"Referee" rule confusion???
 
I noticed the following in this month's "Referee" and it got me thinking (I know, a bad thing). It raised a few questions/comments in my head due to the rules cited. I edited/shortened the play to get to the point faster.

Play: Team A's school colors are red and white. Team A is the home team and is wearing its white jerseys. Is team A allowed to wear its red/road pants with its white jerseys? Ruling (as listed in "Referee"): NFHS, yes (3-4-1 and 3-4-5); NCAA, no (1-22-3, 10-2-3c).

The NFHS rule citation isn't really needed, IMO. The only reference in the NFHS rule book to the color requirements of anyone's pants during a game is ours (black, 2-1-1).

The first NCAA rule citation isn't correct. It should be 1-22-4 ("The home team shall wear light game jerseys and game pants...The majority of the color of the game pants shall be the color of the neutral zone [of the jersey])." It doesn't seem the second rule calling for an administrative technical foul ("A team/team member shall not wear an illegal jersey") should apply since the jerseys aren't illegal. However there's nothing in the NCAA books regarding the penalty/remedy for violating 1-22-4. Thoughts?

Say What??
 
I'm thinking you have too much time on your hands. Also, you should know better than to try and make sense of rules citations or interps in the bespoke publication.:D:D

Yeah, I do need new hobbies :D

But it's actually a concern. I doubt I'll see this on the NCAAW level but my GV games in NY are under NCAA rules. There's always the chance a player - or a team, for that fact - could come out with, say, white tops with blue writing but have on blue shorts.

Unless the visitors are in blue I'd leave it alone.

That's kicking the can down the road. I would let that team play that night, but I would be sure to discuss the issue with the coach, or athletic director, and report the issue to my assigner.

What can are you kicking? Isn't it legal?

Dare I ask...
 
...but you know someone will, if a team wears white tops and red shorts, what are allowable colors for wrist/head bands, arm and/or leg sleeves and braces?:rolleyes:

Not under the NCAA code it isn't and that's the code used for girls' basketball in NY State. The state interpreter told me she'd be inclined to let it go but suggested I mention the scenario to my local board, which I will.
