    AIUI the problem is mathematical , as they average over a contract

    [Law] Re: Hand Off or Fend to the face/head/neck

    Was that a handoff with excessive force ?
    Or was it just a blow to the head ?

    Tbh I think it would be a lot clearer for everyone if hand off to the head was banned , with symmetry for ball...

    [Law] Re: Referees using player's names

    I think best practice is to use colours .. it's more reliable, you can't forget a colour, and colour words are much more succinct than team names.

    [Law] Re: Hand Off or Fend to the face/head/neck

    Tbh .. I would be unlikely to penalise any hand off for excessive force

  16. [Law] Re: Penalty offence by team that didn't knock on while playing advantage for the KO

    [Law] Re: Hand Off or Fend to the face/head/neck

    vovonne this is an excellent question, and in my opinion there is no easy answer.
