half way line

Postby mully Thu Jun 14, 2007 5:02 pm

There used to be a rule in ladies lacrosse that the keeper can't cross the halfway line, does that still exist anymore? or do you just need the certain amount of people behind the restraining line regardless position?

there has always been a half way marker, otherwise how would you know where to take the....wait for it.....CENTRE draw! haha sorry being cheeky.

but it changed becasue of the introduction of the restrainer. I think goalies should get to run full field but it seems those who wear helmets leave their brains at home and start bull dodging which brings up the issue of field player safety...although goalies can play 2/3rds already anyway and I find the field players love it and just want to wail on the goalkeeper who and already advantaged by their huge stick and pocket....i think its the only time when referees allow a tough upcheck!

can't believe i'm biting, but

.... it's 3 metre's long - a pitch is 50 - 60 metres wide - can hardly say someone stepped over a half way line then - would it only count if they cross right over the centre?

I can't believe u bit either :lol: as long as the goalie tip toed around the 3m line....GO FOR GOAL!! haha on a 'serious' note I'm going to go with......it would be the bench officials call who sit at half way anyways, and all the rules seem to be down to "personal interpretation" the same with charging, pushing or a swipe.

Every single game is interpreted so different. In one game nothing is blown, in another half the team has yellow cards for the exact same play!
