    If it hits the ball of the shoulder and goes, the hardest point of the shoulder - then its fine.

    If you use the side padding of your shoulder, i.e try to score a goal with your shoulder side on - thats its not a goal.

    my answer is the best, its not an essay lol

    I think with the new interpretation of the handball laws, I don't think so, even if it just hits you.

    Yes, you can, but you must be careful as to where you allow the ball to come into contact with your body in that area. Playing the ball on the front, back and top of the shoulder are usually not a problem. It is when you play a ball on the "outside" of the shoulder that you may have difficulties. A ball played on the outside of the shoulder might be seen as being played on the upper arm, and the arms and hands cannot be used to fairly play a ball. It will be the referee, or possibly his assistant, who will have to decide if a violation of the Laws of the Game has occurred. Note that if the arm is pressed to the body of the player, it might be easier for the official to determine that there was no intent to play the ball with the arm, and the play may be not be seen as a hand ball. But the referee will be the final authority in this issue.

    No it would be hand ball even if it didn't hit hand.

    and if you're a diminuitive, binge drinking alcoholic from Argentina, you can score a goal by putting it into the net with your hand, due do criminally stupid referees.
