Our crew has called it twice this year I think.  Once on my side and once on the other.  We talk to the receivers and 'remind' them they need to be inside the numbers before the RFP. Both times were with no huddle offenses.  The receivers go straight to where they are supposed to line up and not getting inside.  The hurry up puts the defense at a disadvantage due to circumventing the rule. Talking, Reminding and even coming in to hold them at the numbers before the whistle can all help prevent this flag.  The other wing and I have also discussed we say to the top of the numbers but don't enforces till the bottom of the numbers.
It should be AFTER the ready for play.
