New NCAA Rule Controversy : The Face-Off
New year, new outrage over a rule that was not needed to be made. Last year was the ‘motorcycle’ grip controversy, which eventually was overturned after a huge outburst by the FOGO community. This year, the committee has decided that it will be illegal for FOGO’s to play with the ball in the back of their stick after the draw. This decision has already been under heavy criticism by players all over, even Throne of String posted a photo in protest of the new rule. We will see if the decision gets overturned in the coming months, as it is still up for approval by a second committee, but the initial decision is not a popular one. Unlike the motorcycle grip, there is no safety hazard to allowing this style of play, and the NCAA should be reconsidering in the coming weeks.
