One other 'bonus'

Also, even though I'm young at heart my legs have been known to feel their age from time to time. A built-in rest doesn't hurt.

Having the teams fouls reset has its merits, too. The 5th foul in the 1st and 3rd quarters can arrive quickly but at least I know after ten minutes we go back to zero again.
One other 'bonus' is that we will never hear a coach or fan say, 'look at the fouls, it's 7-2!'

See what I did there

Some schools are complaining but progress has been made.
If the assignor deems it necessary to send 3 instead of 2, how does that affect game fees? And what happens if the assignor sends in 2 for the GV contest, but 3 for the BV contest that immediately follows?
If you ain't first, you're LAST!!!
