Variant(s):  pieline, pie line

Classification: English

Spotted in the wild:

  • Just last week in a wind game against the Steelers Gramatica hooked the FG so right it hit the orange pie line in the endzone!!! (Dynasty Central, Oct. 28, 2003)
  • The knocks on Williams are his size and his speed, but many of the greatest backs of all time are the same size; Emmitt Smith, Barry Sanders, etc., and if you’ve ever seen him get outside on those speedy SEC linebackers and find that pie-line, then you wouldn’t be worried about his forty time. (Rateitall, Carnell Williams, Jan. 21, 2005)
  • When he did that, the ball came loose (he was still in bounds) and hit the pie-line (that orange stick), and the ball went out of bounds. (, Sep. 20, 2005)
