Again, I've quoted the important part of Freix's post.

Here's what I have argued:

Exclude NCAA and OBR, which have black letter law or official interpretation that arm motion is not required during the 3-1 play.

FED says: "A feint is a movement which simulates the start of a pitcher or a throw to a base...."

I care not a whit the outcome of any "official interpretation" from the NFHS. I am not arguing whether arm motion is required to avoid deception; I never have. I only argue that the FED language does not support the concept of a feint without arm motion.

Simply put:

One cannot THROW with one's foot. Agreed?

Therefore, one cannot SIMULATE A THROW with one's foot.

Change the language.
