and now possibly because they realise its a 1/3 chance their jump will even be in with a shout of being any use wrt squint throws (CF Simon's post above) so they are exposing themselves doubly by even bothering.But like anything you'll also need to consider why a team was not contesting (did they stop contesting because the first 3 egregious crooked throws were not pulled up).
As I said its more hypothetical than anything - but it struck me a s a trial that MAY end up in full laws that it really needs far more guidance/clarity over what constitutes a "contest", hence i was intrigued what you guys thought.
Personally I think its a non starter. Its yet one more thing for a ref to think about and consider - and the edge/fringe cases just create a headache for you. Is that jump at ~#2.75 a contest for the ball thrown to ~#4.25 or not ?
