    As the International Football Association Board (IFAB) prepares to enforce changes to football laws, weve asked Sky Sports Now guests and Premier League managers for their own proposals... Football laws will undergo their most extensive alteration since the introduction of goal-line technology in 2012 this year, with seven key areas subject to change as of June 1.But has the IFAB missed anything? Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher was joined in the Sky Sports News HQ studio by former England defenders Chris Powell and Steve Howey who, along with a host of top-flight managers, suggested proposals they would like to see implemented. IFAB announce law changes The Interntional Football Association Board has published law changes for 2016/17 season IFAB law changes Removal of triple punishment Kicking off backwards Offside free-kicks Injured players staying on pitch Red cards before kick-off Stricter penalty rules Violent conduct without contact We also want to hear your views - leave your suggestions in the message boards below or tweet @SkyFootball...Dermot Gallaghers proposals1. Throw-ins to be taken by the nearest person when the ball goes outDERMOT SAYS: It infuriates me how long it takes to get the ball back in play.2. Halves reduced to 35 minutes with an independent timekeeper stopping the clock when the ball goes out of playDERMOT SAYS: Everybody would know that were going to get 70 minutes of football. I watched some games and Im not sure whether we get an hour of football in some matches. Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher tells us what changes he would make to the laws of football. 3. Ban all substitutions in stoppage timeDERMOT SAYS: Its nearly always a winning team that makes substitutions just to break up the flow of the game. I realise there could be a serious injury so the caveat, for me, would be that if you had to replace a player you could. However, to prevent people manipulating the rule, the player who came off wouldnt be allowed to play in the next game.Steve Howeys proposals1. Punishment for feigning injury/simulationHOWEY SAYS: Moussa Sissoko went down in the box against Tottenham on the final day of the season and referee Anthony Taylor was so unlucky because from his angle it looked like he had been fouled. However, on second view there wasnt any contact from Jan Vertonghen. Perhaps we could look at whether players who have cheated the referee could be punished retrospectively.2. Punishment for players surrounding officials Howey would like to see crowding the referee eradicated from the game HOWEY SAYS: If youve got more than three or four players going around the referee that doesnt help him at all. That has to stop. Normally you would expect just the captain, although that is difficult if the captain is the goalkeeper.3. Clarification of the offside lawHOWEY SAYS: In my career as a defender, if a player was offside they were offside. Now its difficult because of active and inactive players. Back in the day you could push the defensive line up and catch strikers offside, that doesnt happen now. Of course you want to see goals but its tough for linesmen and defenders. If a player is offside he should be offside because, at present, there are differing opinions and decisions week in week out.Chris Powells proposals1. Additional substitutes in extra-time of cup gamesPOWELL SAYS: This could apply to extra-time in general. I watched the League Two play-off between Accrington and Wimbledon and Lyle Taylor was obviously struggling but, because Wimbledon had used their three subs, he couldnt come off. He could have carried on, picked up an injury and missed the final so I feel additional subs would be good.2. Third-placed finish straight to play-off final Brighton were dumped out of the play-offs despite finishing the season third with 89 points POWELL SAYS: If you finish third after 46 games you should go to Wembley. The sixth-place team should play the fifth team in a one-off game at the fifth-placed teams ground because they finished higher and should have the advantage. The winner of that plays the fourth-placed team in a one-off at their ground and then the winner of that plays the third-placed team at Wembley. The handicap is there for wherever you finish in the league and I feel this should happen in the play-offs.Managers proposalsArsene WengerId like to see video introduced for offside. It should happen in a similar way to goal-line technology. It would open up the game and would give an insight to the linesman who could be a bit more permissive. I think it would make many decisions easier. Aaron Ramsey wrongfully had a goal ruled out for offside in Arsenals goalless draw with Liverpool in August Ronald KoemanWe need to use more technology in football because there are still incorrect decisions in games. We can and we need to change that because it would make football fairer.Mark HughesId like an independent timekeeper because its one of those grey areas where, at the end of games, you have no idea what the referee is going to inform his assistant to add on. Id like to have more players on my bench. Thats the first thing I think about. It is important to have the opportunity to change the same players but have more choice. Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri Francesco GuidolinManagers should have one or two time-outs each game. It is an important new possibility to communicate with players during a game.Your proposalsWhat football law changes would you like to see?

Air Max 97 China Wholesale .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again.WEST ALLIS, Wis. -- As the Andretti Autosport teams clogged the qualifying leaderboard, it sure looked as if the fix was in at the Milwaukee Mile. Andretti drivers have won four of the last eight IndyCar races at Milwaukee, and Michael Andrettis marketing group is in its second year promoting the event. So when his son, Marco, jumped to P1 in Fridays qualifying session, followed by all three of his teammates, he could chuckle that perhaps something was awry. "We get extra horsepower here," Michael Andretti joked. In the end, Will Power of Penske Racing prevented an Andretti sweep by wedging himself in the middle of the four Andretti cars. When the field goes green Saturday, it will be Marco Andretti and James Hinchcliffe starting on the front row, followed by Power and then Andretti drivers Ryan Hunter-Reay, the defending race winner, and E.J. Viso. Asked what was up with the Andretti domination, Hinchcliffe had an answer far more entertaining than a claim of extra horsepower. "Pixie dust," Hinchcliffe said. "We were cleaning out the attic at the shop and came upon this little bag, and we spread the dust over all the cars." All jokes aside, its shaping up to be a race for an Andretti driver to lose in Saturdays 250-mile event. Marco Andretti won the pole with a two-lap average speed of 170.515 mph around the mile oval. Its his second career at Milwaukee, and third overall, and he beat Hinchcliffes average of 170.418 for a front row sweep for the Andretti cars. "Thats as good as I could have done," said Andretti, who scoured the qualifying order after his lap. "Im dying to see who is out there who can beat me." Power was third at 170.212, followed by Hunter-Reay and Viso. Sebastian Saavedra was sixth and Tony Kanaan was seventh as Chevrolet drivers swept the top seven spots. Josef Newgarden was the highest qualifying Honda at eighth.dddddddddddd Helio Castroneves, last weeks winner at Texas, qualified 18th. His car failed post-race inspection Saturday night and IndyCar this week fined Penske Racing $35,000 and docked Roger Penske 15 owner points. But Castroneves maintained his lead in the IndyCar Series standings, which is 22 points over Marco Andretti. Marco Andretti, though, has his eye on the winners circle Saturday. Hes finished inside the top seven in seven of the eight IndyCar races this year and is eager to grab his first victory since 2011. "Man, I am so hungry to get the monkey off my back because once I do, I think they (wins) are going to steamroll from there," Andretti said. "Were knocking on the door and thats all weve got to do. Hopefully it will come through." And the pressure is on for Andretti to do it this weekend at Milwaukee as a Fathers Day gift to Michael. "It would be huge, and I told him hopefully this is only part of his Fathers Day gift," Marco said. "We have the car to do it, we have four great shots. I also have to credit Andretti Autosport as a whole, four out of the top five is pretty awesome." Especially considering how far off Hinchcliffe was in both practice sessions Friday. He smacked the wall in Turn 2 in the first session, damaging his car, and was far off of his teammates pace. "Change after change didnt seem to make it any better and it was tough," Hinchcliffe said. "We were scratching our heads wondering what we should do, and our teammates were first, second and fourth, just making us look stupid. We went through the whole car and my head was in the wrong place. "But everybody did a good job. The team did its job in getting the car sorted, and I pulled my head out to forget about practice and here we are." ' ' '
