Something needs to be done about time wasting, for sure

I'm all for change if it helps the game. But think they need to hold off on anything too radical for at least a couple of years following GLT and VAR in recent times.

30 minute halfs with the clock stopping when the ball is not in play - my initial reaction​ was no way! It seemed like a big fundamental change to the core of football. 

However, apparently we only see an average of 25 mins of actual football each half currently, when accounting for time wasting and the ball being out of play. 

The new suggestion would lead to more football being played and less of the more annoying aspects of time wasting. 

I'm in favour!

I'm all for stamping out time wasting but I think there are far more methods to be tried first before we change the very fundamentals of the game, such as, greater on-pitch discipline or the introduction of sin bins. Although some efforts have been made to trial these (as with the dissent / crowding of the referee that is commonplace), they are always somewhat half-hearted. If a policy was committed to fully by all parties then maybe we might see some progress, I'd favour that first.

I have no problem with change (hence how I found myself on this website in the first place) when it's for the better but this doesn't seem like it to me as it would radically alter the game - the old adage of using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
