Rule of Game
All games have rules. But all rules do not have games. Rules are rules; there is no game and no discrimination. Among all games football is popular game. Some like to play most like to watch football game. World Cup is highest level of football game watched by many people around the world.
Football has its own characteristics. The game is not only a game it teaches many things. It teaches about team work, team leader, cooperation; coordination, skill, knowledge, discipline, assistance, patience and many more. Coaches are there to find weakness in order to strengthen the team. Umpires are there to correct any faults. All these should be within a boundary, within rules and regulations. All the team members including coaches and umpires act as per rules and regulations.
In a game, if authorities play foul game, the team can not perform to the standard. In some places, players are selected on the basis of ‘own’ link and connection not on the basis of ability, capability, knowledge, skill and qualification of the players. The ultimate result is that qualified and able players are discouraged. Game (football) can not perform at a standard level. Such team can not compete with strong team even at the national level; forget about international level – the world cup.
Football is one the many games which involved many players like in an institution having many staff members. Football team can be compared with an institutional team. If there is good team with all the characteristics mentioned above the team can win the game else the team looses the game. So is an institution. Umpire is the chief of the game who play critical role in case of controversy in the game. Same is the case in an institution, the head of an institution plays important and critical role like an umpire in application of rules and regulations without bias. When the Umpire of an institute makes irresponsible decisions with biasness in application of rules and regulation an institution looses its credibility and in the long run an institution looses its existence.
