I haven't been able to find any online discussion which would elucidate further. Everyone else discussing it is, at best, at a loss to explain it. However, here's what I think must have happened,...

That would be interesting if it's true. If you're snapping hand-to-hands, there is that instant where the snapper has slapped the ball into a quarterback's hands and both at once have at least one...

The rule explicitly (needlessly IMO) covers the case where the ball strikes the ground, with or without being muffed by a receiver. And I already wrote upthread that NFL used to have a rule that...

*NFL defines "pass" so as to include handing the ball. This was the old rule before NCAA defined "handing the ball" separately. Strangely enough, NFL too now has a definition of "handing the ball",...

It obviously wasn't a planned play, which in NCAA and Fed rules wouldn't kill the ball anyway, but be flagged live. But I'm pretty sure the NFL never legislated against that anyway.

Is this a snap infraction? (NFL)

From a compilation on YouTube. (https://youtu.be/1IZOpPYcy14?t=73) I can't see anything illegal about it, just that the snapper goofed and the officials bailed the team out instead of allowing the...

What I gather from this discussion is that, for a ruling of batting a loose ball, the player who does so has to know or perceive that the ball is loose to begin with -- that the mere intention to...

Various players of both sides had opportunity to do so. But the batting -- he was trying to propel the ball in that direction, so isn't that intentional?

No, I mean after he fumbled it. When his hand knocked the ball forward.

Is this batting by #13?

How could the fumble stand without subsequent batting? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grGxTt_C1L4&lc=Ugwl3Zm2xdbKzIvDHSp4AaABAg.9UbemhegtSA9UdIxBsDhC-)

No. Maybe you're thinking about non-player or unsportsmanlike fouls. Here it's just 2 fouls by the same team during the same live ball, which in both Fed and NCAA are handled as you described.

When does a Point of Emphasis stop applying?

If it doesn't appear in one edition of the rule book, but did in a previous one, should it still be treated as a point of emphasis?
