8/15/07 Football Meeting



Announcements games

Announcements / Games

New rules

New Rules

  • Field markings

    • If not marked, contact AD and WIAA

  • Future Rules

  • Read new definitions

    • Flagrant foul

    • Helmet contact

  • Passer – must be a legal forward pass

    • Can have a personal foul (different penalty)

  • Head coach disqualified

    • Can appoint a new one for calling timeouts

New rules that actually matter

New Rules That Actually Matter

  • Defensive foul on touchdown

    • Consistent with other scoring plays (except safety)

    • Can enforce penalty on PAT or ensuing KO

    • If another foul on PAT, have to choose

    • Does not carry over half-time or into overtime.

      • These are not “ensuing kickoffs”

    • Signals if fouls on both?



  • signal the penalty

  • signal the team committing the foul

  • signal that the TD counts

  • point upfield by using an arching motion with the outstretched arm to indicate the delayed enforcement

  • the BJ would walk off the penalty and give the signalNow if there was a foul on the try

  • give the penalty they were declining first, show it being declined

  • then give the one accepted and point upfield in the same way.

  • BJ just give the signal of the penalty he walked off.

New rules that actually matter1

New Rules That Actually Matter

  • New basic spot 10-5-6 and 7

    • Study this and review it before games

    • Fumble goes from the EZ, into the playing field, then OOB

      • Key is where is the end of the run

      • If it looks like a touchback (w/o fumble), basic spot is the 20.

      • If it looks like a safety (w/o fumble), basic spot is the goal line (as it has been).

Rule book and case book changes

Rule Book and Case Book Changes

  • Go to the football page on the National Federation page for corrections

2006 rule changes

2006 Rule Changes

  • four-snap chin strap shall required

  • Mouth guards shall be of any readily visible color, other than white or clear

  • Phones and headsets are permitted for use by anyone during a authorized sideline time-out

  • An authorized sideline time-out shall be held directly in front of the team box and within the 9-yard mark

  • A holder may now recover a snap and retain the same options of going back to a knee for the kick, advance, pass or running the ball.

    • It allows the holder to rise to catch a snap that has bounced in front of him.

    • The NOTE still says he can’t return to a knee after recovering a muffed or fumbled snap.

  • The option to use a “planned loose ball” has been removed.

  • The act of illegally touching the ball by an ineligible player carries the same penalty whether the act occurs behind, in or beyond the line of scrimmage – it is now illegal touching! 5-yards and loss of down.

2005 rule changes

2005 Rule Changes

  • 9-yard marks

    • Players have to be within 9-yard marks after the ready for play and before the snap

  • Do not extend a period for a foul that carries a loss of down penalty

  • No more “illegal procedure”

    • It’s illegal formation, illegal shift, illegal motion

  • Only one forward pass during a down

  • No pass interference away from the ball

  • Momentum exception now includes all loose balls

2004 rule changes

2004 Rule Changes

  • No limit on the number of team players who may participate in a timeout conference at the sideline

  • New Term - Forced Touching

    • The touching of the ball by a team R player that is caused by a Team K player pushing or blocking R into contact with the ball or if Team K muffs the ball into contact with R.

    • Forced touching of a kick is ignored.

  • The PSK window now opens when the ball is snapped (rather than when it crosses neutral zone). The position of the football when Team R fouls is not important.



  • Why is it important to penalize illegal formation?

    • Not enough players on the line – big deal

  • Really?

  • How many eligible receivers are there?

    • 4 backs (including QB) & 2 players on end of line = 6

  • Knowing that – defenses are designed to account for up to 5 or 6 receivers (someone has to pass the ball!)

  • Give the offense one more – defense can’t cover the extra reciever



  • Question 84 brought up a great topic

  • Free kick is laying still on the 5 yard line

  • R kicks it through his end zone

  • Result of Play

    • Touchback or safety?

  • Touchback

    • A kick is a kick is a kick.

    • 2-13-4 Force is not a factor on kicks going into R’s end zone, since these kicks are always a touchback regardless of who supplied the force (casebook 6.3.1)

    • 2-24-2 A kick ends when a player gains posession or when the ball becomes dead

  • Penalty enforcement

    • Loose ball play – basic spot is the previous spot

    • 5 yard penalty and rekick

Bubble coverage

Bubble Coverage

  • Theory – there are big bubbles and little bubbles we have to cover

    • Little bubble – the action around the ball

    • Big bubbles – everything else

  • Running Play

  • Passing Play

  • Scrimmage Kick

  • Kick off

  • FG/PAT kick

Goal post coverage

Goal Post Coverage

  • Starts a few steps back from the goal post

  • Even with your upright

  • BJ has upright and crossbar

  • Wing has upright

  • Communicate “yes” or “no” to each other

  • Take 3 or 4 steps straight out – together

  • Pause one step – signal

  • If wide – only the person on that side signals “wide”

  • If no good – stand up straight to give signal

    • Don’t bend over at waist

Swoa clinic

SWOA Clinic

  • My clinicians

    • Big 10/Arena League referee Dennis Lipske

    • Leading WIAC referee/ Arena League Terry ? From Oostburg

  • Others

    • Big 10 umpire

    • Several WIAA state officials

Swoa notes

SWOA Notes

  • Lipske uses Sharpie to write notes on his hand!

    • Kicker, QB

  • Good umpires create positive relationship with defense early – use it later when you need to straighten out stuff

  • Make it be there

  • Get the Big One

  • Wings – go to goal line on snap inside the 5 – NO MATTER WHICH DIRECTION YOU’RE GOING!

  • Umpires – have signal with wings to indicate you see the ball in the end zone

  • On scoring kicks – what if the wing doesn’t get to the goal post in time? Plan for it

  • Wings – always mirror each other’s spots

  • We were conspicuous in our non-attendance
