Proposed Rule Change

Referee Handbook indicates a verbal warning for profanity applies to ALL players.  However, Rule 13.G. 1. does not specifically state this.  So, 13.G.1. should be clarified to state this or better yet, a verbal warning for profanity should ONLY apply to the individual or doubles team that utters the profanity.  Otherwise, the non-offending individual/doubles team is unfairly one utterance away from a technical warning. Each individual/doubles team should be afforded the potential for a verbal warning for profanity.

Proposed Rule Change (edited)

ITEMS 178, 93 AND 29 ARE EMCOMPASSED IN ITEM 93.
