    PR disaster for chelsea?

    Its not just the 6 second rule that seems to have vanished, defenders appear to have a free rein when it comes to holding on to an opponent`s shirt in the penalty area and the attacking side are allowed to block a goalkeeper as much as they like - anywhere else on the pitch and its called obstruction. And I seem to recall that putting your body between an opponent and the ball without making any attempt to touch the ball is also obstruction but players do that all the time when they are trying to shepherd the ball out for a goalkick.
