Synopsis: commissioner Teroh made the ruling that HALOUNSC is not allowed to play as goalie; the ruling was stated at the start of games 1 and 2; 1 minute into game 2 neutral remake, Teroh reversed the ruling. Mar Sara is of the opinion that such sudden reversals of ruling are not appropriate and even if they were then they should be accompanied by corrective actions (e.g., commish pause game, issue remake, allow roster changes for 2nd team, etc.).
Game 1 starts. Teroh over cast: "HALOUNSC get out of net, Halo, you're skating... Halo in net is not within the spirit of probe league, not in the slightest." Teroh via in-game chat: "get out of net halo. you're skating"
Mar Sara accepts this as official ruling by the commissioner, per following published rule:
Game 2 starts. Mar Sara swaps 2 of its 4 players; this decision was impacted by the knowledge of the ruling that Halo is not allowed to goalie.“The Spirit of Probe League Rule” – This is an intentionally vague rule intended to be
enforced by League Management for the best interests of Probe League. It allows
application of unwritten rules and/or intentional non-enforcement of existing rules to
allow for maximum operation of Probe League, assuming that the ruling is somehow
benefiting Probe League as a whole.
themusic is in net; Alassau failed to load into the game and we execute a neutral RM.
Game 2 RM. Alassau is in net and says "gimme puck" (to hold and put another player in net).
After Alassau holds puck as goalie, Tijo becomes new goalie. Alassau goes behind net and then passes puck to Tijo to hold as goalie.
After Tijo holds puck as goalie, Halo becomes new goalie. This happens about 1 min into the game (first period).
Mar Sara views any continuation of this positioning as "win by forfeit" coming to Mar Sara.
Teroh speaks in the cast: "I dont really care. To be honest, I'm over it"
Teroh via in-game chat: "idc really if Daggius wants to double dip his main zhl goalie as his probe"
Note that the content of this post is not intended to address whether or not Teroh's initial ruling (Halo not allowed in net) was appropriate or consistent with the "Spirit of Probe League" or other published rules. The point is that ruling changed mid-series and mid-game.
