Rule changes

I have heard from a pretty good source that there is one and only one rule change this year....team control on a throw-in.

Count me as someone that approves this.

It seems to take them a few years to get the rules they add correct.

Peace

Now if there were a couple of interpretations they would could get correct...

I would be interested to hear randall's thoughts on the rule change and how it will affect various throw-in case plays.

You'll need to get him a copy of the original Greek text first.

Why don't you change your username to "Joe Isuzu"?

This is a great change...we need to take out as many exceptions as possible so we all get the calls right.

We had a late-season, playoff-slot-determining game in this area this year that this rule change would have affected.

Team A is up one point, with :07 left, and a frontcourt endline throw-in. A-1 has the ball for the throw-in, as A-2 fouls B-2.

I can't remember if it was a regular or double bonus, but just the same, B-2 sinks both free throws, and Team B holds on for the win.

Maybe A2 shouldn't have fouled B2!

Yep, and w/o the free throws, maybe B4 would have hit a 3 point shot to win it after the throw-in. :shrug:

How does this eliminate exceptions? Now you need an exception to the backcourt rule, an exception to the 3-seconds rule. . .
