I am with Cobra on this. The NFL has specific replay procedures which differ from what you or me would do in situations like this.

The ruling on the field was a TD so the crew did not need to...

I believe the NFL only allows at most one foul to be enforced. So in the NFL if you have 11 dead ball fouls on Team A and 1 on Team B, they would offset.

So in NFHS, the ball is dead simultaneously caught even though neither player may be down? Or was this a typo?

Canadian Ruling

Interestingly enough, in Canada we do not award a safety for this. We let the "punishment fit the crime." If Team B intercepts the ball in the end zone and then commits a foul in the end zone (with...

The Two Flakes play said nothing of where the BALL was when the hold occurred. This is not the same place as where the FOUL is (though in some cases it could be.)

Canadian Ruling:

First Scenario:
Assuming the ball was at the 38 when the foul occured, the penalty is enforced from there since 1st down yards have been gained. So the result after the 10 yards...

This is where the Canadian version is perhaps better worded since its code set stipulates that a player who leaves the field of play (with exceptions) must not participate further in the play.

Canadian Ruling

So we are...
