This is an interesting "role play" idea.

Your the ref in the situatio, what would you do?


Situation;

It's the quarter-final of Euro 2008. The Netherlands are a goal down
with just seconds remaining of added-on time. The referee awards
a corner kick to the Dutch.

The Netherlands keeper leaves his goal and races into the opposition
penalty area, but the corner is hit too high and is likely to swing past
the far post out of play, well out of everyone's reach.

Two Dutch players hoist the keeper high in the air, rugby-style. They
do not block, impede or interfere with any opponents as they hold the
keeper steady in the air like a towering statue.

The ball flies towards him and he meets it perfectly to head it into the
back of the net.

What would you do in this situation?

-BBC Sport


Is it allowed? You ARE the ref! ;)

I noticed this on BBC Sport once and found it interesting.

Not the exact scenario, just the concept.

But, I would say that it should be allowed. Theres nothing that I can think of to say otherwise.

Was going to wait to post what I would call and why for a little bit. It looks a fun thread and I didn't want to kill it right away.

Although when I posted the correct call in the Euro's that didn't stop anyone from arguing either. :D:p

So get it posted so I can spend three days telling you how wrong
you are before apologizing and crawling back under my stone :D

Well I clicked goal. I really can't see anything wrong with it.

I'm sure I'm wrong Cappy because you know your stuff when it comes to this, but
until I see something to tell me why it shouldn't be a goal I'll stick to my guns :p

Reason I said no goal...

...there us a rule stating that no player may use objects other then himself including
opposing players and posts/crossbars to gain any advantages

Therefore, the player is gaining an unfair advantage...that's my view on it anyways.
