More Shirty Thoughts

This is an extremely obvious point. So obvious in fact, I had to check I hadn’t blogged it before, but it seems not.

It is far easier to view an offside position if a team’s shirts matches its socks. All the linesman sees is a blur, (and anyway he has half an eye on the ball being kicked). If that blur is a red vs blue decision (i.e one team wears red shirts, red socks and the other blue shirts, blue socks), it’s far simpler than a blue & white vs red & white decision.

Have an overdose of Lemsips left me missing something plainly obvious to you gentle folk?
