Ok..I think I understand the screening rules pretty well, but what restrictions are there on the screened player? For example, A1 sets a screen on moving defender B1. A1 is stationary, and gives B1 2 strides. B1 contacts A1 in a horrendous crash. Is this a foul on B1? Is this always a foul if the screened player makes any type contact with the screener, or does it have to be fairly violent??
The screened player must make an *attempt to avoid* screener.
(ie, The screened player may not push through, pull through, grab through, hack through the screen.)

If an "attempt to avoid is made", I will not generally call illegal contact unless there is that "horrendous crash".
