what about preventing a goal scoring opportunity? goalkeeper handling outside his area?
Oct 7th, 2009 at 19:18 GMT
I believe that preventing a goal scoring opportunity is a professional foul, and handling outside the area is deliberate handball.

i wonder what your source is, because everything is fairly accurate, except "deliberate handball". a deliberate handball is usually punished with a yellow card (classic recent example would be cristiano ronaldo deliberately handling the ball during an attacking corner, which he was given a second yellow card and subsequently sent off), unless it falls under the category of denying a goal scoring opportunity, where the player would be sent off

preventing a goal scoring opportunity? Striking (should be accepted for violent conduct)? You clearly have not researched this properly.

taking your shirt off and insighting the crowd are bookable offences I believe.

unsportsmanlike conduct should work

You list the Laws of the Game as a source, yet you seem to have based these answers on the buzzwords that the English media likes to use rather than the text of the Laws themselves. For example, deliberately handling the ball is a foul. It is not necessarily a yellow or a red card. However, I've noticed that in England, it's common to refer to the act of denying a goal or goal-scoring opportunity by deliberately handling the ball as simply "deliberate handball." This layman's simplification is flat-out wrong and directly contradicts the text of the Laws of the Game.
