Simple explanation of the offside rule in association football/soccer.
Summary: 1. Offside position = when ahead of (*see 2) both the ball & the 2nd last defender 2. *"Ahead of" does not include arms and hands 3. Foul is called when player becomes active in play (i.e. receives a pass, blocks goalkeeper's view, impedes an opposing player) 4. No offsides during throw-ins, goal kicks, corner kicks, or in the player's own half 5. Pass must be from a teammate for offside to be considered 6. Key moment is "When the ball is PASSED, NOT WHEN IT'S RECEIVED!" 7. Deflections off a player or a post are not considered; the key moment would still be the original pass (this includes a goalkeeper making a save: the rebound position is not considered... only the position of the player as his teammate was taking the original shot)
