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.

"There is no honeymoon. I'll have to take that next year some time. Obviously, I hope all the guests have a good time, but I will have a quiet one. Have I got a curfew? No, I've not got a curfew."

-- England striker Jamie Vardy on being given time off from Euro 2016 preparations to marry fiancee Rebekah Nicholson on Wednesday. Vardy, who already has had to postpone the wedding three times, will miss Friday's warm-up game against Australia. (Daily Mail)
