Triple Goalies?
How dull.

Let's trial a crease to prevent this behavior in the spring tourney.

Rumour is, it will included in next years NAH rules and is happening in Europe a bit. It was trialed at the London Open with really positive responses.

If we want to be on the same page as the rest of the world then I think we should try it.

I need more information about this proposal before agreeing to it.
Has the ahbpa discussed it?
I'd rather play to a compete rule set, I don't think proposing rule changes one by one a week before the tournament is the best way to do it.

Agreed with Damon. I this was proposed last month if be all for it. I just don't want to implement it a week before the tourney.

That being said... I'd be open to discuss this for Christmas/Festivus Tournament

How would a crease be implemented? What shape would it be? What would the rules surrounding it be? I'm having difficulty imagining it.

Here's the ruling from the London Open.

The Crease 1.1 Measurements - There will be a crease measuring 2 feet out from each goal post, and in a semi-circle 8 feet from the center of the goal and goal line. 1.2 Player Movement Restrictions - Only one defensive player (“the goalie”) is allowed to enter or become stationary within the crease at any time, as determined by any part of their bike being visibly inside the crease. All other offensive and defensive players are not allowed to enter the crease. A ball turnover will be assessed for a player who illegally enters the crease. 1.2.1. Ball Location - At the point the ball enters the crease, players can also enter the crease to make a fair play on the ball. When the ball the exits the crease, all players except the goalie are required to remove themselves within a reasonable amount of time. Any player who remains within the crease and disrupts subsequent offensive plays, or impedes any other players movement in or around the crease, will be assessed a minor penalty. 1.3.Allowed Contact - There is to be no body, mallet, or bike contact initiated by any player who enters the crease, unless it is incidental due to a direct play on the ball. 1.4 Penalty Escalation - Any illegal contact that occurs within the crease will automatically be assessed a minor penalty. Play will restart according to 4.2.3 with a 3v2 man advantage.
