Hey Geoff Cameron, Please Stop Using Your Platform To Spread Harmful Misinformation

When it comes to his footballing abilities, Geoff Cameron is one of my favorite players of the last two decades.

Off the pitch, however, Cameron is now one of my least favorite players after spreading harmful misinformation on his Instagram account.

No One Understands The Current Handball Rule — At Least We Can Agree On That Much

Players and coaches around Europe are becoming increasingly perplexed by the current handball rule which one has said is best suited to foosball. 

Forwards have seen goals chalked off for almost imperceptible handballs while defenders have conceded penalties for unintentional ones in innocuous situations because their arm was seen as making the body "unnaturally bigger."
