shot on goal[edit]

Looks spuriously like a shot on goal. Note, definition is incorrect, what it describes is a shot on target. A shot on goal (in the UK anyway) is just any shot at the opponent's goal. Accuracy doesn't matter. Mglovesfun (talk) 12:23, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

I think it has a more particular meaning in ice hockey. It is one of the main statistics reported for a professional game thereof. DCDuring TALK 13:26, 10 August 2011 (UTC)
I think the meaning in ice hockey in the States is a shot on a goal, even if it one of the main stats reported. It does have unusual structure (no article before goal); see [[WT:SURVIVOR#Once upon a time test]].​—msh210 (talk) 00:02, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
In baseball they have the games played statistic, I don't think we want an entry for that here, outside of appendices. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:44, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

I think the unusual grammatical arrangement makes it worth keeping. bd2412 T 04:20, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

It's the same case ãs tir au but in French (same sense). It's normal to keep it (reasoning on the meaning does not help in such cases, knowledge of the language is the key). Lmaltier 08:14, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
