    Does that make sense
    so the ball is thrown in the direction of the oppo DBL?

    Cos if so then the initial speed of the ball is -10, and the post throw (5mph towards the oppo DBL) is thus -5mph... whiuch is an increase in speed

    ie -5 is larger than -10.

    Exactly , but the ball is still travelling toward own DBL

    The scenario is
    Red kick long over the heads of blue
    Blue 11 running back looking over his shoulder catches the ball on the run .. and passes flattish to Blue 15 who is running up to attack

    well - exceot it isn;t, relative to the passer. Its mobing towards the opppo DBL from the passer. its the reverse scenario we see in normal play whereby a bacjkwards pass continues to move relative to the ground towards the oppo DBL. But that ins;t a forward pass.

    So this is the revese - its relative to the ground moving towards jis opwn DBL - but its a forwqard pass from his hands/body.

    simples etc.

    its in effect exactly point I make about that pass over his head scenrio. do it in reverse and you get a forward pass even though the overall vector is negative.

    Exactly so
    Per OB logic that is a forward pass
    Even though the ball is travelling towards the passers own. DBL

    Well I reject that, legalistic, view.
    That's not a forward pass

    The takeaway is
    The forward pass Law is - genuinely - complicated

    All attempts to state it simply in one or two sentences, fail to cover every scenario. (including both NO's attempt, and OB's attempt )
