    Too much fecking crabbing across the pitch and it needs to be stamped out a the start IMO.
    Ah jesus that's doing two things at the same time!! :_noway__by_bad_bloo....

    but seriously, good point, thanks! :smile2:

On the very first go, myself & another lad were going for it on the ground - he is taller and wider than me, but as we both dived for it I still managed to shoulder charge him out of the way! :D
      Have you played Ultimate Frisbee?

          Don't kick the ball when on the attack unless your a competent kicker and it's on. Don't continuously run out of defence if your kicker is available.
          We'll engrave your name in gold, as we did in days of old.

            Quick questions that have me annoyed intrigued ? Any referees out there

            1 . Why do referees alert players that the ball has been carried back into the 22 ? Surely it only aids the defensive team who are under pressure to clear their lines and this advises the kicker not to kick to touch .
            2 : also hands off calls , leave it calls or when a player is in front of the ball when his 10 for instance kicks , his team mate no 8 in front runs on the collect and ref shouts 8 stop 8 stop , I know why ie he would be offside but is the ref again aiding the kickers team ?
            What are the rules around this or is it just to aid continuity of the game ?
            Still there's a light I hold before me
            You're the measure of my dreams

              You are correct. It is done to aid continuity of the game. Having said that, the ref not telling you doesn't mean you are okay to keep going if you know what I mean.
