This petition is ridiculous, but so its the situation with Video Assistant Referees in Football, and somehow the decision makers seem to be in some completely isolated bubble where over-complicating everything is a great idea. 

These are the rule changes we'd like to see implemented, because they are simple and allow the game to flow, and because they are simple they will stop VAR from dominating the headlines so often.

1) Hand ball has to be a deliberate movement towards the ball, and/or a player with their arms in an unnatural position.

Kicking a ball at someone's hand is not handball. A player putting their hands down  as they fall and touching the ball is not a handball. 

2) A player is offside if any part of either foot is ahead of any part of a defending players nearest foot to the goal, when the ball is played (unless not interfering with play).

Why? Because its simple and can be checked in seconds. Decisions are clear and won't descend into hours of debate. The rules apply to both teams so neither team gains an advantage. The rule is simple and clear and focus can return to the game.
