I Blame Soccer

It seems I've had a rash of kicked balls this year. Earlier this week, I actually had to wave off a "basket" due to a kicked ball. A1 attempted a pass to A2 in the post. B1 stuck his leg out and kicked it; sending the ball into A's basket.

Tonight in our varsity boys game, I had three or four of them; my partners had none. We talked about it and agreed that it was just luck of the draw.

on the other hand.....

At my VB game tonight, a ball inadvertently bounced off a player's leg and out of bounds. There was a timeout immediately afterward. Two teenage boys were sitting on the stage. One said, "That was a kicked ball, anyway." I told him it wasn't. The other spoke up. "They don't call that any more. You used to see it all the time, but they never call it now."

I thought this thread would be about throwers-in scuttling down the oob line looking for someone to get the ball to. That's what I see every year in the first few games.

I have not read the original post of this thread yet but I already I agree with Snags on this situation. Darn soccer!

P.S. Now I am going to read the original post.
