Ah - now my eye would be on the dog!!! GREAT dog!
Bill Phillips: Much more interesting than the football Elizabeth
Black and white stripes Bill... the Border Collie must be the referee or a linesman... or does he just retreat the balls that go out of bounds... a fun seriessmile....petersmile
Bill Phillips: I think he wanted to join in but his owner wouldn't let himsmile
I hate these teams that cheat by having an extra player on the pitch
Bill Phillips: the red team was one short so the dog played

Playing this version of the Game...on a triangular pitch, and with furry team members...should surely make it approach cricket in terms of dynamism, Bill.

Umh...this is a visual explanation of the Offside rule...right?
Bill Phillips: Yes the dog is clearly offside unless he is deemed to be inactive, but who ever heard of an inactive border collie?

LOL at Peter. Is the dog practicing rounds up the players in readiness for herding sheep? Did you see one the Premier games was stopped recently when a cat appeared on the pitch?
Bill Phillips: I did. It has happened before at Arsenal I think

a fine unconventional corner -perspective/angle to photograph the football -match -lawn - I like the dog -a real black-and-white dog! Which role did he take in the play? Defender?
Bill Phillips: A border collie I think. He wanted to join in but his owner wouldn't let him smile
Yes, I'll buy this one as another fine contributions to your series Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thank you most kindly Chad

Excellent stuff: wish I'd taken this
Bill Phillips: No greater compliment could be played. I feel humble
Very original 'lineman' LOL
My young one would be on the field trying to steal the ball haha
Bill Phillips: Many years ago my brother played Sunday football and one of his friends had a Jack Russell terrier. It used to dribble the ball with its' nose and noe of them could get it off her!
Its like watching paint dry.
Bill Phillips: Well it has to be better than watching Blackpool play

Very sensible to have a corner flag monitor - clearly he reckons you might be about to make off with it as a souvenir! Good photo Bill.
Bill Phillips: I thought he had designs on it Mike!
With the black and white he must be the ref ....or the ruff ruff.
Bill Phillips: don't give up the day job Mary wink

Where would the local league be without a little friendly interference from our canine friends! grin Great capture Bill
Bill Phillips: most dogs have better ball skills than the players Martin smile
Usually they chase the ball Bill but every one to it own taste.
Bill Phillips: I think he wanted me to throw that nice big stick!
I think the linesman is saying you are offside. Nice shot
Bill Phillips: Haha you might be right John smile
poor dog. He is so puzzled. Every Sunday he has a run on this field, and he knows where the oines and boxes are. Suddenly it is closing in on him and is a different shape. He hasn't heard of the time-space continuum.....yet.
Bill Phillips: Sheila, Sheila. you must stop watching Dr Who
Great capture of the corner referee Bill. I love this image!
Bill Phillips: That's great Richard. Thank you very much
Is that the Newcastle United mascot dog running the line?
Bill Phillips: He did have a Geordie accent when he barked Brian
Rounders??? But what position is the dog playing in?
Bill Phillips: Short legs?
