Being Disqualified from Tournements
With all this talk about the rules for the worlds and checking, it reminded me of a conversation that Meg and I had not long ago in a country far away........This came up at dinner after sundays tournement. We both felt there
was just cause for at least a couple of people in the tournement play
that should have been booted for playing in such a grotesque manner.
Being Disqualified from games/tournements for rough play - what if at tournements, there was a governing body of people(the crowd even). In cases of rough play, they had the ability to DQ a person or even team for how ever long they saw fit? Meaning that if you were called out on something, you could be removed for the game and your team would have to play a man down - a penalty box/power play type of situation.
Before posting, please consider that lots of the variables/grounds for DQ have already been discussed in the afore mentioned topics. I'm only talking about the disqualifaction of players/teams for flagrent/rough play.
