One penalty tracker
« on: September 07, 2011, 06:03:40 am »
Alot of leagues seem to adopt (I hear) using one penalty tracker only. And within the stats book there is a sheet for this purpose. Does anyone use this? I printed it off and the squares seem to be awfully small for someone's poor eyes to focus on all night, or is it just me? :-(

Personally... I really prefer one penalty tracker (with a roaming wrangler).
The recent Officiating Manual even specifies one tracker.

HOWEVER, more recently, new standard practices were released and now 2 penalty trackers is the standard

get the standard practices from...

I think the use of one (good one) penalty tracker with a wrangler is very workable and reduces the amount of ppl hanging around in the middle.  What sheets does your tracker use?  Did your league expand on the one in the stats workbook? I am wondering if I am just used to looking at the other sheets, but the size of the squares seems small and when you flat out and looking up and down they could get hard to use.

we use the one in the stats book - as is at A4 size

it's easy to use with a little practice

It depends on the preference of the tracker. I've seen some people use the one small sheet and do fine. Others print on larger paper and use a larger clipboard. I've also seen a tracker use two separate sheets on back to back clipboards and flip back and forth between them. I'd go with whatever works for you best.

I've done both and prefer single penalty tracker. Just from an attention standpoint it means I'm not ignoring 50% of the penalties called in.

Just make sure you have a nice fine point pen because those boxes are tiny.

I love single penalty tracker.  I want to marry single penalty tracker.  But the new Standard Practices dictate using two PTs.  This is only required at WFTDA-organized tournaments, but many leagues follow all the Standard Procedures just to stay consistent with what happens at the highest level of play.  

While my league is one of the strongest and most vocal proponents of single penalty tracker, we've switched to double, so that our NSOs know what they're doing if they get invited to a tournament (and so the refs are used to that system as well).
