We all know that if a player knocks on, anyone in his team in front of him is offside if he handles the ball.

Recently, there have been a couple of occasions where players have fumbled the ball BACKWARDS, so no knock-on, but players in the same team who were in front of the ball have picked it up.

Is that an offside, or not? I'm a bit baffled about this one.
I share no-one's ideas. I have my own.

Surely they have to retreat in order to be able to pick up the ball, so that puts them back onside. 

Personally I get annoyed when nearly every fumble gets penalised for a knock on, regardless of what direction it goes in, seems to happen a lot lately.

Ref wants a rest?
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

nope you can't be offside if the ball goes backwards
