'It WAS a goal!'
'Naw it wisnae!... It couldnae have been, I had my arms at full stretch and it wis MILES above my hands.'
If you've ever played football down the local park as a kid, you'll have had this and many conversations like it. Did somebody score? Did they not? How can you tell?
In public park games between pals, it generally comes down to consensus. If enough people say 'goal', then the goal stands. It's pretty much that simple.
In professional sport, of course, such consensus would be impossible ... that's why some poor sods are employed to run around a football pitch, getting stuck in the middle of everything... to try, as best they can, to eliminate the need for that consensus.

"Quick, Betty, get the telly on ... Pat Nevin's pullin' the away teams in the Scottish Cup draw."
Be honest. Have you ever tuned into a cup draw because of who may or may not be pulling the balls from the bowl? Be more honest, unless there's a chance of another car-crash appearance from Rod Stewart, do you care who makes the draw in the future?
No, of course you don't. All you really care about is who your team gets ... and hope it's a home draw (if you are a Rangers(2012) fan that's virtually guaranteed).
