Not careless, not reckless... an accident. Accidental contact is not illegal contact as illegal contact is defined as deliberate, reckless or careless. Incorrect. An illegal contact is illegal contact. Being accidental is not an excuse. The grade adds relevance to the punishment - it does not change the fact that it is illegal. I'll give you another example to help you understand = when a ball carrier slips, is falling, but is hit in the head by the defender. It's not a deliberate act; it's an accident. It's still a penalty. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
