Iâ€™ve been milling this one over for a few weeks now and I just canâ€™t come up with a definitive answer. If I close down an attacker with the ball on the halfway line, to make a genuine attempt to play the ball. If the attacker simply lifts the ball in to my knee cap when Iâ€™m about 1.5 meters away, I would be expecting either a â€˜play onâ€™ - or FHD if Iâ€™ve been disadvantaged. Iâ€™m thinking because ofâ€¦ 9.9 - Players are permitted to raise the ball with a flick or scoop provided it is not dangerous. A flick or scoop towards an opponent within 5 metres is considered dangerous. 9.15 - Players must not force an opponent into offending unintentionally. There is no way of me getting out of the way of the ball, so even if heâ€™s trying to pass it to someone behind me if Iâ€™m genuinely trying to play the ball surely heâ€™s either forcing me to foul OR flicking the ball towards me when Iâ€™m within 5 meters. Either way play on or give me the ball Iâ€™m certainly not thinking it should be a foul against me. The problem is that this didnâ€™t happen on the halfway line. It happened in front of the goal. Iâ€™m fairly sure if it hadnâ€™t hit my knee it was going in to the goal behind me. If I was the attacker I would be screaming PS. But now that Iâ€™ve had the pleasure of being the defender Iâ€™m in two minds what I should do as an umpire if this situation occurs when I've got the whistle. Iâ€™ve done loads of searches and been trying to find my own solution, but now itâ€™s nearly three weeks after the incident Iâ€™ve decided itâ€™s time to ask for direct help. Should the open goal behind the defender change my interpretation of these rules or am I making an even more obvious mistake?
