By far the worst innovation in recent memory. In itself it is a terrible idea because the punishment is fantastically disproportionate to the "mistake". It was introduced for a weak reason because the prevalance of the problem it ostensibly was designed to prevent was relatively non-existent in the first place. And it's so broad as to punish things completely unrelated to the original motive. Not to mention that it turns golden point into a field-goal-a-thon. But the by products are becoming more and more annoying now. Who in their right mind actually thinks the dramatic rise in mid-field bombs is a good thing? It is so prominent and so fucking boring. And this has come about because playmakers are afraid, and rightly so given the extreme punishment, of kicking it dead. Tactical mid-field kicking has been eroded. How often do you see last tackle kicks for just this side of the corner post or attempts to pull it up in the in-goal and trap the fullback from 50m out, as compared to 5 years ago? There are essentially only 4 kicks in the modern game now. The grubber, cross-field bomb, mid-field bomb and the punt. Terrible, terrible rule imo.
