National Federation Discussion / Re: A method for shortening halftime.....

Obviously, we're going to do it, because it's the rule.  Just saying the rule itself is silly.  Especially when both teams are ready to go and we have to wait for 3 minutes to tick off the clock before starting. If you want to warm up, get out there 3 minutes prior to halftime ending on your own and warm up. If a player doesn't play the whole game until the 4th qtr, should he need 3 minutes to warm up prior to entering the game?  No.  Same difference.

If a coach/school decides to ignore the 3 minute warm-up REQUIREMENT, that's on THEM.  IF WE ALLOW them to get away with it, that shifts the RESPONSIBILITY for whatever BAD happens thereafter to US.  Why would we want to do that?

We might think it's silly but in RI we've been told under no circumstances do we deviate from the 3 minute warmup with the time displayed on the game clock.  We can, with the express agreement of both coaches tweak the half-time length, but the 3 minutes must stay.  We're being told the same here in MA for our 1st season under NFHS rules.

We are told the same thing in AZ

3 minute warm up rule is just silly.  Just make halftime longer.  If you want to warm up, come out sooner.  Clock hits zero, we're kicking off.

It's a safety precaution, as EVERYONE should loosen up after the intermission and before going at full tilt again.  Bands on the field, aside, when the intermission is over (15, 10, whatever has been agreed) and/or both teams are back on the field,  3 minutes (by rule NFHS Table:3-1) for a "Mandatory Warm-up Period".

Not sure who may be held liable if that "Mandatory" rule instruction is ignored and someone gets hurt, AND have absolutely no interest in finding out.

I've never seen a varsity team, much less two, come back to the field that soon.  We're fortunate not to have to send somebody regularly to one locker room to summon them out before the clock hits 0:00.
 
We've seen teams come out a minute or two early and do a quick stretch and head to the sideline ready to go as the clock hits 0. We put 3 minutes on the clock and run it. Sometimes they'll do more stretching. Most of the time they stand around waiting for the clock to expire.

Down here, we would be summarily executed if we tried that.  Apparently, the only reason for having a football game is to give folks something to watch while the bands are preparing to play.   >:D

AMEN!!
