28. Some rules are difficult to understand for spectators, television, etc. Is the Hockey Rules Board thinking about this?
One of the aims of the Hockey Rules Board is undoubtedly to make the game easier to understand for spectators and television – and also for players, coaches and umpires. Sometimes this is consistent with other aims such as retaining the special characteristics of our game or making the game even safer - but sometimes these aims can clash a little. The Hockey Rules Board is therefore constantly seeking to achieve a balance between its various aims including making the game easier to understand.
