    It's all about when the ball is kicked.

    At the exact moment when it is kicked the team mate who receives the ball has to have a defender between himself and the goal.

    Imagine freeze-framing a replay at the exact time when the ball is kicked and draw a line across the field where the player is that receives the ball, he has to have a defender closer to goal than he is, even if it is only 1cm that is enough.

    The umpire/referee will call offside if the ball is passed to a player on the attacking team that is in between the last player on the defending team and the defending teams goalie ( assuming we are talking about soccer )
