Last week MISL Director of Officials Ryan Cigich directed a phone conference of league announcers to go over the rules to help broadcasters call the game with semi accuracy. Years ago, when traveling on the road our van personnel consisting of Coach Tozer, Tom Wynn, Bryan "Moose" Koch, Larry Sayles and I used to play a game trying to stump each other with rules questions. Here is how the game works. Over the course of the season, I will post 20 rules questions and provide the correct answer the following day. If you anwser incorrectly, you will be issued a blue card. Once you receive three blue cards you are ejected from the game! If you call the league office for clarification or I detect you have received a copy of the league rules you will be issued a yellow card. The top four players will make the playoffs (1 v 4) (2 v 3) and the eventual champion will receive a Tim Tyma autographed blue card. Question #1. On a goalkeeper distribution restart, the referee hands the ball to the gk and blows the whistle to signal the timekeeper. The timekeeper shall start the clock: A) When the referee hands the ball to the GK B) When the referee blows the whistle to signal the timekeeper. C) When the ball leaves the penalty area. D) When the ball is touched by another player after leaving the penalty area. GOOD LUCK!
