A defender committing an indirect free kick offense would do it.

Indirect free kicks are not promoted to penalty kicks when inside the penalty area.

There are 8 offenses that can result in an indirect free kick:

  • goal keeper controls the ball with his hands for more than six seconds before releasing it from his possession
  • goal keeper touches the ball again with his hands after he has released it from his possession and before it has touched another player
  • goal keeper touches the ball with his hands after it has been deliberately kicked to him by a team-mate
  • goal keeper touches the ball with his hands after he has received it directly from a throw-in taken by a team-mate
  • plays in a dangerous manner
  • impedes the progress of an opponent
  • prevents the goal keeper from releasing the ball from his hands
  • commits any other offense for which play is stopped to caution or send off a player

Can a football player hit the kicker during a punt after the ball has been kicked and the kicker is still in the air?

No, this would be considered a roughing the punter penalty and the punting team would be awarded a 15 yard penalty and a first down. The only exception to this would be if the referee ruled that the player that hit the punter made contact because of being blocked by a member of the punting team. In this case, the referee will not call the penalty.

In hockey if a team scores with a delayed penalty do they still go on the power play?

The power play technically begins the moment the referee signals the penalty, and the non-penalized team has the option to pull its goalie for an extra attacker. If the non-offending team scores during a delayed penalty call, a 2 minute minor penalty is not assessed. If the penalty is a double minor, or a second penalty is to be assessed during the delayed call, the previous penalty is negated upon a goal scored and the second penalty is then enforced.

Can you call for a review of a play to see if there is a penalty in the NFL?

No. You cannot challenge a judgment call by a referee and a penalty is a judgment call.However, if during the review the officials determine that there were 12 players on the field at the time of the play, that penalty can be administered. But a coach cannot officially call for a review due to his thinking that the referees missed a penalty on the play.Actually, penalties such as illegal forward pass, forward pass beyond the line of scrimage, and touching of the ball by an ineligable receiver are reviewable. So penaties that are factual are reviewable.

How do you question an official during a hockey game?

The official(s) (referee) are supposed to refrain from discussing any questions regarding penalty calls etc. with players. Those types of discussions should only take place between the Captain, Alternate Captains and/or the Coaching staff. If your captain believes there is an issue with any call, particularly one that can change the game like a penalty stroke or penalty shot, they should quietly ask the referee about it at an appropriate time, such as when time is next stopped or while preparations are being made for the play and the referee is not busy. If another player believes there is a problem, they should ask their captain to speak on their behalf.
