IX. Protests of Rule Interpretations
Only rule interpretations may be protested. Judgment calls made by officials cannot be protested.
- Protest must be made to the head official on a game immediately following the play in question. Once another play has occurred the protest becomes invalid.
- The protesting captain must explain the reason for their protest. In turn the head official will explain the basis of their decision.
- If the protesting captain wishes to appeal the decision of the head official, they must request that an Intramural Supervisor review the decision before play resumes. Play will cease while the captains, officials, and supervisor confer on the details of the incident. The Intramural Supervisor will then rule on the disagreement based on the information at hand.
- If either team is not satisfied with the decision made by the officials and Intramural Supervisor, they must state that they wish to make a formal protest. The Supervisor should immediately note the details of the incident and the reasons for which they based their decision. The protesting captains should also write their account of what happened on the protest form. Play will immediately resume following the completion of the paperwork.
- To complete the protest, the protesting captain must submit a $5 deposit to the Recreational Sports Office by noon the next day and set up an appointment to meet with the Intramural Sports Director.
- The decision will then be reviewed by the Intramural Sports Director. If the decision is reversed the deposit will be returned and the game will be rescheduled and played from the point that the game was protested.
- If the decision is denied, the final outcome of the game will stand.
