Yes, the first lap is valid for setting the fastest lap. Before anything else, it's worth mentioning that the starting line and the finishing line are not at the same position because the finishing line must be in front of the race control tower. Since the full grid takes quite some space (specially with these ridiculously long cars we currently have), it ...

These are all completely different situations. A goal kick can only be taken within the goal area (the 6 yard box). (Law 16) A drop kick means the ball is still in play. The goalie could as well throw the ball to a team mate. Free kicks can be awarded almost anywhere on the pitch. They're taken from where the previous offence occurred. (Law 13)

As a Packer fan I remember the situation and recall that at the time this happened there was no rule demanding the coin to actually flip. Here is a video of Dean Blandino VP of officiating at the time explaining the situation, that by rule the coin didn't actually have to flip, but common sense dictated that it should in order for the flip to be fair. And ...

As a referee, having looked at that it's not at all illegal. It is the equivalent of a dummy, where the player pretends to pass but doesn't. The reasons for disallowing this would be if either player obstructed the opposition, which they don't. If the dummy occurred at a scrum, it is penalised by a free kick under Law 19.38.f.

You were correct. The specific rule depends on the exact rulebook your league uses, which you did not state. I’ll show the rules from the (international) WSBC Slow Pitch Softball Playing Rules (2018–2021): 5.10.3 a) A runner is out and the ball remains live when: […] vi. they physically pass a preceding runner before that runner has ...

A five-yard penalty against the defense for illegal hands to the face is an automatic first down. What distance the offence previously needed for the next set is irrelevant. They are granted a new first-and-ten from whatever position they obtain after the penalty is applied.

As the IITF rules state: 2.8.2 In doubles, except as provided in 2.8.3, the server shall first make a service, the receiver shall then make a return, the partner of the server shall then make a return, the partner of the receiver shall then make a return and thereafter each player in turn in that sequence shall make a return. 2.8.3 ...

This penalty situation will vary depending on the penalty, and where the penalty is enforced. Long and short of it: if the Penalty distance is more than half the distance from the spot the foul is enforced to the offender's goal line, it is "Half distance to the Goal". So, for example, if there was an Offensive Holding call, and the offence is on ...

No. Advantage should not be played for an offence which will result in a red card, regardless of what the reason for that red card is, unless there is an immediate goalscoring opportunity for the opponent of the offending player.

The whistle was not blown, at all. Play was never stopped. No player was penalised for offside. There was never a free kick. Alisson played the ball legally to Salah in the same way he and every other goalkeeper does regularly.

If I understand your explanation correctly: The first run was properly completed The second run was run short by the non-striker The striker was run out going for the third run. If it hadn't been for the short run, this would result in two runs scored and the striker being run out; however, due to the short run, only one run is scored - Law 18: 18.3.2 ...

The free kick awarded for a offence anywhere on the field is taken from the place where the foul occurred. It doesn't matter how close to the corner that is.

I found this video titled "The OFFICIAL History of NFL Rules!" and similar to the link in the question, it talks about rule changes over time from 1920 to 2019. It's uploaded from a channel of the verified NFL youtube account, so the title should be trusted. Here are the rule changes it mentions. I've bolded those that I deemed that are directly or ...

No, it is not legal What you seem to be describing is a violation known as Goaltending. Touching the ball when it is in or over the ring is a violation and the opposing team is awarded the points associated with the shot. The relevant ruling states: Section I—A Player Shall Not: i. Touch the rim, net or ball while the ball is in the net, preventing it from ...

It is your opponent's turn. You were on the 8 and designated the pocket. With the cue ball, you struck your ball first, the 8 ball, which is the 1st requirement for a legal hit. A ball - as in any ball - was pocketed, or hit a rail, which meets the 2nd and final requirement for a legal hit. There was no foul, nor did you pocket your ball. Therefore, your ...

If your opponent's serve is short, then the ball is dead immediately and the rally is over. You don't have a choice to return a short serve. This is unlike a serve that's going long, which you can choose to play before it goes long, provided you do so before it hits the back wall and becomes a dead ball. This is because the ball is still in play until ...

Using equipment to pressure the face or neck is hands to the face. It is quite common to see a defensive lineman get a hands to the face penalty when hitting the players neck. The other option the ref has is to give him a misconduct which is 15. Also both lines can hold the shoulder pads in the front chest area. I don't think you can find this in a ...
