  2. [Tackle] Re: Head clash, with force, "accidental" = no card? women's 6N

    If that had been a shoulder charge, I can understand that mitigation.
    I'm not sure I understand how attempting to wrap mitigates a head to head collision. This seems to me to be a cop out.
  3. [Tackle] Re: Head clash, with force, "accidental" = no card? women's 6N

    Straight red. Do not pass Go. Do not collect Match Bonus.

    My experience in the US is that is not the case. Consistency is actually driven better at the local level.

    Somewhatsarcastically, if you’re worrying THAT much about the timing of your YC returns week after week, perhaps you should be worrying less about the referee and more about your shitty discipline?

    I use a different app called Referee Coach, which is simple to use.
