Gee.  They rejected the idea of having character development?  I'm shocked.

And who needs a game administrator?

Seldom have one that shows their face anyway, might as well make it official!

Terms and definitions are so important. I know they likely mean low blocks when they say chop blocks, but it would be nice if they used the correct terminology.

10-second subtractions are easy.

Two tiers of Targeting - not so much.  Maybe not that difficult to officiate, but trying to get the spectators to understand why Johnny didnít get DQd, but Billy did, will be next to impossible.  Even with a field mic, without giving a mini-rules clinic, they arenít going to understand.  Billyís mom is gonna be meeting us at the gate when we come off the field.  Heck, I doubt that many coaches will understand the UILís rule.  Even if they do, if we donít DQ opponent Johnny, they will freak out when we DQ their Billy (and vice versa).

As with most rules, maybe it wonít be a big problem in real life.  But, on paper, it sure seems like a recipe for conflict.

Regarding the targeting "changes", I'll be treating everyone the same and DQing everyoneflagged for targeting in an effort to eliminate any presumption of bias.
