and full speed that is tough to do
99% of the time -- if they know they are near the division line, they will actually jump to land in the BC. Give them the benefit of the doubt.

If they just try to stop in the FC, then assume they did that with the first foot (and, thus, a BC violation).

Not one player in 1000 knows the specific rule we are discussing -- so no one is going to try to use it.
