George Foreman on the wood?

2nd half of a boys varsity semi-final with about 2 minutes to go in a 67Ė67 game. A player respectfully complains to me about a no-call, but I couldnít hear a word he said because the grill in his mouth was way too loud. I know what the rules state regarding jewelry, but seeing how he made it 38 minutes w/out my partner or myself noticing (because the player doesnít whine) would you T him up in a spring league?

I donít see any concern for the safety of the other 9 players on the court by him wearing the grill. What if the grill was permanent, would you still T him up?



Also, correct me if Iím wrong, but isnít the inside edge of the boundary line inbounds? Meaning, the thrower can step all over the line & as long as he doesnít cross that inside edge... no violation. Correct?

If you deem this a violation, he simply can't play. No T.
The entire actual line is out of bounds. The thrower can tap dance on the line as long as he doesn't touch the floor inside the line before releasing the pass.

Correct. Think about gyms that have a two foot wide boundary instead of a two inch stripe. They're both the same.

What's a grill, in this context?

If you deem it jewelry, then the player must remove it or leave the game. As Snaqwell said, no T.

Actually he would not be wearing a grill. The jewelry would be on his grill. Not sure what the "wood" means.

For those old people that think people still used "bad" to mean "good" then this is for you. Basically in the south it is a common style for certain segments of society to wear a kind of jewelry on their teeth. Usually they are removable or at the very least easily removable. If you watched the TV show "Flavor of Love" you might understand what I am talking about. Or you might see this if you watch many southern rappers or entertainers in the hip-hop style of music.

I would say just like a tongue ring I would not allow a player to wear this with my knowledge. Now I would not go looking for this and asking every player to open their mouth, but if I noticed it I would likely remove them from the game. Now if multiple players had this and it went unnoticed for most of the game this would be a harder decision, but I would hope that I could just remove players from the game until they remove the items. One of the problems maybe there should be a ruling on this from someone because this is not quite the same thing as other forms of jewelry but I can see them as a possible hazard. I am not sure why anyone would want to play with them in their mouths, but I am sure someone sees this from that part of the country where this is more popular.

Peace

I suppose this is roughly what I would've guessed. But I've never seen it, certainly not on a player, so I couldn't really picture it. Maybe I'll google Flava Flav.

On second thought, no. I won't. I think Bob J called that a WOBW.

When I saw this I thought we were having a discussion on wood floors, landing strips, earth mommas...you know, the stuff that makes wood.

I don't think there's enough meds in the universe to wipe that image away.

However, I'd like to try that many, just to see.
