See now... that's a bullshit rule that ball being live... If a guy falls down and subsequently slams the ball into the turf out of frustration that's as down as you can get. Who cares whether he's been touched... He's downed himself. He thinks he's down. If the play is really still live the fellow can be tackled unawares - that's dangerous and non-sporty. We all love seeing a good tackle but cheap shots should be minimized.
The spirit of the law should rule here. Hell.... The spirit of the law should always rule... Why do you think I run red lights at 5 o'clock in the morning. There's no one in sight coming the other way. I'm just following the spirit of the law officer.
