Leaning on or Grabbing the Goals
I already did a good enough job of blowing up the eastsides thread. I should have made this early, sorry.
Let's hash this out.
1) If you think players should be allowed to lean on the goal, why?
2) If you think players should be allowed to touch the goal but not lean on it, how can the ref discern the difference during gameplay?
3) If you think players should be allowed to grab the goal however they want, then fuck off.
4) If you think that players should not be allowed to touch the goal, in order to verify that they are standing under their own power, what ramifications in play style might this create and are those ramifications really negative?
Just kidding, please explain yourself though.
