We asked him where the ball was before we'd moved the chains. He did not know, so we did not enforce this "out-of-rulebook" penalty. If admin is going to disrupt the game, he damn well better be able to tell us EXACTLY what we are required to "fix" it, or we simply can't.
I realize that this is pee-wees and they have their own quirks, but what if this came up in a strictly Fed. situation?
I don't have USC in any situation, but even if it was USC, the penalty would be administered from the succeding spot.
If an ejected player returns, we have illegal participation. 9-6-4e
However, a suspended player (school, league, state, etc.) doesn't fall under our jurisdiction. I know that I've read a ruling on that somewhre. It's probably a state ruling, but I'm not sure. Can anybody help out?
