This section is subdivided into kicks that either a) cross the line of scrimmage or, b) are prevented from doing so.
Place kicks, that in the opinion of the CFL’s Head Statistician, that are directed away the goal posts intentionally i.e. ostensibly for either field position or ‘onside kicks’ with an attempt to recover and advance the ball, are not counted as Field Goal attempts.
