Another thought I had on football refereeing, I think if a goalie punches a player in the head, it should be an automatic yellow card. A flying punch in the head to someone who isn't expecting it and is jumping at the time, so off balance, is pretty dangerous. Note that while it was the Diego Lopez punch that made me think of this, I am not arguing that he should have been carded, since it's not the convention to do so.

Grappling at corners is also getting ridiculous. FIFA should make a blanket statement that, from the start of next season, a penalty will be given for holding onto a player in the box. It would stop overnight. It's such an unnecessary foul, and is appallingly inconsistently refereed.
