I've also never understood why hockey teams don't take advantage of line changes in hockey more. It seems that the moment your opponent's players are headed for the sidelines, that would be an excellent time to suddenly make a break for their goal. Yet teams seem to just wait until everybody's set again.

Can you imagine if football was played like this? Not playing defense until the 50 yard line?

Do any other sports have "loopholes" or overlooked strategies that would give underdog Davids an edge against Goliaths?
