Nfl free kick rule?

Technically, a "free kick" is any kick that is not a scrimmage kick. In other words, any time the ball is put into play by kicking, and the ball is not snapped on a normal scrimmage down, it is a free kick. This includes kickoffs, as well as kicks following a safety or fair-catch. The kick following a safety is unique because it is the only type of free kick where the kicker has the choice of punting the ball or kicking it off a tee. (In fact, they could dropkick it as well.) Because of this, many people mistakenly think that "free kick" means the kicker can choose how to kick the ball, when in fact that is only true of the free kick after a safety. The normal rules for kickoffs apply to all free kicks: The ball must travel 10 yards before the kicking team can recover it (unless first touched by a receiver), and it must not go out of bounds.

What type of free kick is awarded for an offside in soccer?

When play is stopped for an offside offense, play is restarted with an indirect free kick from the spot where the offending player was when his teammate last played the ball, which may be quite some distance from the location of the ball or player when play is finally stopped. If the placement of the ball is within the goal area, the ball may be placed anywhere inside the goal area (similar to a goal kick, except that it is indirect). If the placement of the ball is within the penalty area (including the goal area), the ball is not in play and may not be touched again by any player until it travels directly out of the penalty area. As with any free kick, the player taking the kick may not touch the ball again until it has touched another player. As with any indirect free kick, a goal may not be scored until the ball touches another player (if the ball goes directly into the opponent's goal, the restart is a goal kick). As with any free kick, an own-goal may not be scored directly, and play would be restarted with a corner kick if it happens.

Can you fair catch a kick off?

Yes. Any kick, punt or kickoff, can be fair caught. One major difference between fair catching a punt and fair catching a kickoff is that the kickoff is a free kick. Where a punt returner deep in his own territory may call for a fair catch and let the ball bounce on the ground in the hope that the ball will bounce into the end zone for a touchback, the kick returner must catch the ball due to the fact that a kickoff is a free kick and the team that recovers a free kick is awarded possession of the ball.

Direct kick how does it happen?

A direct free kick is awarded when someone commits a penal foul: handling the ball, tripping or attempting to trip, striking or attempting to strike, kicking or attempting to kick, jumping at, charging, or pushing an opponent. The ball is placed at the spot of the foul, and a player on the offended team takes the kick. The ball is in play when it is kicked and moves. If a direct free kick is awarded within the kicking team's own goal area, the ball may be placed anywhere in the goal area for the kick (similar to positioning for a goal kick). If a direct free kick is awarded within the kicking team's own penalty area (including the goal area), the ball is not in play until it is kicked directly out of the area. If the direct free kick is awarded in the offending team's penalty area, a penalty kick is awarded instead.
