    It varies widely here. Higher level teams tend to have a person whose job it is to look after the referee. One club I go to announces the name(s) of the official(s) over the tannoy and that even...

    I said no such thing. The problem is that current law does not cover the situation at all, so we are having to make it up.

    The ball has to be dead before anyone can take a QTI. Therefore the QTI is not like a pass in open play.

    [Law] Re: Law 12.6 Kick off

    It's a common misconception that the ball has to cross the 10m while still in the air. As you rightly say, that is not the case. Well done the referee (I hope he shouted "Play on" when it was clear...

    Re: When is the ball out?

    The player is in touch. Jumping in the air does not change that, since he lands back in touch.

    [Law] Re: Offside oddity

    But the only way for B9 to play the ball is to go past B7 thereby putting himself onside.

    (As long as B7 has the sense not to run back past the ball!)

  14. [Law] Re: Folauís online comments have taken a turn for the worse.

    That is a false dichotomy. The law proscribes certain talk such as defamation, racism etc.

    Technically Blue 9 is "ahead" of Blue 7, and so offside. If Blue 7 turns round and runs away from the ball, he can put Blue 9 onside. Similarly if Blue 9 overtakes him to get to the...

    A player juggling the ball is deemed to be in sufficient possession to justify tackling him for obvious practical reasons.

    [Law] Re: Offside oddity

    When Blue 7 fumbles backwards, that sets the offside line. The ball is now on the safe side of that line, so any Blue player who gets to it must have got past the offside line and is therefore onside.
