I had nothing to do with the original point, but your comment made me happy and I wanted to share that. Thank you.-- 21:00, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

It wouldn't work in Dallas--the Dallas Memorial Arena is too high, and doesn't have a proper sprinkler system. It's just too old. -R, another former US FIRST member (#3392). 02:47, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

You would lose ranking points if the opposing alliance doesn't score anything. Also you will have destroyed your alliance partnr's robot. I'd try it with VEX first... (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

you could always score a token goal for your opponent?

Should we mention the fact of how much against the rules this is? I mean they are breaking at least three rules off the top of my head. 17:26, 11 October 2016 (UTC)

huh, nine years on and i read this. i understand we nerds don't do sport, and you americans don't do soccer. just a heads up, then. you say "soccer balls into their team's goals" which really isn't how soccer works, and would lose you the match. it goes against common usage, at least in the uk. is that a joke? a playful and wilful misunderstanding of the double meaning of "goal" as both "objective" and "opponents' scoring area"? it may be my goal/objective to score, but i will do so in my opponents' goal/net. too late now, though, and the high schooler who wrote this text has now left university. oh well. -- 09:27, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

They're not playing soccer - it's a robotics competition. There are balls placed on the field, and your team is scored by how many balls you manage to get into your goal - essentially the robot that can retrieve the most balls is the winner. So this article is exactly correct.-- 00:38, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
