14B.7.3. Penalty Goal ClarificationThis discussion has an associated proposal. View Proposal Details here.
Comments about this discussion:
This is an out take from the discussion "14B.7.2 6.5 M Clarification".
We worked out that there is a need to amend the wording from the paragraph "penalty goal" as well.
Here I repeat the last (new) version:
"14B.7.3. Penalty Goal
The body is by deleting the words "of the ball" an illegal play can include an illegal movement of the goal with mention this matter explicitly.
I agree, we should change this wording
I agree. After deleting the three words "of the ball", the referee can
also award a Penalty Goal for moving the goal.
We probably all agree that there are cases where moving the goal should
result in a 6.5 m or even a penalty goal. The current rules, however,
allow only a free shot:
"14B.8.8 Moving The Goal: If a player moves the goal, the game is
interrupted and the opposing team gets a free shot."
To give the referee all options from 14B.7 (advantage, free shot, 6.5 m,
penalty goal), I would like to change 14B.8.8 to something simple like
"14B.8.8 Moving The Goal: The players are not allowed to move the goal."
This could probably be added to the current proposal here.
So as not to open another new discussion and proposal I will try to add Rolf's suggestion in this proposal.
Thanks, Herbert. This looks good now.
