Merger[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

I suggest merging all of the different methods of re-starting play with this article as they are all related and the articles on their own are they not really of a good quality or quantity in terms of information available information.--Lucy-marie (talk) 00:05, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Oppose, a brief look at corner and penalty makes it look like the merged article will be huge. MickMacNee (talk) 14:49, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Some of the content overlaps between the larger articles and some of the articles are too long at the moment. The merger would not be a "Text-Dump" merger, it would be a complete re-write of the articles, consolidating information in one easy to read article.--Lucy-marie (talk) 15:08, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Perhaps post this to WP:football? MickMacNee (talk) 23:33, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Oppose. No need - the Corner kick article is large enough and has good illustration. It should stand on its own two feet. The Rambling Man (talk) 13:10, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
Oppose. The articles are long enough and re-writing them will effect in loosing significant informations covered by those 83.31.106.162 (talk) 19:33, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
Oppose. Direct free kicks, penalty kicks and corner kicks are all important phases of football matches in themselves and should have separate articles. Jmorrison230582 (talk) 20:36, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
The articles are more than stubs, and can be improved. Penalty kick (football) and corner kick at least can be improved, the main problem with them is the lack of references, I don't think the articles are too long. Also most of these are separate laws. I think the indirect and direct free kick articles should be combined into one article about free kicks, and maybe dropped-ball combined into ball in and out of play, but the others should stay separate. --Snigbrook (talk) 20:48, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Oppose There are different circumstances in which each applies and it would make no sense to include them under an umbrella term no one's likely to ever use or search for.Awotter (talk) 00:23, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Comment- how about having each one redirect to the specific section rather than having a huge disparity of on information by having loads of separate articles.--Lucy-marie (talk) 19:07, 20 August 2008 (UTC) Elijah eversley
