distoffside

Richard Keys: Somebody better get down there and explain offside to her

Andy Gray: Women don’t know the offside rule.

Emily Pankhurst: Offside is Law XI in the publication Laws of the Game written by the IFAB and published by FIFA. The law states that, if a player is in an offside position when the ball is touched or played by a team mate, she may not become actively involved in the play. A player is in an offside position if she is closer to the opponent's goal line than both the ball and the second-to-last defender, but only if the player is on her opponent's half of the field. Interpretation of the term "actively involved" has become the subject of complex debate.

Wendy Toms: Too much for my tiny brain. Must be damaged from nail polish fumes.
