New rules Pivot cover question
« on: November 20, 2012, 04:16:32 pm »
This will sound a lot like rules lawyering but the way they wrote this rule is making me wonder if it was an oversite or intentional.

[rule]
3.2.2. The Pivot's helmet cover must have a single, solid stripe a minimum of 2 inches (5 cm) wide running from front to back.
[/rule]

Bolding is my doing.  So if the stripe is sideways, it's not on properly?  Or does

[rule]
3.2.2.1 Only the Pivot's helmet cover may have a stripe on it that runs the length of the helmet in any direction or any marks that might be confused with stripes[/rule]

mean the strip on the cover is good enough, regardless of direction.

The way I read them :


3.2.2 the strip must runs front to back on the cover, it doesnt say what direction the cover has to be worn in.

3.2.2. 1 Doesnt mandate that a pivots stripe can be any direction, it says that other helmets cannot have a stripe that runs in any direction.
