        REVIEWABLE PLAYS
                   Rule 12 Changes
   Not Applicable under MIAA, rule 12 will not
    be in effect for any Massachusetts High
    School games, regular season or Playoffs.
     Notable Editorial Changes
                      2-19-3-b
b. A player has crossed the neutral zone if his
  entire body has been beyond the neutral zone.
 Changes the interpretation of a QB over the line
  for a pass.
     Notable Editorial Changes
                       2-27-7-b
b. A ball carrier is a runner in possession of a live
  ball.
 New definition of Ball Carrier to distinguish
  from a player simulating carrying the ball.
 There are several editorial changes that insert
  “ball carrier”.
         Notable Editorial Changes
                                   2-30-4-d
d. A new running play begins when a player gains or regains
   possession.
 This changes the old adage, no longer is there only one running
   play behind the NZ.
   PLAY: A 2/10 on the A-37. QB A12 rolls to the right and B44 grasps and
    twists A12’s facemask at the A-31. A12 gets free and pitches the ball
    backwards to A80 at the A-28. A80 runs to the B-40 where he is downed.
    RULING: Since the foul occurred during A12’s run that is the related run for
    the foul, A12’s run ended behind the NZ, so the previous spot is the basic
    spot. A will decline the foul and will take the ball A 1/10 at the B-40. (2-30-
    4-d, 10-2-2-c-2)
       Notable Editorial Changes
                     3-1-3-g-1 & 8-3-4-a
Distance penalties against either team are declined by rule (in extra
  periods) (Exceptions: Penalties for flagrant personal fouls, dead-
  ball fouls and live-ball fouls treated as dead-ball fouls are
  enforced on the succeeding kickoff or at the succeeding spot in
  extra periods (succeeding play)).
 This standardizes how we enforce penalties after a change of
  possession on the try and in extra periods.
 Also, it adds flagrant personal fouls back into the fouls that we
  will enforce at the succeeding spot.
       Notable Editorial Changes
                     3-1-3-g-3 & 8-3-4-c
If both teams foul during the down and Team B had not fouled
   before the change of possession, the fouls offset, and the down
   is not replayed (and the try is over).
 This standardizes the way we deal with offsetting fouls on the try
   and in extra periods.
 Also, this clarifies what to do if team B fouls both before and
   after the change of possession.
       Notable Editorial Changes
                              3-2-5-e
e. When Team B is awarded a first down and will next snap the ball, the
   clock will be stopped and will start on the snap.
 PLAY: A 4/3 on the A-42. QB A12 hands the ball off to running
   back A32. A32 runs to the A44 where he is downed inbounds. At the
   snap team B was offside. RULING: A 1/10 on the A-47. Start the
   clock on the ready for play. (3-2-5-a-1)
 PLAY: A 4/3 on the A-42. QB A12 drops back to pass and throws
   the ball over the outstretched arms of A80 and the ball falls
   incomplete. At the snap team B was offside. RULING: A 1/10 on
   the A-47. Start the clock on the snap. (3-2-5-c)
     Notable Editorial Changes
                         6-1-2
(Second sentence) The referee will declare the ball
  ready for play when the officials are in position
  after the kicker has received the ball.
 We no longer blow the ready as soon as the
  kicker gets the ball, wait for the U to get into
  position. I think we were doing this anyways.
     Notable Editorial Changes
                       7-3-2-a
a. If thrown by a Team A player whose entire body
    is beyond the neutral zone when he releases the
    ball [S35 and S9].
 As stated earlier, the passers whole body must
    be over the line.
         Notable Editorial Changes
                               7-3-2 Exception
Exception: It is not a foul when the passer, who is or has been outside the frame of the body
   of the normal tackle position toward a sideline, throws the ball so that it
   crosses the neutral zone or neutral zone extended (Rule 2-19-3) (A.R. 7-3-2-
   IX).
 The change here is from lands to crosses, which is significant because of the
   definition of “crosses”. Also it explicitly states that if it crosses the NZ
   extended it is not a foul.
 PLAY: A 3/5 on the A-38. QB A12 drops back and is flushed from the
   pocket under a heavy rush. He attempts to throw the ball away from the A-
   29. The ball is tipped by B67 at the A-35 and the ball lands inbounds at the
   A-42. RULING: Intentional grounding. Ball will be placed at the spot of the
   foul and loss of down. A 4/14 on the A-29. This is reading the rules as
   written, waiting for official ruling from Secretary Editor.
         Notable Editorial Changes
   There are several instances where they clean up
    the language regarding “tack-on” penalties on
    scrimmage and free kicks.
   See the Highlighted version of the rulebook on
    the web site and match it up with your 2007
    book to see the other changes. The rule book
