    If thats the case then why cant you dribble it into the goal? I know penaltys have been passed before but that is to another player

    @nickthegun

    So if it does come back off the woodwork and the same player taps it in, what happens?

    According to wiki, its the same as a free kick in that the taker cant touch it until another player touches it.

    I would imagine the same as a free kick. A foul is blown and a free kick is awarded to the other team.

    I thought it was fairly common knowledge that it had to touch another player before the taker can touch it again? I've always known that.

    I always thought that as the ball was struck it entered normal play. I think its one of those things I have thought since I was a child, so have never updated the databanks.

    Unsurprisingly, this is bollocks.

    If that's the case nick what's to stop the taker teeing it up and dribbling round the keeper / tricking him / etc etc.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I'm with deck, this feels like basic stuff. Sorry.

    Next up, why you can't be offside from a corner (and why there's always some nob-head in the crowd who thinks you can't be offside from a freekick)

    I'm ashamed to say I don't know whether you can be offside from a throw-in :(

    The throw-in thing is probably my favourite football rule.

    What about everyone else. Do you have a favourite rule?

    I always remember the shakey start Teddy Sheringham had to his Man U career, and in one of the games he hit the bar with a penalty and then tried to follow it up without it hitting anyone else. I have no idea why I know that.

    Since we are on offsides, I genuinely believe there is no such thing as being offside but 'not interfering with play'.

    You just made Ruud van Nistelrooy cry :(

    Can you score with a throw-in?

    Yeah. You can also score from a goal kick and a corner.

    There is, but it's basically the two scenarios that they used to actually name as the exceptions - tying a shoelace or running back to an onside position

    I think it's more that nobody really minds because it doesn't really give you an advantage.

    Edit: that was for gray.

    For me, though, if they are behind the line, regardless of what they are doing, a defender will have one eye on them and are thus involved in play. Its more than a little pedantic but if you are on the field, you are involved.

    Fine but I think for the sake of the game flowing, it's reasonable to have some exceptions. The problem is that what is an exception is now so confused that players don't know what to do. When there was clarity in who was excepted, defenders could at least choose to ignore a player, even if they were distracted.
