1: Floor Decisions
« on: June 14, 2017, 04:24:14 PM »

Quote from: TDA 2015 Rules
1:  Floor Decisions
The best interest of the game and fairness are top priorities in decision-making. Unusual circumstances occasionally dictate that decisions in the interest of fairness take priority over technical rules. Floor decisions are final.

1:  Floor Decisions
All floor decisions are final.  Fairness and the best interests of the game are top priorities in making floor decisions.  A floor decision may override TDA rules when warranted.

While this may seem trivial, it has advantages:
  • The finality of decisions fact is stated first.
  • Corrects the singular best interest - the game has multiple best interests
  • Rules are overridden when warranted instead of being dictated by an occasional unusual circumstance.
  • It is more concise
