ART. 2-5-1 . . . Clipping is a block against an opponent when the initial contact is from behind, at or below the waist, and not against a player who is a runner or pretending to be a runner.ART. 2-5-2 . . . Blocking in the back is a block against an opponent when the initial contact is in the opponent's back, inside the shoulders and below the helmet and above the waist, and not against a player who is a runner or pretending to be a runner.ART. 2-9-3 . . . A valid fair-catch signal is the extending and lateral waving of one arm, at full arm's length above the head, by any R player.ART. 2-9-4 . . .

After the kick has touched the ground.Force 2-13ART. 1 . . . Force is the result of energy exerted by a player which provides movement of the ball. The term force is used only in connection with the goal line and in only one direction, i.e., from the field of play into the end zone. Initial force results from a carry, fumble, kick, pass or snap. After a fumble, kick or backward pass has been grounded, a new force may result from a bat, an illegal kick or a muff.ART. 2 . . . Responsibility for forcing the ball from the field of play across a goal line is attributed to the player who carries, snaps, passes, fumbles or kicks the ball, unless a new force is applied to either a kick, fumble or backward pass that has been grounded.ART. 3 . . . The muffing or batting of a pass, kick or fumble in flight is not considered a new force.ART. 4 . . . Force is not a factor:a. On kicks going into R's end zone, since these kicks are always a touchback regardless of who supplied the force.b. When a backward pass or fumble is declared dead in the end zone of the opponent of the player who passed or fumbled, with no player possession.ART. 2-29-1 . . . A player or other person is out of bounds when any part of the person is touching anything, other than another player or game official that is on or outside the sideline or end line.
