Okay, so this is a personal rant, but the official name for the infraction is "offside", not "offsides" Way too many people - coaches, referees and TV commentators included - get it wrong! For example they'll say, "the play was stopped because the player was offsides", or "Jim, watch out, you're offsides". No, it was called offside, the player was offside. How can people make this mistake? As importantly, how do they describe multiple offside infractions? "Boy, there were lots of offsideses called in that game" Just a pet peeve, but a big one - is it just me??
