This headline.  it makes no sense.
 
2013-06-10 09:44:31 AM  
So the Arabic translation for goal is:  AhhhhhhhAhhhhhAAAHHH
 
2013-06-10 09:47:10 AM  
Subby of course realizes that in soccer the team that was scored on starts with possession so it doesn't matter if the Jordanians are sprinting the ball back to the half.

So they don't let women play sports in Jordan?

It reduces the time before the ref blows the whistle to tell the players to put the ball in play.

Jordan was never the best sportman, so I'm not surprised that his team would run up the score on someone.

/ just kidding
// everyone knows that Jordan can never own or coach a successful team
/// it was his deal with the devil for winning so much as a player
 
2013-06-10 09:58:27 AM  
Maybe the losing coach should have done the honorable thing and forfeit the game instead of letting his players continue to embarrass themselves

But the ref keeps time on the field and the clock doesn't stop except for injury.  The officials add time, at their discretion at the end of the half, and the end of the game.

Some people like to call this added time "stoppage time".

Think that's impressive?  Take a look at women's international hockey:

Slovakia beats Bulgaria 82-0
 
2013-06-10 10:05:25 AM  
I read about this on Deadspin. Jordan piled on the points in order to make up a goal differential deficit to Uzbekistan, which beat Kuwait 18-0.
 
2013-06-10 10:08:14 AM  
Is the background to this like the women's hockey game before the Vancouver Olympics where Slovakia had to beat Bulgaria 82-0 just to pass through on goal differential, after the first two teams blew out Bulgaria and just winning wasn't enough?
 
2013-06-10 10:08:46 AM

82-0?  That sounds a bit far fetched.  Urban legend much?
 
2013-06-10 10:24:17 AM  
From Wiki:

Women playing soccer

In April 2001, the parliament banned Kuwaiti women from playing soccer. The ban was passed shortly after Kuwait University organized a women's football tournament. MP Waleed Al-Tabtabaie argued that it was not acceptable for the women's soccer tournament to be held in open because it would allow men to watch women's bodies and that that was clearly forbidden by Islam. The ban was lifted in 2008.


That doesn't appear to have worked out too well for them.

The ref blows the whistle once players are in position and ready to play since, as noted above, there is stoppage time so it doesn't matter if they're slow getting ready.  The ref will only usually hurry things along if the team is taking a particularly long time.

I have to agree.  That's what? 1.3something goals per min?  That would be a major accomplishment even if you were playing another team and their goaltender just sat down behind the net all game.

pastorkius: Subby of course realizes that in soccer the team that was scored on starts with possession so it doesn't matter if the Jordanians are sprinting the ball back to the half.


Once a goal is scored, the team that was defending is in possession of the ball. It is not unheard of for a referee to discipline a member of the team that scored with a yellow card for unsporting behavior for interfering with possession, especially when they are up by such a clear margin of victory.

Which makes me wonder if there was some sort of handshake deal between the two teams, since Kuwait was likely dead last.

It's also not unheard of for teams trying to cling to a lead/tie to have their keeper fall on the ball in the net and stall as long as possible to get the ball in play, counting on the fact that the ref will likely not add much time back on the clock.

It's irritating as shiat to watch, one of the least sportsmanlike things in the game (grabbing the ball when it's clearly the other team's free kick is another.)

Aggregate is part of seeding, so if they should beat a team that badly, they need to, otherwise they lose position.

I think it is pretty obvious that subby is referring to Jordan running up the score, not the mode of play.

Stoppage time can be added for any stoppages,  including injuries, substitutions, time taken during penalties or restarting after a goal, fights, pitch invasions, etc.

Couple of observations after watching that video

1, Good heavens, that keeper might be the worst human being in the history of mankind..

2. I have never understood the sense of entitlement the scoring team seems to think they have to the ball after a goal.

3. Did I mention that keeper is probably guilty of crimes against humanity?

Comes from years of keepers stalling and holding the ball after a goal, just to waste time.

I hope Bulgaria was sanctioned severely by IIHF for making a mockery of the game by pulling their goalie like that.

jpo2269: 3. Did I mention that keeper is probably guilty of crimes against humanity?


It certainly changes things if the keeper just plain can't jump high enough to block anything just under the crossbar (I only watched the first 3 goals, so I don't know if they kept doing that the whole game).

"FARK: Jordanians keep getting the ball out of the net and sprinting it back to run up the score, even up by 16 goals already "

So obvious that they specifically reference getting the ball and sprinting it back as if this will help them run up the score faster or something.

YHPH:

Nah, the keeper actually fumbles the ball a few times, misses several crosses and does everything but Robert Green a goal...  Obviously the person in goal was some poor chick that had never played before and was given the choice of playing in goal or marrying the Emir's ugly cousin..

Yeah, that really was bad.  Her defense didn't help her out, but she has absolutely no athleticism, and was out of position a lot.  And the sulking and pouting doesn't help.  Her footspeed was poor, her angles were bad, and her reaction time glacial.  I felt bad for her.  All but three or four of them your average rec league keeper in the States would have saved (and by that I mean a guy like me).

Yes there is stoppage time.

However, when the ref is calculating stopppage time in a game with a 10+ goal difference, he may be inclined to limit it as much as possible.  So if you need to score 20+ goals, you best be hustling back.

That's a long running joke on one of the soccer sites I post on. I was so used to thinking everyone knew what the joke meant and I forgot where I was. I thought a correction was in order.

Then there's what the Brazilian defender did at the end of the US/Brazil quarterfinal in the last Women's WC.

/Of course, that might jump past "unsportsmanlike" straight into "blatant cheating".
//Still amazed she only got a yellow for that.
///Good thing they ended up losing that game.
