The convoluted mess I get into of beers with some of the local guys: Once you've obtained LGP you can maintain it by moving sideways or backwards. However if you don't maintain your legal guarding position you must re-establish or establish it again before your movements maintain it. Their argument is that if offense clearly gains space or a new line that the defense isn't moving to maintain their LGP but must now establish LGP again. In the case of the video this would mean the player was still establishing their LGP at the point on contact as their 2nd foot was not down.

I don't buy it but I don't have to.
Coach: Hey ref I'll make sure you can get out of here right after the game!

Me: Thanks, but why the big rush.

Coach: Oh I thought you must have a big date . . .we're not the only ones your planning on F$%&ing tonite are we!
