Nobody really understands all this new stuff, "involved in the play" etc.
For me, if the guy is not "involved in the play," then what was he doing on the pitch?

Quote from: rafa
remember, its someone from shallowville ur speaking to  Whistle

You're in a shoe shop, second in the queue for the till. Behind the shop
assistant on the till is a pair of shoes which you have seen and which you
must have.

The shopper in front of you has seen them also and is eyeing them with
desire.

Both of you have forgotten your purses.

It would be totally rude to push in front of the first woman if you had no
money to pay for the shoes.

The shop assistant remains at the till waiting.

Your friend is trying on another pair of shoes at the back of the shop and
sees your dilemma.

She prepares to throw her purse to you.

If she does so, you can catch the purse, then walk round the other shopper
and buy the shoes.

At a pinch she could throw the purse ahead of the other shopper and, *whilst
it is in flight* you could nip around the other shopper, catch the purse and
buy the shoes.

Always remembering that until the purse has *actually been thrown* it would
be plain wrong to be forward of the other shopper.

i hate the rules that are called by the discretion of the officials... kinda like icing in ice hockey.

David do you actually play ice-hockey? It so hard.  shocking

Not that its the point out here, but why call it "field" hockey??? ranting

I am already attracted to women's hockey. Women's hockey and Track and Field attracts me far more than men's. Smile

Well to be honest. It's not called field hockey. I call it simply "hockey" and everyone i know round here would understand what i mean (i.e. "field" hockey) but a while ago i said 'hockey' on MW and David automatically thought i meant ice-hockey (because i guess that's how it's like in the USA..) so have to make it precise each time to prevent misunderstandings! Wink

Ooooh i love hockey!  =D> =D> Won the U18 champs at school this year! w00t

Reason for the "field" bit - well it's played on a field although we play on Astro-turf and it's much better!



Mouth guards. Egh. vomit All part of the hockey-ness! Wink

Whatever the reason, dont call it "field hockey". Because it does not exist. wink

Well done on winning the championship. goodjob

Hockey is a very big sport out here, but unfortunately very little of it is played in my city. I dont mind trying my hand in it though. :P I am pretty shameless, no matter how bad I am at a sport. wink
