Scenario: PK awarded as time runs out. Red #1 shoots the ball, GK saves it high up into the air, with back spin it is going back toward the goal line. Blue #1 is sprinting in from the side where he legally entered the PA after the PK was kicked, and clears the ball off the line. Ruling? LOTG simply says that the duration of the half is extended until the PK is completed. The I&G says nothing relevant, noting only that the PK ends when the referee decides it is complete. The ATR expands: Read literally, the red section would mean the defender is not permitted to clear the ball -- but nothing in the LOTG or I&G suggest that result. The language of the LOTG and I&G would indicate that an attacker could not play the ball, as that would clearly end the penalty kick and thereby the half. So, does the red really mean what it says? Or is it simply trying to tell us that the kicker and his teammates can't take a rebound shot? If it really means that the defender can't clear a ball, where does that come from, and what is the consequence -- players are still players and required to be on the field, and he didn't violate any precept of Law 14, so what would it be? I come down to the ATR not really meaning what it literally says, and that in any such (hopelessly unlikely) event, I woudl just end the half. Curious if anyone has any alternate analyses that should make me rethink this.
