4-3-1 In PlayPic A, since the receiver possesses the free kick before he touched out of bounds with the ball inside the sideline plane, he is considered to have caused the ball to be out of bounds. The ball will be put in play at the inbounds spot on the 14 yard line. In PlayPic B, since there was no touching by R prior to the player being out of bounds, K has caused the free kick to go out of bounds R may either put the ball in play 25 yards beyond the previous spot, or have the 5 yard penalty enforced against the kicking team from the previous spot and kick off again.
6-1-9 It is a foul if a free kick untouched by R goes out of bounds between the goal lines. R may accept a 5-yard penalty from the previous spot and have K rekick; accept a 5-yard penalty from the succeeding spot; put the ball in play at the inbounds spot 25 yards beyond the previous spot; or decline the penalty and put the ball in play at the inbounds spot.
