Officials Mechanic Rule Change - Am I on the line?

This year the NHFOA adopted a new mechanic for players. 

If a players asks:  Am I on the line or Am I in the backfield  we will respond yes or no.   If asked  Am I on the line and the player is not we will respond “no, my foot is the line” and have our arm back.  If a player comes up the line and looks at the official or looks at the official with a thumb up, there should be no response from the official.   If the player comes up to the line and asks Am I okay, there should be no response from the official.  We don’t know where he is supposed to be.

This should make things easier and a lot smother.  This change will be consistent at all levels up to and including High School.   Please make sure this is communicated to all coaches.    Player can only ask Am I on the line or Am I in the backfield!     Coaches should also be aware that when the player closest to the sideline is not on the line, the wing official will have his arm pointing back.

Please remind all organizations that there should be a line that is two yards off the sideline running parallel to it for the length of the field.  This can be 1 inch wide.   Also the yard line indicators that are placed every 10 yards should be 5 yards back from the sideline.  Most of the time when we arrive at a field they are right on the sideline.  We usually move them back 2 yards,  However, the rule book shows 5 yards.
