I believe that clarification was generated by the following from the Q&A system:

Quote:
Q: What is the exact orientation of the mobile goal at the start of the match? Since the number of poles and number of sides are different, the choice of which goal face is flush against the deck changes the orientation of the poles.

A: The orientation will be random.
I would say it refers to the orienation of the PVC poles rather than the sides of the goal. I expect the goal to always have a flat side adjacent to the platform. Guess it might not be a bad idea to ask specifically ... so much for "clarification" ...
