Soccer's new-look rulebook (Part 2): Making room for the Spirit the Game
Alongside the changes in the organization and wording that David Elleray and his team have brought to the revamped rule book go what I think of as "mood" changes -- the business of modernizing the rules, of making them "more accessible," etc. Tucked away in that category is a time-bomb of a phrase that makes its first appearance in Rule 5, which tells us that referees, in making their decisions, will factor in not only the rules but also the spirit of the game.

"[Chris Wondolowski] just knows how to score goals and his way in and out of the box. He's better than me at that, for sure. That's important as a striker. I think we have different skill sets, and Jurgen [Klinsmann]went with his, which is totally understandable. He's a great player and someone I've looked up to. ... I'm excited for him and excited to watch him."

-- Jordan Morris on Wondolowski, who beat him for a spot on the USA's Copa Centenario roster. (Seattle Times)
