You are in an "off-side position" if you are: 1. On on the opposing team's half of the field and... 2. Neither one of these things is between you and the opposing team's goal: (1) two opposing players (one is normally the goalkeeper) or (2) the ball.
However.....being in an off-side position does not make you off-side (and therefore the referee will not call an off-side penalty on you) until you are involved in an active play. A very good explanation of the concepts of off-side position and off-side can be found here: http://www.soccerhelp.com/Soccer_Tips_Dictionary_Terms_O.shtml#offside_rule_detailed That site also includes a good explanation of the exceptions to the off-side rule and since I cannot come up with better wording, here is a direct quote from the site: "Special Cases Where Offside Is Not Called: A player is not offside if he receives the ball directly from a goal kick, throw-in or corner kick, even if he is in an offside position; however, once touched, the offside rule starts and if it is then played to a player in an "offside position", offside may be called. (Note that the offside rule does apply on "free kicks"). A player is also not offside if he passes the ball backward, even if doing so leaves him in an "offside position". However, if he is in an offside position & the ball is played back to him (e.g., a wall pass), then he can be called offside." == == == == Previous answers.....
There must be a defender between the attacking player and the goal keeper when the attacking player recieves the ball, otherwise he/she is offside There must be a defender between the attacking player and the goal keeper when the attacking player recieves the ball, otherwise he/she is offside no there must be two players (one of whom is normally the goalkeeper) between the attacker and the goal line WHEN THE BALL IS PLAYED, and if the attacker is in the opponent's half of the field
In soccer, a player is offside if he is in an offside position and becomes involved in play. In hockey, a player is offside if he is in the attack zone (fully across the blue line) when the puck enters the same zone. Please see the related questions for detailed information about each sport.
An indirect free kick is awarded to the other team. Indirect meaning that they cannot shoot at goal. things you should note:player cannot be offside if in his or her own half,cannot be offside if he or she receives the ball directly eg from a corner, offside free kick not awarded if player is not affecting play, e.g lying injured
If there is an offside infraction, the assistant referee (sometimes called Linesman) will raise his flag to indicate that play must be stopped, and follow the the appropriate signal. Play will be restarted with an indirect free kick to the defenders from the location where the offside player was at the moment that his teammate played it.
"offsides" means that the ball was being passed to you when you where behind the last defender of the opposing team. When you are offsides, the play stops and the opposing team gets a free-kick from where the ball was passed. This prevents "cherry-picking".
It's not that difficult to understand, really. If a person on one team has only one person or no people between them and the goal when they receive the ball, it's offsides. The rule was established so people don't just stand next to the goal while all the other players are everywhere else. There has to be two people between one player at the goal, and they have to be on the other team. If they don't touch it, then it's not called. It results in a kick from the place they were standing.
If a player of a team is on the other side of the field behind all the players (or behind the defenders) but still in front of the goalie, then this person is in an offside position. This, however, is NOT offside. It is not against the law of soccer to be in an offside position. Now say that person is in an offside position and his/her teammate passed the ball to him/her and that person plays or touches the ball, that is considered offside. That is illegal in the law of soccer. Say the other teammate passed the ball to his/her teammate in an offside position but the person doesn't make a move to go for the ball, then that isn't considered offsides, and therefor is not considered illegal in the law of soccer.
A player in an offside position is only penalised if, at the moment the ball touches or is played by one of their team, they are , in the opinion of the referee, involved in active play by:
> interfering with play
> interfering with an opponent
> gaining an advantage by being in that position
In doing this the attacking player will between the last defender and the defending goalkeeper when the ball is played to them . If the attacking player is in line with a defending player (not the goalkeeper) then no offside offence has been committed
Committing an Offside Offence -A player in an offside position is only penalised if, at the moment the ball touches or is played by one of their team, they are, in the opinion of the referee, involved in active play by the following:
>interfering with play
>interfering with an opponent
>gaining an advantage by being in that position
do you mean like handball, offsides, foul?
Offsides and obstruction
Rules for goalkeepers and offsides have been changed.
Hand Balls, offsides, and throw ins
No. This is not a cautionable offense. There are other things that can happen simultaneously to the offside call that could be. But being offside would never be a listed reason for a caution.
The difference is that offense is when your team has the ball and defense is when you want to get the ball or tackle but in your case your going to rip the flag of the other person.
for every $10.00 you spend, you get one point
He tells the referee if it's offsides, judges if it's a corner kick or throw in, and fouls
No, it's a basic sport the only reason would be to review offsides calls
No. Only the parts of the body that can play the ball are considered in the offside determination.
