From this, one concludes that if the offside player gets the ball far from anybody else, dribbles to the goal, and scores, he's not interfering with play because there's nobody else around. Or if there is a footrace between this offside attacker and the goalkeeper for a through ball, and the goalkeeper gets there first, then the offside player didn't interfere with play. That is not true. I believe people who play the game understand there are more ways to be involved in play than touching the ball or bumping into an opponent.
