In the beautiful game of football or soccer. a pointback is used to give credit to the assister of a goal, or the playmaker, rather than the actual goal scorer. they get credit maybe because they gave a extraordinary pass or cross. or even referred to a manager on the sideline who made a smart move for the team.

this definition can be applied to other sports like football or basketball. not baseball tho....

the most famous of playmakers would be zinadin zidane or kaka, or xavi or iniesta and most famously guti
martin tyler: "guti, has the ball...does well to hhold it so real madrid forwards can come up. find robben outside footed cross, robben recieves it, gets past the keeper. GOOOLLLAZZZOOO!!!"

andy gray: well Guti deserves a pointback for that one. great vision of the field
