OOP block penalty due to No Pass No Penalty signal by OPR?
« on: June 07, 2016, 03:39:03 pm »
My jammer (Red 123) was hit by an opposing blocker (say blue 9) during a "No Pack" but I didn't see if the jammer went out of bounds (it was on the outside). There was no signal from the front OPR (who was about 10ft in front of the action) so I continued on. However as my jammer passed the OPR he signalled No Pass No Penalty signal.

It took me a moment to think "Out of bounds block" by the block and by that time my jammer had moved on.

1. Should I have penalised blue 9 an out of play block and awarded red 123 the point?
2. Is there a time when it's 'too late' to call a penalty on a skater?
3. Was it quite clear and I just over thought it?

At the end of the jam the OPR apologised for the late signal

Be fair. Be clear.

1. I would likely hold this penalty to the end of the jam. I would ask the OPR after the jam if the receiver went OOB. If they say yes, I would give the Out of Play Block (not out of bounds if I am reading correctly) after the Jam.
2. Once the next jam whistle starts the next jam.
3. No, sometimes we have doubt on a call and if we can't communicate all the things live to resolve our doubt, sometimes you just need that time in between jams to get the missing pieces.
