    Someone needs to find the rule on this.

    I`ve seen hundreds of times where the penalty is missed, and even though the ball is still in play, and moving, the referee blows his whistle and picks up the ball.

    Is it a judgment call?

    If the ball is still in play after it hits the post from a penalty mid-game then you carry on. But if it hits the post in a penalty shoot out usually it won`t count as a goal.

    But you can still shoot, hit the post into the goal. Do you know what I mean?

    @auburnjunky: During a shoot-out, as soon as it`s clear that the ball is either out of bounds or nowhere near close to going into the goal, the whistle will be blown. In the course of a game, a penalty kick that doesn`t go in remains live and normal play resumes.

    To be fair, nobody could blame the goalie for thinking he was in the clear. That was a one-in-a-million chance.

    "To be fair, nobody could blame the goalie for thinking he was in the clear. That was a one-in-a-million chance."

    To be fair, everyone could blame the goalie. You don`t give up on any play in any sport until its over. Not hard to look where the ball went before reacting to your unimpressive save. Amateur is all it is. Anyone who`s played sports can tell you that.

    @bob

    I watched the texans v jags game this last weekend. The game ended with the texan d instead of putting the ball out of play, kept it alive and was bouned into the the hands of a jags receiver. You always play until its dead

    Wow that was insanely lucky. I have never seen a shot do that after hitting the crossbar and I`m guessing the keeper hadn`t either.

    You clearly know nothing of football. Every keeper would walk away in celebration if the guy taking the penalty hit the bar and it flew away up in the air like that. Every single one.


    Imagine a baseball player hitting an easy pitch. It`s flying, everyone can see it`s going out for a home run. Yet incredibly, just before it leaves the park, it catches on the wire running from the spotlights, and pings back towards the outfielders, who launch it towards second base and get the guy out because he wasn`t running full speed.


    Is he unprofessional for not sprinting the entire home run? No. It`s ridiculous.

    Seriously? It was a metaphor you douchebags...

    Lets do hockey.

    Your team is up by 1 in the finishing seconds, and your team has the puck, one of the players skates in front of his own teams net in the last 3 seconds, falls over, and the puck goes in because the goalie wasn`t looking towards his own team mate with the puck because there were other opposing team memebers on the other side...

    The puck goes in, O.T.

    Or, we could just accept the fact that that was a 1 in a billion shot that will probably never ever be made again and that it was a totally normal reaction, and have no need for extended metaphor being taken literally by people who have a stick up their asses.

    Really? Sigh. Stupid baseball. What if it hit something before it went into the stands, so it was still above the outfield? A bird or something. I don`t know, come up with your own insanely unlikely American sporting scenario.
