On a similar "What if?" theme, does the ball have to be returned to an official between plays? What I am thinking is, is there anything to stop a team who are camped on thier own goal line from snapping it back to someone who then runs out of bounds to give away a safety, but then immediately runs to the 20 yard line and takes the subsequent free-kick. The defending team are unlikely to have anyone back, and as it is a free-kick, the kicking team can retrieve the ball and retain possession (although they cannot advance the ball). Good way of earning easy yards, or am I missing something?
