Well, say that there is a red team and a blue team. (Team R and Team B) And, Team R's forward player is exactly in line with the last defender of Team B. Then, the ball is kicked right in the middle of those two players, and goes past them. If Team R gets to the ball, it is not considered offsides. I hope that helps! I know that one time we lost a game because the referee called my goal offsides, when it completely wasn't! The offsides rule gets very frustrating, and can work with or against your team.

You cannot be called offside if, at the moment the ball was last played by a teammate, you were nearer to your own goal than the ball or the second-last defender or the halfway line. You also cannot be called offside directly from a goal kick, kick-off, corner kick, or throw-in. Finally, you cannot be called offside, even if you are in an offside position during play, if you do not become involved in the play by playing the ball, interfering with an opponent, or gaining an advantage from that position. Naturally, you cannot be called offside during a dead ball, or before or after a period of play, or when not actively participating in a match.
