Football Rules #1

Postby Grizfan-24 » Sun Aug 11, 2013 9:15 am

I thought I would do this every once in a while. I'll post a few examples of football rules, and maybe some baseball rules as well, and I'll see if people can correct interpret the rule.

This week there are three.
#1 Delay of Game
#2 Field Goals
#3 Pass Interference

Thanks again for reading.

The first two I have no clue about the high school rules.

The third one I believe as long as the DB is in contact with the WR he has a 5 or 10 yard (?) cushion where he can have physical contact with the WR. Not sure of the distance I want to say college and pro is 5 yards and high school 10?

If the DB loses contact within that cushion he cannot re engage with the WR

No idea on the first two.

The last one, I'm not sure if there is any contact allowed within 5 yards, but it is pass interference for sure after 5 yards, regardless if the ball was thrown past everybody by 15/20 yards, because if I'm remembering correctly, any ball is "catchable" in high-school rules regardless of how far over-thrown it is, so at least mugging the guy past 5 yards is interference. Good topic! Looking forward to the "official" answers!
