Pass hits Goal Post

A on B's 5 yard line. As pass is tipped by B then hits the goal post which bounces back to player A who catches the ball in the end zone. What do you have, touchdown or incomplete?

CANADIAN RULING:

Incomplete as soon as the ball hits the goal post. No need to wait before blowing it dead.

If goal posts are out of bounds then why when a try for point or field goal attempt hits the goal post and goes through it counts as a score?

Have you ever actually looked at a set of goalposts?

A kick touching the crossbar or upright and continuing through the goal is an exception listed in 4-2-2d.

You're comparing a kicking rule to a throwing rule. Can't do that. Well you can, but there aren't any similarities.

Sure you can. When a live ball touches something OOB, the ball is dead by rule, whether it's a pass, a kick, or any other loose ball. The question is perfectly reasonable.

Only an explicit exception allows a kick to score by passing through the goal. HLinNC has quoted it.

This isn't that difficult. The NCAA rules, and I would suspect Fed is similar, declares that a kick striking a goal post, but going through the uprights, is an exception to the rule that would make it OOB on other plays, such as one involving a pass that hits it.

I haven't had a pass hit the post, but I've had a kid run with the ball after a kick hit it. We shut it down pretty quickly and only needed a very quick explanation.

We have fields here where the goal post padding is protruding into the field. If a player or ball contacts that padding, they are out of bounds. Otherwise, we are justing trying to split hairs to prove the absurd.
