The original offside rule was that if any attacking player is ahead of the last defender when the ball is played then the attacking player must be given offside. The player must be given offside even if he doesn't receive the pass. The new rule is that the player can only be given offside if he is interfering with play i.e. he receives the ball, he obstructs defending players, blcoks the goalkeepers view, etc.

One of the main changes, the offside rule, was introduced to prevent strikers from 'goal hanging'. Before the rule was introduced, players could basically stand by the oppositions goal and wait for a long pass, making it easier to score. The offside rule states that a player cannot participate in play if he is behind the second last opposition defender (which may include the opposition goal keeper) and ahead of the ball at the moment the ball is passed. If he does, an indirect free kick is awarded to the opposition team. This rule means that if the defenders are, for example, by the half way line, an opposing striker can't goal hang because, when he receives a pass, he will be in an offside position.

Its called Offside, or being in an offside position. Being in an offside position, in and of itself, is not a foul. The foul occurs when the ball is PLAYED to the PERSON in an offside position. You can be "passive", not involved in the play, in an offside position and there is no foul.

The ball cannot be offside. Players can be in an offside position.

The offside rule, or Law 11, is designed to add more sporting play to soccer. The International Football Association Board (IFAB, the group the writes and updates the Laws of the Game, of which FIFA is a member) believed that since without the offside rule, teams would post one or two players near the opposing goal to collect and score on long balls. Before there was offside, this was legal, but unsporting. By adding the offside rule, players would have to be onside at the moment their teammate plays the ball (if they become involved in play), or the other team would get a free kick. As a result, the game became more exciting, more sporting, more tactical, and ultimately more fair.
