    Thanks for taking a moment to enjoy how dumb sports can be. If you know a story involving a weird, obscure, outlandish, outdated, unbelievable, inescapable, insurmountable, diabolical, what was I saying...just tell us the weird rules you know and we'll do the rest.

      Here's one - in association football (soccer), a goal cannot be scored directly off a throw-in, as long as the ball goes in without being touched by another player on the same team. This happened in a 2002 Premier League rivalry game between Birmingham and Aston Villa. A player for Aston Villa took a throw-in towards his goalkeeper, which then supposedly lightly hit his foot and rolled in. Because of the supposed contact (which apparently remains inconclusive to this day), the referee counted it. Peter Enckelman, the goalkeeper in question, emphatically denies that he ever touched the ball.

        Y’all are stupid 1.2 seconds left they were going to miss on purpose and guarantee the win by goaltending you get a chance to make a shot

                  What’s stopping them from just doing exact same thing the goaltending is supposed to stop? Like you goaltend shot number 2 they get the point and are now up 3 points with 2 free shots instead of up 2 points with 1 free shot

                    Except Billy Clyde stated after the game he didn't know it would result in a technical. He thought goaltend, shot counts, get ball back down 3 with 1.2 seconds left.

                              Kentucky also once had a coach allow a team to score a TD late in a football game just so we could try to score a TD ourselves and go for 2 to tie the game. And it almost worked. The 2-pt conversion was dropped in the end zone!

                                  Before I watch past the first 10 seconds, one reason I would want to goaltend a free throw is if the opposing team was trying to miss and grab the rebound for a quick putback.

                                    Now that I watched the video, I realized that would be a bad strategy unless you were up by at least 4 on the attempted miss.

                                      a basketball team in the Philippines was down 1 point and have a possession and no timeout left with two seconds in the clock,they make a timeout call to interrupt the game because it cause them a technical and a one free throw shot to the opponent and that is the time to have gather and make a plan for a play but sadly the last shot doesnt go in but many are amaze with that very rare basketball strategy.

                                          Well when you shoot a free throw it has to touch the rim unless it's an airball so the defense could box out and have 1 player cherry picking so the defense would get the ball and through the ball to the other side of the court for a 2 and tie the game

                                            For the record, he does shout to his player and tell him to goal tend on purpose.

                                                          What if they also bounced the 2 free throws off the back board and run the clock down. It would be the same scenario but just loosing by a greater margin

                                                            I think the odds of Georgia missing both technical free throws with their best shooter are probably lower than the odds of them accidentally making the second regular free throw.

                                                              People have this all wrong. First of all, the ball has to touch the rim for the clock to start on a miss. Second of all, the clock doesn't start until a player rebounds it, not when it touches the rim, so they still could have had a chance.
