As I'm sure you figured out by now Rich, just reading the rule book gives a coach just enough knowledge to be dangerous and really screw up.

Congratulations, you found one of the 439.274 errors in the OBR. As Paul Nauert was quoted in Alan Roper's article, "Learn the intent of the rule vs. the written rule...."

It took me two years to figure that out and to buy J/R and the BRD to help me figure out these damn OBR. The rule book is only the very beginning.

That's why you coaches need umpires...

A LOT of comments are made about coaches not reading the rule book. So what happens when one does then you tell him the rule doesn't mean what it says?
Well I am certainly wiser than this man. It is only too likely that neither of us has any knowledge to boast of; but he thinks that he knows something which he does not know, whereas I am quite conscious of my ignorance. At any rate it seems that I am wiser than he is to this small extent, that I do not think that I know what I do not know. ~Socrates
