This keeps coming up.  Clear and obvious does NOT apply for offsides, it relates to when the decision could be in the opinion of the referee.

Offside is black and white, either the player was on or off, there is no opinion involved.

You say opinion is not involved but in the OPINION of the linesman he was onside and correctly awarded. A different official in his OPINION thinks itís offside incorrectly. Time to ditch the lines - they are confusing and unhelpful. When doing offside the image needs to be stopped in line with the last part of the body and in recent cases this isnít the case!
