Why do we need a strecher?

Hey from Team 121,
A couple of people have voiced opinions and
one from our engineers said why doesn't all the
robots have special hooks in the front of the robot
so it can be towed without a stretcher coupon. With
one robot towing, all of us as a 4 team alliance can
get the most amount of points for us. And since
this is all competitive, no one would dare to use
the hooks in a wrongful manner. This hook and
grabber would have to be universal, so everyone
will work. Right now the most simplest option is
that every robot has a pole in the front and a hook
in the back.
One strategy that my team thought of is: for a robot
who can't get itself to the end-zone, is to
immediately shut down by pressing the red button,
and towing that robot across the bridge into the
end-zone by another functional robot. This strategy
is one example for all of gaining points, for that just
in case situation.
