“Trying to achieve a different result
by doing it the same old way”
In Rule 2, butt blocking, face tackling and spearing are now under "Helmet Contact -- Illegal".
Examples of illegal helmet contact that could result in disqualification include, but are not limited to:
a) illegal helmet contact against an opponent lying on the ground
b) illegal helmet contact against an opponent being held up by other players and
c) illegal helmet-to-helmet contact against a defenseless opponent.
A flagrant foul will be defined as a foul that may or may not involve physical contact, but involves such acts as fighting, contacting a game official, fouls so severe as to place an opponent at risk, persistent or extreme abusive conduct and the use of vulgar language or gestures.
1-2-3d: A 4-inch-wide broken restraining line shall be placed around the outside of the field, at least 2 yards from the sidelines and end lines, as an extension of the line limiting the team box area.
The only exception to this rule will be in stadiums where the total field enclosure does not permit the line.
1-2-3k: A line, 4 inches wide and a minimum of 24 inches in length, shall be centered in the field
In Rule 8-2-2, an enforcement option has been added when there is a foul by the opponent of a team scoring a touchdown. In addition to its previous option of accepting the result of the play and having the penalty enforced on the try-for-point, the scoring team may choose to have the foul enforced on the ensuing kickoff.
The basic spot will be the 20-yard line for plays when the end of the related run is in the end zone followed by a loss of possession and the ball re-enters the playing field and then goes out of bounds.
A coach who assumes the head coaching responsibility during a game (when the head coach has been disqualified) to call a time-out.
The following are theONLYallowable exceptions to the NHFS Mechanic Manual !!!!!
L will move downfield to the same yard line as B(III.A.1) except when the ball is snapped inside the 3 yard line.
B to begin 20-25 yards from snap and always deeper than the deepest Team B player (V.A.1)
SWINGING GATE - Officials stay in the normal scrimmage position (B under the hook post, R covering the non-hook post) until the kicking team shifts into kicking formation. Following the shift, officials will assume normal positions for FG.
For scrimmage plays, the Linesman and Line Judge will always have initial responsibility for the widest eligible receiver to their side. B has inside receiver(s).
Trips – B has inside two receivers, Stacked – B has two flanked (backfield) receivers.
To be ruled a catch the receiver must be able to demonstrate and maintain firm control of the football. When in doubt if the player establishes firm control, he has not.
Blocking in the Back (IBB)
Line of Scrimmage/Formations
Runner Down (Forward Progress)
Have a Great Season!!!!
