This may just be the worst offside call of all time.
During Newcastle Jets’ 2-1 win over Western Sydney Wanderers today, lineswoman Sarah Ho somehow managed to flag Jets striker Edson Montano offside, when he was standing nearly 10 yards ONSIDE as the square pass was played.
Ho was standing in the perfect position as the square pass was made, so how she managed to deem the move offside is anyone’s guess.
Unless of course the touch from the Sydney defender changed Ho’s perception of the play…
The decision ultimately didn’t prove too costly to either side, as the Jets still won the game 2-1; had they lost this would have surely caused real controversy.
