View Full Version : Question about kickoff

Why exactly does the ref call it illegal touching whenever you kick onside? If you aren't allowed to do it, why have it as an option? I'll recover the ball, but right as soon as I do, there goes the whistle. Anyone have any idea as to what causes this and what can be done to fix it?

Touching the ball before it goes 10 yards or is touched by the opposing team.
