R 9.1.6c kicks

R 9.1.6 c. Kicks
During a down in which there is a free kick or scrimmage kick, blocking below the
waist by any player is illegal except against a ball carrier.

If there is a legal BBW before the kick - does than then become an illegal block once the ball is kicked ?
Say for instance it is a broken play with a bad snap and there is a BBW while a player is attempting to recover the ball and then punts the ball when he does.
For every coach that thinks we got it wrong there's another that thinks we got it right.

Yes. It might make sense to ignore a BBW by team B but never by team A. You may end up throwing a "late" flag.
