- The title is updated rules, because I saw that Bill Collins modified the initial post on northeastboard, but I don’t know what was changed. It is possible to be something related with this comment from Devon Larratt: ” i don’t like to see small elbow fouls called.. its hard on the reff, and people always talk about it, but i think its fine. I was actually reffering to the push call. elbow getting pushed off or not and who’s foul it is, that could just be your pad, your responsibility, but again. a small thing. Hope this match makes TV “; and Bill Collins’ answer: ” Ahh..the way Jerry pulls it can appear that he is pushing the opponent off the pad….thats why i said if they are pushing into the body…. “
” Looking at the main card for the UAL III (Jerry and Micheal) how do you see it going?
The dramatics of this match:
Jerry> is the mean shoulder roller, pushing his opponent across the table which can appear to drive the elbow off the pocket..
Micheal> is very versatile and can lay on his tricep and hang on the outside for days, tiring down his opponent and inch his way to the win.
Both pullers have conversational styles, so before this match, it’s noted THESE are not WAF rules…
Like any sport there is a inherent risk of injury and they must protect themselves at all time…both of these guys are seasoned pullers and must understand, whats before them..
You must keep the tip of your elbow touching or in the circumference of the elbow pad at all times, if your elbow is not touching the pad your forearm or tricep must have contact during the match, your shoulder cannot drop below the table.
An elbow hop will not be called unless there is a moderate position gain..
There is no hurt arm position that will the allow the match to be stopped, they must protect themselves at all times..
Deliberately pushing your opponent off the pad is only called if it is direct pressure into the body of your opponent or it obvious what transpired.
The match will have running fouls, no matches will be stopped unless two fouls are called or you have a winner.
A referee grip is to get a fair grip, little movement will not be called unless it’s to get an advantage of the grip, then a warning followed with a foul..
The rules are looser then normal event rules..and as of right now are the SM rules, not limited too….Comments? ”
