Lead Jammer in NO-PACK
« on: April 17, 2011, 10:34:53 pm »
I'm sure I've talked about this with other refs and have seen talk about it here, but for the life of me I can't find anything here to back me up.

A fellow official has asked me what happens when No-pack is called and the first Jammer has made it past every blocker legally. I said that she's LJ, but
Quote from: My fellow Official
In my reading of the rules on becoming lead jammer it talks about passing blockers that are in-play (defined in the glossary at the end of the rules). In the scenario no blocker is in-play and no blocker has ever been in-play in the jam in the scenario.
I've said that from what I've read and heard on interpretations of those rules, it is the Jammer who has to be in-play and passing every blocker who is in bounds, not the blockers having to be in-play themselves.

You are correct that the wording is refering to the Jammer having to be in bounds and legally passing the blockers and not that the blocker has to be in bounds.

As for a No Pack situation refer to rule - During a no pack situation (per Section 4.1.2), the Jammer must pass all Blockers to become Lead Jammer
