RTÉ's Attempt At Drawing The Offside Line Is Shambolic

I originally thought 'shambolic' was too strong a word to describe this mishap but then I remembered how Giles and Dunphy have called offside lines that were slightly out of place a shambles on many many occasions.

So here we are, in a bizarre twist, actually analysing RTÉ's offside line from last night, instead of Bayern Munich's. What exactly is going on here? They seem to have drawn a line that goes along the Bayern back four, as opposed to one that is in line with the last defender.

'It's a disgrace Bill; an offside line like that at this level of football coverage... In my day we didn't even have a ruler to draw offside lines and they were perfect. Nowadays Bill, people are swanning around with iPads, and T-Squares and CAD design, it's all nonsense...'


Here are the panel using the above line to discuss if Ozil was offside.
