In the aftermath of Norway's defeat to Bulgaria, the Norwegian coach Lagerbäck voiced his concerns over effective playing time. In the second half against Bulgaria, only 24 minutes were counted as effective playing time. The rest is time wasted by players rolling on the floor etc. He also argued that players should be carried off the pitch when they are "clearly" that injured. To add to the point, the ref added five minutes to those 24 minutes lost of playing time. Does he have a point? Should football do like handball and ice hockey where they freeze the clock when the ball is out of play or there's an injury? It would perhaps take away the theatrical lying on the floor looking like a Howitzer blew off both your knee caps. I think I somewhat agree with him. If a team is up, you can see most teams time wasting after 60 minutes, but when did ever a referee give a yellow for time wasting that early on? There are so many simple things the refs could do to get rid of these time wasters, but it only gets worse.
