So what's the problem?
The definition of a goal has been clear ever since football codified its rules in the mid-19th century: for a goal to be scored, all of the ball must cross all of the line. Most disputed goals result from defenders illegally returning the ball into play after it ...
DPA on the net, June 19, 2012
Disputed goals are a major headache in professional football. This case study looks at one particular type where a ball, bouncing on the ground after its impact with the crossbar, spins back into play. An experimental rig was used to derive the critical parameters for this behaviour and [Mathcad] mathematical ...
