IF the defender is in the neutral zone or past it when the ball is snapped, its an offside. But the foul is announced after the completion of the play to allow the Offence to keep any yardage gained if they so deserve. If they choose to accept the foul, then 5 yards penalty is assessed against the defense. Check out : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_football_rules#Fouls_by_either_team
The offside rule is used in winter sports such as American football and ice hockey.
Sports such as ice hockey, field hockey, American and Canadian football, soccer and rugby have an offside rule.
The ball cannot be offside. Players can be in an offside position.
Offside was not introduced as a separate rule. English football has always had offside. The earliest sets of rules which were drawn up in the nineteenth century all included an offside rule.
No. A player cannot be offside directly from a goal kick.
In MLS they use the offside markers to see if a player is offside
Yes, there is an offside penalty in American Football. The neutral zone is defined as the area extending from the tip of the football to each side of the field, so the neutral zone is as wide as the length of the football. No player, except the center, may have any part of his body in the neutral zone at the time the ball is snapped, otherwise they are guilty of being offside. On a kickoff, no player may have any part of his body across the line upon which the ball rests prior to the kick, except for the holder if one is used. The penalty for offside is 5 yards.
The defense, by definition, cannot be called offside. This is because the offside position is measured from the moment a teammate last plays the ball. If the ball is in clear possession of the other team, you cannot be called offside.

A free kick at the point of offside, everytime
No. A player can never be in an offside position while on their own half. A player could be in an offside position in the opponent's half at the time of the touch, run back to their own half to collect it, and be guilty of an offside offense. The officials would wait and see what the player did once they were determined to be in an offside state.
There is no "offspring" in football. What you mean is probably the offside rule. The offside rule is one of the most debated and asked about rules. However it is quite simple. If the player is in front of the ball when it is passed and has not got at the least two defending players closer to the defending goal line than they are, she or he is said to be in an offside position.
A player who is behind the ball cannot be in an offside position. A player that is in an offside position at the moment of the kick would be guilty of an offense if he runs back to collect a pass, even if the pass was backward.
Offsides is a 5 yard penalty.
The offside is a very fair rule and has only one disadvantage and that is, the linesmen and referee have to make their decisions in a split second, with the naked eye and they often make mistakes, giving goals that were offside and ruling out goals when they were onside.
Offside, tripping, and holding. There are many, many more.
well, if you are behind the last man you are offside but if you are in front of the last man you are onside
He checks whoes throw in it is, if a player is offside, if it is a free kick and if it's a penalty.
To be offside, you do not have to touch it. If you interfere with an opponent (e.g. possibly lunge at him) or gain an advantage by being there (e.g. recover a deflection off the keeper or goalpost) are also enough.
Yes Women very well especially the ones interested in football know the offside rule. only joking its a bit weird if they do. they should go and shop somewhere
there isn't offside
Its called Offside, or being in an offside position. Being in an offside position, in and of itself, is not a foul. The foul occurs when the ball is PLAYED to the PERSON in an offside position. You can be "passive", not involved in the play, in an offside position and there is no foul.
