    Teams do use it, but it needs practice, to perfect it. It requires the defending players to be switched on to moving up at the right time, to catch the attacker offside.

    You mean having all the defensive players not going past a certain point. There’s just one problem. It’s not offside if the player passes the ball when the offensive players are in front of the defensive players. Let’s say the defense line is 20 yards in front of their own goal. The offense is 25 yards from the goal. The player that has the ball kicks it. As soon as he kicks it, the offense is free to go pass the defense.

    Explain what you mean? The offside rule is only enforced if a player is offside.
