FanLax Rules
[Updated: October 15, 2018]

FanLax's Rules are a living document. As a consequence, when relevant, these policies will be updated. When updated, we will post the date of the update directly above. The list of policies below are far from exhaustive. So, when in doubt, simply follow the Rules of Men's Collegiate Lacrosse. Especially RULE 5—Personal and Expulsion Fouls, RULE 6—Technical Fouls, and RULE 7—Penalty Enforcement.

FanLax Penalty Box - The FanLax Sideline and Penalty Box is where post-ers sit while serving their one-to-four day foul. (A five day foul results in an expulsion from the FanLax Forum for a minimum of 5 days and a maximum of forever.) When serving their time in the Penalty Box, players can read the posts of other post-ers throughout the FanLax Forum but are restricted to only creating posts within the Sideline and Penalty Box Forum. Non-Penalized post-ers can post throughout the FanLax Forum including within the Sideline and Penalty Box Forum. The Sideline and Penalty Box Forum resides within the Anything But Lacrosse Category.

Unnecessary Roughness - Lacrosse is a physical sport. It involves stick checks, body checks, and, on occasion, hard body checks. And a good body check is an integral part of the game. With this said, some times what a post-er considers a metaphorical good body check is actually unnecessary roughness and warrants a one-to-three-day non-releasable foul.

Official's Communication Device - One of the rule changes for the 2017-18 season was Officials being permitted to use communication devices for in-game officiating. The referee is directly on the field with the players, coaches, and even two assistant referees. Even so, the referee sometimes needs the aid of assistants off-the-field who are watching the game on TVs from multiple angles in order to help him or her to make the right call. At FanLax, Admin is the referee and you, FanLax's Forum-ites are the assistants who whisper into the referees ear. When relevant, please take the time to whisper.

Unsportsmanlike Conduct
SECTION 4. No post-er shall:
a. Enter into a maligning argument with an official, Admin, as to any decision that has been made.
b. Use threatening, profane or obscene language, or gestures.
c. Bait, taunt, call undue attention to oneself, or commit any other act considered unsportsmanlike by the officials. Baiting and taunting is a one-to-three-day non-releasable foul in all cases.
Note 1: If a player continues to be abusive after the penalty is assessed, the official may add additional non-releasable fouls. Penalty time from these fouls counts toward the 5-day limit for fouling out. Fighting and Flagrant misconduct are expulsion fouls. An expelled individual does not go to the penalty box. The individual is barred from the FanLax Forum completely for a minimum of five days and a maximum of forever.

and you, FanLax's Forum-ites are the assistants who whisper into the referees ear.

That is one of Coach K's under-appreciated strengths. He never makes a fuss, and I have never seen the camera catch it, but he has a subtle way of whispering into the refs ear without calling attention to himself that nonetheless helps to ensure a cleaner game.

Of course, a cleaner game generally tends to help the Devils, but that might be a topic for a different thread.

Coach K gets 85% of the calls. Why would he complain?

Ever wonder why the camera angle at Duke does not face front of the bench....Coach K is the master of disguise. ;)
