So yes a ref or linesman would flag it up as offside. Plus the general rules of obstruction and unsportsmanlike like behavior would mean that the above tactic would not be allowed.
You don't try and disprove Troll Physics as well, do you? C'mon guy, it's meant to be funny. I don't watch soccer and even I know you can't REALLY do that.

Soccer seems way more appropriate, for people who can't score.

Like the Americans

There are many stupid 'sports' on both sides of the pond...

I played soccer all through grade school, the teacher of our 1 room church school was a fan. Fun game to play boring to watch... but most sports are IMO. I played American football twice in high school, I was good at it, but man is it overly simple.

In all honesty I grew up thinking football (American obviously) was a wussy version of rugby... Half of this state would probably lynch me for that comment. I now know there are more differences then just the violence.

True, but even rugby has a hell of a lot more kicking than American "Football".

Rugby League (rather than Rugby Union, and yes, there is a difference) is closest to American "Football", but that's far more physically demanding than the American game. It also has more kicking.

To be honest, every form of football I know has more kicking than the American game:

Football - kicking is the foundation of the entire game.
Australian Football - kicking is the primary component and the only method to score.
Gaelic Football - kicking is a primary component and the primary scoring method.
Canadian Football - like the American game, but allows for the option of the drop goal during open play.

Once every time someone refers to "soccer" when non-american douchebags are within earshot.

We get it. Your sport is the real one.

:P

because who gives a ****.
that's why.

the important thing is that it's better than soccer. that "sport" where grown men pretend to cry and flop about anytime someone so much as grazes them while going for the ball.
is this a professional contact game or a ballet recital?
