Below are the answers to yesterday’s, “You Are the Ref”, the classic cartoon strip, (Courtesy Guardian UK). If you didn’t see the original post, take look here, but don’t peek below first!
1) Play on: there’s no reason to order a retake. No one is at fault here other than the penalty taker. He slipped and scuffed his shot – and the fact that he did not directly make contact with the ball is irrelevant. It is enough that his kick caused the ball to move forward. (Thanks to Richard Gibbon.)
2) The managers are right to suspect that the authorities would order a replay in these circumstances, and their reluctance to go through it all again in a busy season is understandable. However, it is your decision, not theirs. You need to judge it on whether a) there is enough visibility to avoid it being a farce; b) whether there is any risk to player safety; c) whether it is reasonable to have half the shoot-out played in very different conditions; and d) whether the paying public can see it properly. I would complete the shoot-out if at all possible, then leave it to the authorities to determine whether or not the result stands. (Thanks to Patrick Finnis.)
3) You cannot go ahead: a size 5 ball is mandatory in senior football. Delay the re-start in the hope that staff can recover one of the balls from outside the stadium. If they cannot, you have to abandon. (Thanks to Jason Chau.)
It’s been a long time since we’ve brought you one of these – we’ll rectify that today. They’re always fun! We’ll print Keith Hackett’s answers to these puzzlers tomorrow. Stay tuned! Courtesy of the Guardian UK.
