What's with soccer offsides anyway? I always thought it a good thing to get ahead of your defender. And another thing, it turns my stomach when I hear kids or parents during a basketball game yelling 'mark that kid!' How do you mark somebody???
Well, why don't I see players lifting up players off the ground when a coach yells, "Pick that kid up!!" in basketball?

All responses are correct, but I will add for clarity that THE PLAYERS in soccer may go out of bounds and play the ball as long as some part of the ball remains inside the boundary plane. So THE PLAYERS can leave the field through the normal course of play in soccer as well as in basketball.

He could have been incorrectly interpreting the violation for leaving the floor (going out of bounds) voluntarily.
He is wrong because a player may have his/her momentum cause him/her to go out of bounds while making a play, and that is NOT to be penalized as a violation of the rule.
