Hi All -
I was playing in a recreational game this week when the man I was guarding called injury and walked off the field. After several attempts to ask him what was wrong, he responded by saying he was winded, presumably form all the running we had just done. He then returned to the game on the very next point.
Is this allowed?
I later consulted the rules, and there indeed don’t seem to be any criteria for what does or doesn’t constitute an injury. However, my lasting impression on this issue is that what he did was extremely poor spirit.
Any other thoughts or opinions?
