2. championship rules?

It's really time to know !!!

Sorry for the wait:
Rules (some changes can happen):


breakless forbidden in GVA. Cops can be dicks if they are into the mood. Drive slowly when you see them, it should be ok. Be realy aware about biking cops!


About time-out:
1. How many per team per game?
2. How many minutes max. for each time out?

Less is more, don't know yet.
Maybe 2 minutes max per time out...

Come back with answer.

a question if been asking myself for a long time...will it be possible to ask for a tactical time out, for example, to get together your team or disrupt a bit the rythm of the other team?

and regarding body to body, you say it's legal the use of forearms. In what way? Because if you use a forearm, the chicken wing which is not allowed, is so close to it! Maybe I don't understand exactly... is it like a defensive forearm, just for them not to break your "personal" space?

T-Bonin fault, is it always the player who crash into the other the one that commits the foul right? What about offensive obstructing, like going backwards on a behind move from the other?

use of forearms is in a defensive way to prevent a player who is pushing on you. You can put your forarms against his shoulder.

T-boning.,.. seriously, for me this rule mean nothing. All depend of who make the crash, who is moving and not, and who can avoid the crash or not. I can't realy answer you about that. If a player skid just in front of me, making me crash in him without ohter option, i think that the foul is not for me.

For offensive obstruction, i hate that every day a lil' bit more. But in european polo, that's legal. So for me, no rules about that. But I think that ref need to be more permissive with hard contact if the defensor can't get his way to the ball.
Yesterday i intentionnally t-boning the ofensive player who was screening me, it was a foul, but a lil' one I think. For me, people who play like this need to be ready to get push away.

goddamnit i want to come watch you europeans beast it out

return train from toulouse is expensive!

someone tele-port me plz, kthx <3
