Poor Commentary[]

Commentators will often claim that an individual or team has been denied by the woodwork (or specifically the bar or the post). The implication of this would be that the 'woodwork' had moved and blocked the ball on it's way into the goal. This ignores the fact that the 'woodwork' actually defines the goal area and if the ball hits the 'woodwork' and doesn't go in then it was not actually on target.

Phrase 'Woodwork'

Goal frames are not made of wood.
