[Official] Season 4 Rulings

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2015:
Shakuras Inquisition @ Char Meleons:
  • @0:31-0:26 remaining in the 2nd, CM have possession of the puck
    @0:31 remaining in the 2nd, Watermelon(SI) asked for "pp"
    @0:30 remaining in the 2nd, TownKrier (CM) paused the game
    @0:30 remaining in the 2nd, during pause TownKrier (CM) says "we going" and quickly unpases, violating the established tradition of a countdown before resuming game.
    @0:26 remaining in the 2nd, carlito (CM) scores
Solution:
The SI did not have possession of the puck when asking for a "pp," so it was at the CM discretion to pause for them (which they did). This means it was a legal pause and therefore should have followed the usual legal convention of pauses and have been restarted via a countdown. Since this was an illegal resumption of play, the goal will be revoked. A rule in Section V, bullet 9.1, is now in place that officially states the countdown convention that has been used since the dawn of time.
Rulebook Section V, Bullet 9.1 wrote: For legal pauses, a countdown of at least 5 seconds must be used from someone in the game, otherwise anyone may unpause to resume play.

The chat and Brazos trade will not be allowed to go through. It benefits both teams and isn't a direct effort to try and ruin the balance of the league, but the issue stems from the fact that the teams are literally playing in different leagues . I'm. Huby over and posting on phone so I can make a better post later
