yeah, obviously a bit slower to fall on your ass then to dive forward or even stay up skating.

The only time I can really imagine would be a player falling, maybe cutting back to come onsides and loosing an edge.

But for some reason it made sense that a player sliding on his back wouldn't be onsides the moment his boot goes over, i.e. you have to have your blade down...
