makes the off season much longer if your club doesn't play in Europe.

From the NY Times.LONDON — Representatives of seven of the world’s richest soccer teams, including Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid, visited FIFA on Wednesday for a private meeting aimed at winning the clubs in the increasingly fractious battle to set up a new multibillion-dollar world club championship.
The group also included the English champion Manchester City, Italy’s Juventus, France’s Paris Saint-Germain and the perennial German champion Bayern Munich.
The seven clubs invited to the meeting had combined revenues of more than $4 billion in 2017, and they command a massive global fan base that would be critical to making FIFA’s secretive discussions about the new tournament, code-named “Project Trophy,” a success.
They met one day after the president of UEFA, Aleksander Ceferin, wrote to FIFA’s president, Gianni Infantino, questioning the wisdom of selling an expanded version of FIFA’s annual Club World Cup to a consortium led by Japan’s SoftBank, which runs the world’s largest technology investment fund. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are among the fund’s biggest backers.
The point of it is to stamp out fake injuries. Letting teams put the ball out a 2nd time to let someone on doesn't help. Would be good to disadvantage the side with the player off because it'll just be real injuries where players stay down needing treatmentThat's their prerogative. I don't see how picking a random number out would serve the game any better.
the retrospective ban is already in and i'm all forDon't think it's unpopular, but if you're found diving - in game or retrospectively - it should be a red with a three game ban.
How often has a fake injury genuinely worked for any team? Honestly don't think it's even worth worrying about.The point of it is to stamp out fake injuries.
