|USAP Board Vote Reason
|USAP Rules Committee Vote Reason
|Failed. 1) We'd be asking every single match to change the end of match procedure ( requiring all teams to sign the scoresheet) for a relatively rare occurrence. 2) This drastically reduces the amount of time that they identify an out of position error. 3) We don't want a referee error to substantially affect the outcome of the match 4) If passed, the change about referees correcting players out of position would address this.
