Football and the Infield Fly Rule

My essay, Football and the Infield Fly Rule, is now up on UCLA L. Rev. Discourse. The piece discusses football situations and rules that rely on the same internal logic and cost-benefit analysis as the Infield Fly Rule. And the online format let us embed some audio and video. The editors were good enough to push the schedule so we could publish the day after the Super Bowl.

Had any interesting rule-based plays happened yesterday, I might have written a follow-up here. Alas, the best the game gave was back-to-back Super Bowl safeties--the last score of SB XLVII and the first score of SB XLVIII. Someone won an interesting prop bet (although apparently not Mark Cuban).
