    Thanks for taking a moment to enjoy how dumb sports can be. If you know a story involving a weird, obscure, outlandish, outdated, unbelievable, inescapable, insurmountable, diabolical, what was I saying...just tell us the weird rules you know and we'll do the rest.

      Here's one - in association football (soccer), a goal cannot be scored directly off a throw-in, as long as the ball goes in without being touched by another player on the same team. This happened in a 2002 Premier League rivalry game between Birmingham and Aston Villa. A player for Aston Villa took a throw-in towards his goalkeeper, which then supposedly lightly hit his foot and rolled in. Because of the supposed contact (which apparently remains inconclusive to this day), the referee counted it. Peter Enckelman, the goalkeeper in question, emphatically denies that he ever touched the ball.

      I don't get it. I don't know basketball very well, but Georgia had a free throw and score advantage with one second left. If Kentucky commits a foul, Georgia gets... two free throws and a bigger score advantage with still the same one second left. How does that improve the situation?

                    Great content ideas but I cant stand most of the people in the interviews, to echo others I think it's the format, I hate hate hate the format of most of these vids.

                    Less cringe was a great suggestion

                      I do not know the rules of Basketball, but having listened to your explanation - the coach sounds logical and calculating. Exactly what is needed from from coaches.

                            Wait so, they’re up 1 and get 2 free throws. They sink 1 and are up 2 now. The 2nd free throw gets goal tended and now they’re up 3 and they get 2 more free throws after that?

                              Nerlens Noel never played for Billy G. Stop being so lazy and use the correct player photo instead of misleading viewers. You either didn’t know or are just a lazy channel, either way your folks don’t really know sports and are desperate. Unfollowed.

                                              What’s stopping them from just doing exact same thing the goaltending is supposed to stop? Like you goaltend shot number 2 they get the point and are now up 3 points with 2 free shots instead of up 2 points with 1 free shot

                                                It was to allow Kentucky to inbound the ball with the clock still at 1.2 seconds. If Georgia missed the free throw that was goaltended the clock would have started as soon as Kentucky rebounded and they'd have to throw up an 80 foot shot. If Georgia missed the technical free throws they could try to run a play to inbound the ball down the court and get a closer shot.

                                              Except Billy Clyde stated after the game he didn't know it would result in a technical. He thought goaltend, shot counts, get ball back down 3 with 1.2 seconds left.

                                                        Kentucky also once had a coach allow a team to score a TD late in a football game just so we could try to score a TD ourselves and go for 2 to tie the game. And it almost worked. The 2-pt conversion was dropped in the end zone!

                                                            Before I watch past the first 10 seconds, one reason I would want to goaltend a free throw is if the opposing team was trying to miss and grab the rebound for a quick putback.

                                                                a basketball team in the Philippines was down 1 point and have a possession and no timeout left with two seconds in the clock,they make a timeout call to interrupt the game because it cause them a technical and a one free throw shot to the opponent and that is the time to have gather and make a plan for a play but sadly the last shot doesnt go in but many are amaze with that very rare basketball strategy.

                                                                                      People have this all wrong. First of all, the ball has to touch the rim for the clock to start on a miss. Second of all, the clock doesn't start until a player rebounds it, not when it touches the rim, so they still could have had a chance.

                                                                                      • Braves20715
