Roughing the kicker
« on: September 13, 2022, 10:15:47 am »
There was a penalty this weekend the team was flagged for roughing the kicker ( on a punt) it was 4th and 16. The ref walked off the 15 yards but left it at 4th and 1. is this not an automatic 1st down, being it was a personal foul?

Roughing the kicker, passer or snapper should all include an automatic first down.  I will point that out in my newsletter to the officials this week.  What location and time was your game?

A ton of missed calls in this game, crack backs and holding calls. BA had a kid disqualified for throwing a punch when in reality was trying to hit the ball out of the ball carrier's hand.
