Can you provide the plays on film? That would help us have a better understanding if they were fouls. But here is the rule. Remember infc goes by federation rules unless defined differently in the INFC playbook

a. Butt Blocking is an act by any player who initiates contact against an opponent who is not a runner with the front of his helmet.

b. Face Tackling is an act by a defensive player who initiates contact against a runner with the front of his helmet.

c. Spearing is an act by any player who initiates contact against an opponent at the shoulders or below with the crown (top portion) of his helmet.
