Best Answer

A so-called "spot foul" is one that has its penalty yards (if any) applied from the location ("spot") where the foul occured, as opposed to the line of scrimmage or the end of the run.

What constitutes a spot foul in football?

A spot foul is a penalty behind the dead ball spot which results in the penalty being measured from the spot of the foul. When a quarterback grounds a pass while in the endzone the spot of the foul is in the endzone and results in a safety.

What is the all but one principle in football rules?

The "all but one" principle is not actually a rule, but rather a guideline for officials in determining where the ball should be spotted following an offensive foul. The principle states that all fouls are penalized from the basic spot EXPECT a foul by the offense that occurs behind the basic spot.First, to clarify what the "basic spot" is:If the foul is prior to the snap or during a loose ball, the basic spot is the previous spot.If the foul occurs during a run, the basic spot is the end of the run.On a dead ball foul or a touchback, the basic spot is the succeeding spot.The principle states that a team should be awarded only the distance that would have been gained without the assistance of a foul. Therefore, an offensive foul behind the basic spot is the ONLY type of foul that is penalized from the spot of the foul. All others are penalized from the basic spot (i.e., "all but one.")

How football penalty is applied?

There are four spots from which fouls are administered. The preceding spot which is where the ball was snapped from . The succeeding spot which is where the ball will next be snapped and the spot of the foul and theend of the run. All fouls committed by the offense behind the basic spot which is the end of the run of on running plays and the previous spot for loose ball plays like legal forward passes and kicks are measured from the spot of the foul. For instance if ah offensive lineman holds one yard beyond the line of scrimmage on a pass playand the play advances the ball beyond that spot the foul will be measured from the spot of the foul. Penalty measurement also has many special rules for special situations but these are too complicated for this discussion.
