Protests, Appeals, Violations

Protests

Only team managers can file protests when a rule has been violated which may affect the outcome of the event.  The manager must immediately, upon occurance of a discrepancey, inform the official that he or she wishes to put the game under protest.  The manager must file a written letter of protest with the coordinator by noon of the next business day explaining the protest.  An official’s judgement or interpretation of a players action does not constitute grounds for protest.  Eligibilty protests may be filed by anyone throughout the season.

Appeals

Any team manager wishing to appeal a ruling made by the coordinator must submit a letter of appeal to the Director of Campus Recreation within 48 hours of the ruling.

Violations

A team with an ineligible player will forfeit any contest in which it used an ineligible player.  In addition, the ineligible player and all team on which he/she participated with will be dropped from further competition.  When eligiibility violations occur during playoffs, the regular season league standings are not affected.  Playoff games affected by these violations will not be rescheduled.  Falsification of names on the scorecard and/or participation under an assumed name makes an indivdidual and team ineligible.  Any player competing under an assumed name will be ineligible for intramural sport participation for one calendar year beginning at the time the discrepancey is first noticed.  Because the tam manager is resonsible for the team, the asame santion shall aply to him or her.
