FWR Protocol for Red Cards
Because of risk management concerns, a new protocol on red cards will be tested at the NCS regional tournaments in Region I and Region IV. The change is as follows:
Red carded players will be allowed to remain on the team bench for the remainder of the game from which they are ejected. They will no longer be removed to the spectator side of the field. Team officials will be responsible for monitoring the player's behavior for the remainder of the game. Ejected players who continue to be disruptive will be removed by a state representative and will be subject for suspension for the remainder of the tournament.
Red carded coaches will continue to be sent completely away from the game site.
After much discussion, the Region IV Cup Committee has decided to cancel plans to adjust the positions of the FWRL Wildcards in the brackets for FWR in Boise. This decision to maintain the status quo is based on two factors. One, the placement of the wildcards in their current positions was properly done in accordance with the existing wildcard placement policy. Two, the current brackets have been posted on the websites and to change them would cause undue confusion.
The placement policy for FWRL wildcards has been effect for many years and has worked without issue in the past. This is the first year that so many conflicts have occurred between teams from the same state. The Cup Committee will be working between now and the fall workshop to draft a new policy that will minimize or eliminate this problem in the future.
Please accept my apologies for the hassle this issue has caused,
