Question [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

Wow! Time flies! One week from now we will have new FRC Champions!

In order to help facilitate the Driver’s Meeting on Thursday at the Championship, the Head Refs are wondering: what is still on your minds? Teams asking questions now will help us build the answers into our Driver’s Meeting presentation.

Here is how this will work… PLEASE obey these requests

1) What you may post here are questions EXACTLY as you would ask them if the microphone was handed to you on Thursday – i.e. short and sweet. (The intent here is to keep the questions focused, so we can actually answer them.)

2) No questions will be answered here on Chief Delphi – all answers will be incorporated into the presentation at the Driver’s Meeting. (The intent here is to let us know what is on your minds ahead of time so as to help shorten the Q&A at the Driver’s Meeting -- that way we can think it out, talk it out, and have a consolidated answer for you Thursday.)

3) This is a special forum. You can post to it, but those posts will be moderated (meaning they will not be seen publicly until approved). (There will not be any censorship of legitimate questions – the intent is to filter out nonsense, attempted answers by others, or posts that don’t follow theses rules.)

4) We will take our last look at these questions at 9pm on Monday, at which time the forum will be closed. (We need sleep sometime this week!)

Go Teams!!! Travel Safely!!! We’ll see you on Thursday!

Yours truly,

The Head Ref Team

Re: [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

When are you allowed to step forward after auto? Can we go at zero, or do we have to wait for the buzzer?

Re: [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

Is the penalty for being in the other teams end zone in end game based on a time (every 5 seconds), an interval (at 15,10, 5 and 0 seconds left), or a combination (one penalty for going in at 13 and another for being in at 10 seconds)?

Re: [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

If my robot is in the opposing alliances home zone during the end game, but I have hit the E-stop button, will I still get penealized?

Re: [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

When exactly does a keeper/ringer on the rack count and not count? For example, what if a team from the red alliance is touching a red ringer at the end of the match that is hanging from a leg-- does that ringer count? What if a ringer is hanging on a spider leg, but hasn't been completely released by the scoring team, does that ringer count as scored?

Re: [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

If a robot is on top of a tube, which is on top of another robot, is the upper robot supported by a game piece (and thus is not lifted), or is the tube considered an extension of one of the robots (and thus the lift counts)?

Which division champions play each other in the Einstein semi-finals? (Or, alternatively, which division receives which label of Division A, B, C, and D as defined in Section 9.5.3?)

Re: [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

If a robot deploys a ramp outside of their homezone is it considered a wedge?

Re: [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

Please define "supported" when it comes to a robot in contact with or supported by a game piece when considering bonus points. I.E. If the wheels/treads are completely supported by an alliance partners ramp and an arm rest upon a game piece after power is cut, will bonus points be given?
What if the arm were to stay above twelve inches if the game piece were removed? Could one argue that the robot was supported by the ramp with incidental contact of the arm on a game piece? In other words, the game piece was not the only thing keeping the robot above twelve inches.

What is going to be considered ramming?

Will there be a penalty or flag given if you touch the other robots ramp during end game?

Re: [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

Would extension-on-extension contact when one team is attempting to use their extension to block another team from scoring be considered incidental, and therefor not penalized?

Re: [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

At the end of the match a Ramp Bot is pinching a tube between itself and the wall. This tube is not supporting the robot just pinched between the bot and the wall..... is this defined as supporting the robot and the ramp points negated for the robot on the ramp?

Is it considered a wedge even if it is not being used to wedge, is it just the wedge shape that will be illegal?

Also how is it determined that a robot has exceeded the 6' x 6' rule during play, supposing that the robot has changed its configuration after the violation?

Re: [moderated]: Ask the Champ Referees!

If a robot has a ring on its flag that does not correspond to its alliance (Example: Blue alliance throws a ringer on Red Alliance robot #1), can that robot proceed to score for the duration of the match?
