I think the appeal rules are pretty good for FED.

So do I. Can you imagine the chaos if Fed now switched to the OBR appeals process?

Never said we were drawing attention to anything...just commenting on what I thought was an interesting that I haven't tracked.
It's like Deja Vu all over again

Do I have that right?
That's a bit of a generalization, but then again, SC does rank toward the bottom of the list on education rankings, don't we?!?
Never argue with idiots...they drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

I don't see this as retreat to second. He legally acquired third base, but was a few feet off his base. The fact that he overran the base simply makes him liable to be tagged out while off base. However he IS "on" third, and therefore occupies it.

I once saw an MLB game where a slightly different situation occured: Batter hits ground ball and beats throw to first base. After running several feet past first base, he made a slight left turn before walking back to first base. The umpire called him out. (He may have been tagged while returning). This call drew an argument from the offensive team. The umpire ruled that he "turned" toward second.
