Why it's important... #2

Not buying the idea of the goal celebration ritual, and the vital part the goalnets play in retaining the ball? Consider the one occasion when the goal celebration is deliberately cut short.

Late in the game, a side that's a goal or two down scores a goal and the goalscorer hurries to retrieve the ball from the net so they can get the game re-started quickly. See Brian McClair in the clip below.

McClair breaks the goal celebration ritual by not allowing the pause that follows the goal.

Without the pause, the goal is not properly celebrated. McClair runs past his colleagues, shaking hands etc.

McClair's goal is not properly celebrated because he has removed the ball from the goalnets.
