    If you have not seen the IFAB 2017/2018 LOTG changes the link is below. There are 43 changes (if I counted correctly) with most being changes to wording, but there are actual changes to substitutions, offside, and fouls/misconduct along with some other laws. There is now wording that addresses youth games. Substitutions have been changed from 3 to 5 substitutions per game at all levels expect the top level.

    I also included the link to the guidance for a temporary dismissal (player having to sit out after a yellow card for a short period of time). I wonder if US Soccer will adopt this change. This would be a good tool to use in the older youth games to calm down players that are cautioned. 8-10 minutes sitting out to help them calm down.

    Would this be similar to a YC in high school? I kind of like that the YC player has to sit out for a few minutes.

    In high school the cautioned player leaves the pitch and, at the coach's option, a substitute may be sent on. (I've never had a coach not put in a substitute but it is an option.)
    The IFAB guidelines do not allow a substitution for the temporarily dismissed player until the "sin bin" time has expired.

    Referee now can call Offside whenever he/she feels like it, and it doesn't matter if it actually happened or not.

    That's not a change.
