    Yes. Saw a few pairs of referees discussing whose rules were to be applied.
    One always a bit more adamant than the other.

    I don't really understand this kind of sport as it looks very aggressive, but from a young age I started watching it with my dad because he likes it. He always follows when are the next matches organized on a soccer live score website. In the last game, the Rossi of Santa Maria Novella beat the Azzurri of Santa Croce 8-7, the match was exciting.

    If high school, college, and professional football in America was played by these rules some of their games might actually become interesting enough waste time watching once or twice a year.
