Can you kick a field goal in the Canadian football league on second down and re-kick on 3rd down?

When a team kicks the ball, it gives up possession of the ball. I'm not sure if you meant whether a team that unsuccessfully attempts a field goal on second down is entitled to try for another field goal on third down, or if you meant whether a team that successfully kicks a field goal on second down gets another attempt to kick a field goal on third down, but in either instance the answer is 'no.' You only get one kick at the ball.

What is a goalie kick?

There is no such thing as a "goalie kick", but you are most likely referring to a goal kick.When: If the ball exits the field across the goal line, was last touched by an attacker, and a goal is not awarded, then the restart is a goal kick.How: The defense takes possession of the ball and places it anywhere in their own goal area. They then get to kick the ball back into play. The ball must leave the penalty area before it is in play. No player may touch it until it has left the penalty area.

Can you lose possession of the ball on a penalty in football?

Yes you could. If the goalkeeper catches it, then the other team has possession. If it was saved or hit the woodwork and came back into the field of play, then a member of the other team could get the ball first. If a goal is scored then the other team restarts the game with the ball in their possession. If the ball goes wide, then there will be a kick out by the goal keeper.

If a team tries for a field goal on 2nd down and misses do they still get the third and fourth downs?

If a field goal is attempted on any down other than fourth, the rules state that once the ball crosses the line of scrimmage the kicking team no longer has possession. This means that if a field goal is attempted on second down and the kick is blocked and the kicking team recovers behind the line of scrimmage, they retain possession. If the ball crosses the line of scrimmage, regardless of whether the kicking team recovers or not, possession goes to the defensive team.

Can the field goal kicking team catch the field goal attempt and run?

yes... they can its happened to me beforeNo. A scrimmage kick can only be recovered by the receiving team. It's exactly the same as a punt: If the kicking team is first to touch the ball, that constitutes an illegal touch. The only way the kicking team could maintain possession after kicking a field goal is if:The kick was no good, and the receiving team fields the ball and then loses possession.The kick was no good, and the receiving team touches the ball first within the field of play and beyond the line of scrimmage.The kick is taken on first, second, or third down, is blocked, doesn't cross the line of scrimmage, and the kicking team recovers.If a team caught its own field goal kick, the ball would be dead where the catch was made, and the opposing team would put it into play from that spot.

Is it true that in the NFL a placekick or dropkick doesn't have to be considered a FG attempt?

By rule, if you kick the ball during a scrimmage down, it's called a "scrimmage kick." If a scrimmage kick off the ground goes through the uprights, it's a field goal. Technically, there is no rule that defines a field goal "attempt." You don't necessarily have to "attempt" a field goal when placekicking on a scrimmage down, but if your kick doesn't go through the uprights, the same rules apply as would for a missed field goal.
