if the shot is on the way down and a player swats the ball. also imagine the rim as a tube up to the ceiling, if the ball is in that cylinder on the rim and a player grabs the ball it is also goal tending.

Can you block a field goal at the goal post similar to what would be called goal tending in Basketball?

NCAA rules prohibit the blocking of field goals at the crossbar by a player in the end zone (which is not always the case). This is an unusual rule.Leaping at the crossbar was declared illegal by the NFL (in 1969?), after it was in vogue for about a year. In 2003, the NFL also enforced a "running forward and leaping" ban for the protection of the airborne attackers and the kickers alike. The only legal block is hitting the ball coming off the foot, or jumping straight up.
