    I was just looking at pics of the Anaheim Bolts home opener......did they play this game without any lines on the field? How does that work (and who allows this to happen)???????

    Yes, the entire game was played without lines. No box on either side, nothing!

    You have GOT to be kidding me. That is weak.....really weak. Let's hear anyone from the PASL camp try to justify this crap. Why didn't the keeper just run it all the way down the pitch and throw it in AKA team handball.

    Actually, the Anaheim field did have lines. I admit that I did have to stare at the photos a little bit to see them, but there are narrow red dashed lines on the turf. Now, don't get me wrong - I do agree that this is unacceptable, but they were probably quite visible to the players and refs on the field.

    As a goalkeeper though, those lines would drive me nuts.

    Wow! The lack of glass should be illegal too!

    FROM PASL rule book
    1.2 MARKING: The field of play shall be marked with distinctive white lines (except yellow lines explained below), not less than four inches (4”) nor more than five inches (5”) in width. A perimeter wall, which shall be part of the playing surface, shall enclose the touchlines and goal lines. A halfway line shall be marked out across the field of play. The center of the field of play shall be indicated by a nine-inch (9”) circular red mark and a circle with a fifteen-foot (15’) radius shall be marked from the center of this mark. A yellow line marking shall be placed across the field fifty feet (50’) from each goal line. Both yellow line markings shall extend vertically to the top of the perimeter wall. A nine-inch (9”) circular red mark (Shootout Mark) shall be at the center of each yellow line. (While it is preferable that all nine-inch (9”) circular marks be red, it is permissible for all circular marks to be white.)

    1.13 PLEXIGLAS: League operations shall delineate Plexiglas requirements. Referees shall stop play immediately should the Plexiglas be shattered while the ball is in play. Play shall be restarted in accordance with Rule 8.5.

    What does the PASL "rule" book say about goal size??? I bet out of the 19 teams there are at least 6 different dimensions for goals. Rulebook schmoolbook

    I attended my first PASL game tonight. which was the Chicago Mustangs first ever home game. I heard that the arena had just put in larger goals to meet the league's requirements.

    Nice.........but I bet there are at least 6 different ones league wide. Kudos to the Mustangs though. PLUS I bet they had glass in the corners AND lines on the field.

    I asked them and they said they put in the ones they were told to have lol
    no glass on ends - there is wall. Although one corner is close to glass as it is in the bar or vip area.
    they have 4 foot boards on fan side with netting to ceiling on that
    and indeed had strong colored lines on the field
    One thing it seemed like the refs were letting things get a bit rough but then I got home and watched the end of soul lancers game and those refs did the same job so I guess I can't say the PASL refs were worse then the MISL refs.
    Al in all the Mustangs want to make a statement in the standings and on the game experience and attract some fans.

    I think MISL ref Ron Cory was one of the officials at the Mustangs game.

    True........It's still early. Harrisburg will move to Sports City for a game or 2, Arizona might have 3 different venues by the time it is all said and done, and Anaheim........well I guess it doesn't matter where they play. They can be in a parking lot for all the PASL cares, as long as they put some bodies out there and throw down a rug.

    A few teams in both leagues have no glass in the midfield. Kansas City Comets started that at Kemper in 2003 (they called it "Battle Zone Seating", and I remember at least one fan went to the hospital when a player was knocked over the wall on top of her). When I went to a Sidekicks game there in 2004, I was definitely not a fan of the higher number of out-of-bounds plays. Thankfully, the field at the Allen Event Center has midfield glass. :D

    No you don't understand what I'm saying. Nothing to do with the side boards.
    Here is a photo. See how much glass is missing!

    I don't see what the fuss is about. At least they aren't likely to hit any spectators with all those empty seats.:laugh:

    Was it '03? I thought it was '04. I remember the consternation. People were just sure it was going to be a disaster. Now it's fairly common. Those sections of glass that aren't in the corners or around the penalty boxes have been taken out in a lot (if not most) MISL arenas, haven't they?

    I, for one, was concerned. This was around the same time that all pro hockey leagues were spending literally millions on nets on the off chance that one fan could get hurt every 20 years.
