Wonky Goalposts?
« on: December 12, 2018, 05:36:06 PM »
Did anybody else think both of our right-hand goalposts were leaning backwards vs York?
He who would valiant be , 'gainst all disaster.
Let him in constancy follow the master.
There's no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent, to be a Pilgrim.

IFAB Laws of the Game 2018-19
A goal consists of two vertical posts equidistant from the corner flagposts and joined at the top by a horizontal crossbar. The goalposts and crossbar must be made of approved material. They must be square, rectangular, round or elliptical in shape and must not be dangerous.

Don't know what would happen if the referee or our opponents objected prior to a match.   :(

Too late, it's been leaked!  It was probably the wet that caused the problem in the first place.

It's up to the match referee to check the playing surface and equipment to ensure all is in order... onus is on them to force us to rectify any problems.

We get wonky officials who give wonky decisions, so wonky goalposts are fine!!
