IFAB nearly gets one right, UEFA gets it all wrong
Well, well -- how about this? Had to happen some time, I suppose, so here we are: I find myself in agreement with an IFAB decision. At least, partially so.

"I don't think what's being called 'free agency' is very advantageous for the players. You look at our league where guys sign one or two-year deals and then are able to go back out and test the market with any team in the world. That's free agency, in my opinion, but they agreed to it. That's their business and we wish them well."

-- NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson, whose league offers free agency for players out of contract, following an agreement by MLS to offer limited free agency to its players for the first time. (SBI Soccer)
