    I wonder how an issue like this is addressed in a systemic manner
    Silly me - answer is obvious. Don't fall into trap of taking Pomanians seriously.

    Although, if they are old enough, they might be remembering the old Law (pre 2000)

    From the 1996 Laws of the Game

    LAW 24. OFF-SIDE

    Off-side means that a player is in a position in which he is out of the game and is liable to penalty. In general play the player is in an off-side position because he is in front of the ball when it has been last played by another player of his team.
    In play at scrummage, ruck, maul or line-out the player is offside because he remains or advances in front of the line or place stated in, or otherwise infringes, the relevant sections of this Law.

    A. Off-Side in General Play

    (1)A player is in an off-side position if the ball has been
    • kicked, or
    • touched, or
    • is being carried by one of his team behind him.


    (2)There is no penalty for being in an off-side position unless:-
    (a) the player plays the ball or obstructs an opponent, or
    (b)he being within ten meters of an opponent waiting to play the ball or of the place where the ball pitches does not retire without delay and without interfering with the opponent, or
    (c)he, on all other occasions, moves towards the opponents waiting to play the ball or to the place where the ball pitches, before he is put on-side.

    Exceptions:-

    (i)When an off-side player cannot avoid being touched by the ball or by a player carrying it, he is "accidentally offside". Play should be allowed to continue unless the infringing team obtains an advantage, in which case a scrummage shall be formed at that place.

    (ii)A player who receives an unintentional throw-forward is not off-side.

    Penalty:-
    Penalty kick at the place of infringement, or, at the option of the non-offending team, a scrummage at the place where the ball was last played by the offending team. If the latter place is in In-goal, the penalty kick shall be taken or the scrummage shall be formed five meters from the goal line, on a line through the place.

    For an infringement of (2)(c) by more than one player, the place of infringement will be that of the off-side player closest to the player waiting for the ball or where the ball pitches.

    I am so glad you posted that -- it clears up for me why I always have this insistent feeling in me that where the ball lands is the place(indeed I have rechecked the laws several times to reassure myself it isn't the case).

    So there's my answer - it's a memory built in my playing days, long ago, when indeed it was PK where it lands or scrum where they kicked it. I must say I like that old way better.

    Confusion and mixing up different Laws is not a difficult mistake to make if you do not revisit the good book or a forum site like this regularly.

    Referee Coaches / Assessors need regular "training updates" as much as referees to keep them at top performance levels.

    Hey, they can't even spell metres, so we shouldn't be that surprised they can't remember the Law Book..
