Ronaldo hits a long ball to Rooney who is in the box. Given is in goal with rooney in front of him and beyong him (closer to the half way line) is Jean Alain Boumsong!

Rooney is therefore offside as he is between the goals and the last defender. If rooney was between Jean Alain and the halfway line then he would be onside.



Example 2

Rooney is between Boumsong and the halfway line and the ball is passed forward. He is onside. However, Ronaldo is on the wing walking back from the last attack and is almost at the goaline! But he;s not involved in play! So the game continues once rooney gets the ball! however he instantly passes to Ronaldo acros the pitch and ronaldo is called offside for being in an offisde postiion at the initial pass.

This is Boumsong. Going by my favourite principle - "Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder", its for you to decide. I love Boumsong's surname by the way. Wink





Now you know what offside is, right?

Further to the offside rule,(not mentioned in this thread) you cannot be offside when receiving the ball from a throw-in (ie, you can be closer to the goal than all opposition defenders, but not offside), and you cannot be offside if you are behind the ball when it is played (ie, ronaldo and rooney are the only players in the newcastle half, ronaldo has the ball on the goalline, he passes it back to Rooney on the penalty spot - although Rooney is closer to the goal than all Newcastle players, he was behind the ball, and hence he is not offside).
Hope that hasn't confused anyone anymore.

The point is that it stops the striker from tittylining. This means hanging around the opposition's goalmouth looking for an easy tap-in. It's generally better for the game, cos it means the players generally follow the ball around the pitch and the game doesn't get stretched. Imagine you had 4 strikers all within six yards of the opposition's goal. The other team would have to deploy 4 defenders to watch them. What an ugly game that would be.

Has nobody explained the new offside rule, BTW, under which it's not necessarily an offence to be offside - and depends on whether players are 'active' or not?
