President’s Report

President started the report with a web site review.  The web site has over 20, 000 hits so far and 2 hack attempts which though is a bad thing, it shows the volume of the site.  He also expressed again that the home teams will be turning in film to the site.  Floor was opened to the question of whether or not voting should be allowed to those not at the meetings so it can be put on the bylaws.  The proposal was that you have to be present to vote unless it’s a changeover vote and is close.  Vote – unanimous.  The wording of the new bylaw will be reviewed at next meeting.

Committee Reports

  • Rules Committee

Several rule changes are to be discussed:

Motion for the coach’s box on the sideline to be off 1 yard from the out of bounds line.

Clock time was viewed to make sure it was correct.  Discuss clock running so that the games weren’t so quick.  Make sure clock stoppage is consistent between conferences.

Review the overtime policy.  Last year they did 4 plays from the 10.  No switching of fields.  Just stay on one side.  After the first possession of the overtime does not result in a break in the tie, then the second possessions by each team will have to include a pass (2pt) if there is a touchdown.

All uniforms and helmets must match including the facemask.  Motioned by the Jags. 2nd by the Hitmen.  Voted – unanimous.

Pass Interference is it a 15 yard penalty or a spot foul.  Tomahawks motion it be a 10 yard penalty.  2nd Outlaws.  Voted – 6-5 passed.

Celebrating on a touchdown before you cross the end zone is brought back to the 10…  Wildcats motion to do away with the rule. 

Holding is a 10 yard penalty from the line of scrimmage if it’s behind.  If the hold occurs beyond the line of scrimmage is a 10 yard penalty from the spot.

Uniforms alterations may be done as long as it is safe and compliant with the rules.  Motioned by Wildcats.  2nd by Jags.  Voted – unanimously

  • Bylaws Committee

The meeting schedule in the beginning of the bylaws needs to be adjusted.  The bylaw for a suspension for fighting was changed from the season to 10 games.  So if a player is suspended in week 9, it carries to next season.
