Best Answer

A 'dummy pass' is a feint made by a ball-carrier to fool the opposition defender or defenders into thinking that the ball is about to be passed so that they will transfer their attention to another player. The ball-carrier will make the motions of passing the ball but will instead keep hold of the ball and continue running; even a moment of indecision from the defence may give the ball-carrier enough of an advantage to evade a tackle. If a defending player subsequently misses the tackle, they are said to have been 'sold a dummy'.
