To stop goal scroungers

It was designed to stop goal scrounging little buggers standing in the oppositions penelty box waiting for a team member hoofing it down to em, so improves the quality of the game.

What is the point of the foul throw rule? I think it's only there for skinny little local league ref's to practice their whistle blowing. If the rule was that you have to stay behind the line and use two hands that would suffice, what advantage does anyone get from doing a foul throw?

If you were allowed to hurl it 30 yards using the old 1 arm hurl, it would make the game boring.
