I didn’t know that dogs played pro soccer. I guess I should maybe become a soccer hooligan?

    I wish I could upvote this to infinity. I am a long time soccer (aka football) player. I wonder how the ref ruled this one. So hilarious.

      Jim – I wondered about that, too. Do the refs in Euro football have an “Act of God” clause?

      I think they should and let the goal be blocked. And then I think someone needs to go for WALKIES!!!

        This is an easy one:

        PupPup is considered an “outside agent.” As such the center should have stopped play once PupPup entered the field (though, again, not if the outside agent does not immediately interfere with play..or the center isn’t speedy enough to intercept said outside agent.) and had PupPup removed from the field of play (as well as its immediate surroundings), then restarted play with a dropped ball.

        Normally the drop ball would occur at the spot where the ball was at when the match was stopped. However, in this case, as the ball was never stopped until it impacted PupPup inside the goal area, the center could probably drop the ball at the exterior goal area line parallel to the actual goal line at the point nearest to where the ball was when play was stopped. Or a few feet shy of the right (as we view it) goal post.

        You’re welcome.

        I’d explain ‘off-sides’, but why bother when John Cleese has already done such a magnificent job?
