Slide Tackles in Soccer
Slide tackles in soccer should be illegal at all levels of soccer. Why? Because adults are stupid. I played a game earlier this past summer with kids and adults and an adult slid tackled a kid. When I called him for a foul, he actually complained. I was quite amazed that and adult would complain about a slide tackle on a kid, while the kid was hurt. He was about 35 and the kid was about 10. It was a fun game. Slide tackles in professional soccer is encouraging kids and adults to do the same in fun soccer. It's stupid and dangerous. Players should be told to stay on their feet and stop slide tackling, no exceptions. Soccer isn't hockey. I love hockey, but I'm sure soccer fans don't want that.
