I have a question about side step.
first the rule :
A player with this skill is an expert at stepping neatly out of the way of an attacker. To represent this ability, his coach may choose which square the player is moved to when he is pushed back, rather than the opposing coach. Furthermore, the coach may choose to move the player to any adjacent square, not just the three squares shown on the Push Back diagram. Note that the player may not use this skill if there are no open squares on the pitch adjacent to this player. Note that the coach may choose which square the player is moved to even if the player is Knocked Down after the push back
My player is pushed back, all squares are NOT full (there is another player on each). Using side step, Am I allowed to force my player to be pushed on on of the players ?
Right now, it's not possible with the game. But the only time when it's forbidden it's when "there are no open squares on the pitch adjacent" and in that specific case, you can't use side step at all.
I always played it like that (meaning, never tried to push my player on other player if there are freee squares).
But this question raised during a match, so...
thanks for your answers
Edit : I corrected my post according to Darkson notice ^^
