    Oh, that reminds me of my favourite rule - that to be played onside you have to have two players playing you on, not one.

    I only realised this at the last World Cup when the linesman made an incredible call on a corner (I think Mexico were playing).

    The keeper usually counts as one of them, but it's not the rule that one of them has to be the keeper. That's why it's interesting. It gets very complicated if the keeper comes far out, like for a corner at the end of a game.

    I have seen refs fuck this up several times. It's not a well understood rule.

    Doesn't have to be the keeper obviously. Just 2 players and one is normally the keeper as they are usually nearest the line.

    And I've definitely seen a player down playing an otherwise outrageous goalhanger onside. Maybe the rules have changed since though.
    I can't say for sure this didn't happen as I haven't seen the incident you're talking about, but I'm really quite sure that you can't be played onside by an injured player.

    so lemme get this straight if a keeper goes up for a corner, and the other team break, is this allowed to happen?

    If the attacker receives the ball, he is offside?!

    I remember this coming up years ago when, as you mentioned, mart poom came up for a corner and the ref got it wrong as it was played back down field.

    Luckily, a good tackle settled the matter otherwise it would have been a proper pub trivia moment.

    So this is what happens when Man United/Chelsea/Spurs/Arsenal don't play at the weekend.
  • Deleted user 25 March 2013 15:34:29
    No one fucking played at the weekend!

    I'M GOING CRAZY!
  • Deleted user 25 March 2013 15:34:42

    OK, hows about this one: A substitute isnt allowed to touch the ball until play restarts as he technically hasnt come onto the pitch yet.

    So, if rooney got stretchered off and wellbeck brought on, wellbeck wouldnt be allowed to take the free kick awarded to rooney.

    Anyone remember when Rooney was subbed and then brought back on? How did that work?

    (He was playing for Everton at the time IIRC, so the United lot can wipe away the foam from their mouths)

    No idea. But it does remind me of the rash of footballers being stretchered off all the time because if treatment was needed on the pitch you HAD to be stretchered off to the side.

    I wish players would take more notice of it being the referee's decision whether a game is stopped for an injury. Drives me mad when a team start a bit of handbags because the other lot didn't kick the ball out because their man's down.

    How did that start anyway? It sounds like a Sky myth to me, like "last man".
  • Deleted user 25 March 2013 15:49:41
    Penalty taker can't score from a straight rebound off a post. Crazy rule.

    I hate that. Its up to the ref to stop play, so play to the fucking whistle.

    It's a Premier League only rule (or best practice) of think. Hence why in the cups, it's still expected that the ball is put out.

    Pretty sure it was the Argentina v Mexico game. Tevez scored the goal I think, then they played replays on the big screens which almost caused riots.

    Yes :)
    However if he was on or behind the halfway line and there was only one defender in the entire opposition half he'd be fine. Or if their entire team had gone up, and the attacker was just behind the halfway line and was the closest player to the goal.
