The declaration of a turnover likely cost us that game, and subsequently the set. Unfortunately by the time the commish was brought in, it had already been played out. True, it didn't matter in the long run because we lost to Nix in the next game, but its one of those situations where you'll always wonder what could have been. And everyone's good spirit on the matter was noted, but I think even better spirit would have been to bring the commish in right away to clarify BEFORE playing on.
Anyhoo, I definitely agree that timeout rules and such should be laid out very carefully for all to see BEFORE the tourney begins.
How about this for a first pass at time out rules:
A. Only the team with possession can call a timeout
B. Only one per game per team (so each team would have up to 5 timeouts each in a best of 5)
C. A player can only call timeout in the clear area, so as not to impact the defensive and offensive momentum in the goal area. That is such a critical 5 seconds when a thrower is looking to throw to the goal, it would not seem fair that in addition to the multitude of throwing options available, the thrower could also call a timeout, reset all players, and then throw a score.
