Player Control or Block

Play 1:

(a) A1 catches a pass in mid-air and B1 slides into a spot while A1 is in the air and there is a crash as A1 lands.

This would be a block correct bc B1 was not there before A1 elited?

(b) A1 catches a pass in mid-air with his back to B1 and B1 had already established this position before A1 elited, there is a crash as A1 lands.

Player control foul?

Play2:

A1 catches a pass with both feet on the ground, elites into a jump stop. As A1 elites on jump stop B1 (who had legal guarding positon before A1 elited) moves forward into the space that A1 is jumping into. Upon landing A1 and
B1 crash.

Block because B1 moved into this positon while A1 was in the air?

Please respond. Thanks.

I think so. I'm not understanding your use of the word "elite". Do you mean "elevate?"

Again, probably, depending on your def of elite.

Yes elevate (or elevated) or airborne. Sorry about the bad grammar.

Then it looks to me like you have a good understanding of the rules involved. You're right on all counts.

Major props for understanding the rules and for attempting to use the correct terminology of the game. I think you were looking for the word alight?

Maybe, but that's just as confusing -- "alight" means "land"

Or 'on fire'. Oh, wait, I guess that doesn't help either.

Build a man a fire, and he'll have comfort for one night. Light a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life!

Again depending on what this verb means, if A1 had both feet on the floor when he caught the pass, I'm not sure if he can elite or not, but I'm sure he cannot legally land while still holding the ball.


elite: 12 spaces per inch, as opposed to pica, which has 10 spaces per inch

elite: a particular model of the Ford Grand Torino back in the '70's
