    Kick-off - YES !! !!

    First time I've seen it :) Romania v Switzerland The BBC website recorded it like this: The Swiss take their kick-off backwards, baffling Pat Nevin in the process. That's a new rule change as of 1 June. You can smack it anywhere you want now. Shoot if you want.

    ... people seem to worship us by saying we can't have football games without referees ... Yes we play a part in the football family - but - we aren't Gods or even the most important part !! For me - it's the coaches who are the most important ... they put the effort in mid-week and game day...

    Offside - ARM

    Law 11 is very clear that an ATTACKING player's arm cannot be offside Today at half-time in the Manchester United v Newcastle game I'm sure I heard Howard Webb (in the TV truck) refer to the DEFENDING player's arm as something that cannot play an attacking player onside Have I ..: heard it...

    Offside - interfering - with a player's mind

    Ball over the top into space Yellow 9 - who is in an off-side position - starts to run towards it - he is still 15 yards from the ball when CAR flag goes up Yellow 9 sees the flag - stops - hasn't physically stopped a Blue player from getting to the ball ... Yellow 8 (on-side) runs on to the...
