(Sport: Canadian Football)


Occurs when a player crosses the scrimmage line when the ball is not being played. Also applies to a player who has possession when the last person to touch the ball was a team member who was positioned behind him - except when the rules of onside, hand-off and forward pass apply. A player becomes back onside when the ball comes into contact with an opposing player or when a team member carries the ball past him.
