6-1-4 Diagram

6-1-3; 6-1-4 (NEW); 6-1 PENALTY In MechaniGram A, K has only three players on one side of the kicker. If K4 shifts to the other side of the kicker by going more than five yards from the free kick line after the ready for play signal (PlayPic B), it is a dead ball foul for encroachment.

6-1-3; 6-1-4 (NEW); 6-1 PENALTY The formation in MechaniGram B is legal. In Mechanigram B, when K5 kicks the ball, there is still at least four players on either side of the kicker. There is no foul. K had no player more than five yards behind the kicking team's free kick line and had four on either side of the kicker at the time of the kick. 

6-1-3; 6-1-4 (NEW); 6-1 PENALTY The formation in MechaniGram B is legal. K5 (who was not more than five yards behind his free kick line) kicks the ball. That is a foul. When a player is more than five yards behind the kicking team's free kick line, that player is the only player who may legally kick the ball. 

6-1-4 NEW At the time the ball is kicked, at least four K players must be on each side of the kicker. In MechaniGram, K is guilty of encroachment, a dead ball foul.

6-1-4 The formation in the MechaniGram becomes illegal when the ball has been declared ready-for-play. K3, K4, K5 and K6 are all more than five yards from their free kick line. No K players, with the exception of the kicker may be more than five yards behind the kicking team’s free kick line.  A player satisfies this rule when no foot is on or beyond the line five yards behind K’s free kick.  If one player is more than five yards behind the restraining line and any other player kicks the ball, it is a foul.
