    The play was not offsides (abseits) therefore it was *onsides*.

    The colloquial version with S may be more common in AE -- I was asking myself that when I was thinking about it the other day.

    There's also some overlap with American football, which also uses 'offside' meaning, roughly, to jump the gun, move across the line of scrimmage before the ball is snapped, which stops the play and costs yards.

    There too you often hear it with the S, but I don't think it's actually correct.
