NCAA Discussion / 2023/2024 Rule Tests
« Last post by GuilhermeCohen on Today at 06:25:58 AM »
Hey, guys! How have you been?

I have a google drive with a lot of rule tests and I share with my fellow officials in Brazil. Our season starts this weekend and we are looking for new files.

If you have some rule tests from 2023 or something new on 2024, please tell me!

All the best

Fibber. I'm pretty sure I saw you hangin' out at the Colosseum, waiting to officiate the gladiator matches. I believe I heard you telling some poor, doomed gladiator that you were on the rules committee.
I'm unsure that the gladiators had any rules other the emperor's signal upon completion of  :thumbup (the vanquished can stick around" or  pi1eOn
(off with his head or whatever) aBdUcT. Oh'but those were the daze  tR:oLl .

Calhoun NAILED IT  aWaRd.

The back story that I heard/read was:

Roman Emperor Constantine was the first emperor to embrace Christianity. However, he was bothered by many Christians taking different days off from work to pilgramage to Calvary. The AFL/CIO had not yet formed, so Constantine was in charge and asked the Christian leaders  to meet and decide on a fixed day. The leaders met ,argued, but couldn't agree (sorta' like our congress). So Consty stepped in and issued the following decree (sorta' like an excitive order):

(1) Easter should be on a Sunday as that was the Christian day of worship.

(2) The Resurrection is symbolic of re-birth. Spring is also symbolic of re-birth. Easter should be after the turn of Spring.

(3) The mode of travel of most Romans on their Pilgramage was walking day and night. There was very few street lights back in Rome then. Walking under a full moon would be easier.

There you have it and no Elvis, I wasn't in town yet back in 300 AD  ;) . Like our rules book there has to be an exception:

Full moons differ, depending on where on our planet you call home. In case the moon is full in part of the planet but not the other when Spring comes, the tie breaker is if full over Greewich meridian after Spring equinox.

They need to bake the cost into MFHS membership dues and just make it freely available as PDF.  Problem solved, no special app or DRM needed.

Some wise man noted "Life's a bitch, then you die" & "patience" is still a virtue.  Christmas is still only once a year, but generates a lot of useful anticipation and focus waiting for the big day.
