|I believe the position after move #5 is not legitimate, since the ball is not reachable without leaving the field. Please correct me if I'm wrong.|
|For what it's worth, I concur. What an unusual play. After the player moves, it looks fine, but the "keep the non-goalies out of the net" rule moved the player into an illegal position.|
|Well, I didn't move the player myself.|
As ecowarrior said, it was the "keep the non-goalies out of the net" rule which moved my player.
But don't worry ! Whatever your next move will be, I will have to play the ball.
|I'd love to hear Cwali's opinion.....|
|It shows how difficult is to predict all possible cases during programming. We required 10 years of tests to encounter the problem |
|I know it's an uncommon position which possibly never appeared before. I wouldn't have made a fuss, if your position wouldn't prevent my goal. ;-)|
|My time is running out and it seems no one responsible has looked into this issue. I guess I'll have to move, so I don't lose in time. |
|I wouldn't move. If you'll lose by time, Ronald can easily set this back once he'll get to it. (At least I think he can.)|
|Sorry for not responding sooner... I was hoping Cwali would comment on this.|
But even if this would appear to be illegal, I'm not going to fix it in the code. It would be a seriously difficult thing to program to forbid a move like this, for a situation that apparently hasn't occurred in 10 years previously. What I could do is undo the move and ask to make another move that wouldn't result in this situation.
|I say the outfielder who played the ball which was at the goal line, should have moved 2 steps to the other side, according to rulebook details which aren't at this website.|
But best leave it as it is.
