Yes I think it is OK. I play to win and I accept the responsibility for my actions. If the action is so bad the the penalties would be worse.

Do you ever drive faster than the speed limit? Is that OK? Rolling stop at a stop sign?

It's only a game. Performing an action that is against the rules is a calculated risk. It's only a game. No one is getting injured.

When I am on the sideline and the other team kicks the ball out of bounds, I retrieve it as fast as possible and toss it to my team. If my team kicks it out of bounds, I make no effort to stop the ball - I let it roll further out of bounds forcing the other team to chase it down and give my team more time to set up on defense.

I instruct my players to always assume a ball out of bounds is our throw in. Once in a while the ref is obscured and isn't sure himself who's ball it is and he will go along with which ever team throws the ball in - even if we touched it last and it is their throw in.

First, there is no such thing as "Kansas" players.

Second, that may be breaking a rule but it certainly isnt cheating.

Is this unsportsmanlike or simply good (but desperate) defense? What non goalie wouldn't do whatever it takes (using hands in goal area) to prevent a goal? It doesn't seem like poor sportsmanship.

What do you think?
Nothing wrong with that play.
Anybody can do it, but then have to abide to the laws of the game.

http://www.fifa.com/mm/document/affe...0708_10565.pdf

A player, substitute or substituted player is sent off and shown the red
card if he commits any of the following seven offences:
4. denies the opposing team a goal or an obvious goalscoring opportunity by deliberately handling the ball (this does not apply to a
goalkeeper within his own penalty area)


Why do you think Luis Suarez left the field crying?
95% of the time, penalties end up in a goal.
The only reason anybody talks about this, is because Gyan missed his penalty kick

I understood everything about your post except this. Why was he crying? Was he ashamed? Upset about a red card? I can't think of any other reasons. Tactically he increased the odds of his team not being scored upon (and that was born out). Had he not used his hands the goal would have gone in.

So, why was he crying?

OK, I understand. Even though he illegally prevented the goal with his hand, he figured they would make the penalty kick and his team would lose.

So breaking a rule isnt cheating in football ? A Kansas player charging down a ball before its kicked is cheating which you obviously have no problems with because its one of your guys doing it.
