Illegal Blocks
« on: November 12, 2017, 12:45:33 PM »
Here is a clip worth watching. The second onside kick has what I would call 2 fouls. Offside and at least one if not multiple illegal blocks on the receivers by the kicking team.

I was wondering how long it'd take before this showed up here. The second onside kick definitely has a good example of illegal blocking by K before the ball went 10 yards.

Here is a video of the whole game, queued up to the second onside kick. If you rewind to 1:55:00, you can see the whole comeback.

Textbook illegal block by both K4 and K45 IMO.

"Offside" or encroachment ,as we call it, kills the play so any ensuing action would be disregarded unless it was deemed to be a personal foul. Remember, an illegal block on a free kick is only a 10 yard penalty (9-3-8).
