I don’t think anyone has criticized the rules of the game more than I have.
I would like to see them simplified so the game could overcome the officials. I hate powerjams.
Well, there was one significant rule change that came out of the new WFTDA rule book: penalties will be just 30 seconds which should help to limit them.
But I also saw something very significant in the B.A.D. Girls doubleheader Saturday night in Richmond (CA): if you have 4 teams of skilled players who are evenly matched, you can get some great games that keep a packed house (well over 2000) on their feet with fast jamming, often 1 and 1 jams, great pack action and really no slow downs.
And the players knew the rules and the officials let them play most of the time.
And the games were under the WFTDA ruleset.
OK, I told you what needs to be done….go do it.
