Exclamation 2019 Game & Season Manual preview?

So I was digging on the FIRST website and found some odd preview thumbnails. The first looked like a thumbnail for the 2019 game, big surprise there. The shocking thing was the 2019 game piece preview! Of course, I now had the task of sharing it with you. A little more digging returned a PDF which I've attached.

What did I just find? Is this the great leaks my ancestors warned me about? Have I hallucinated this whole thing?

Re: 2019 Game & Season Manual preview?

This doesn't smell right...can a mod look at this asap and consider shutting this down? On second thought, I see the embedded FAKE now that I am on my larger screen computer vs my phone. Doh!

That would be such a cool game pieces to play with.

Re: 2019 Game & Season Manual preview?

Pretty good fake. Only the misuse of "effect" in the last sentence gave it away.

The GDC has historically been pretty good when it comes to correct English usage, especially during and since the dlavery era.

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.

Re: 2019 Game & Season Manual preview?

I've had a couple of these in my build space for a few years now... we use them occasionally for prototyping practice in the off-season. More challenging than normal round balls!

Actually, the tip off for me was too many prepositions. The GDC keeps them to a minimum.

Except knowing the difference between transitive and transitory. (See various pinning rules over the years - they did get it right in 2018!)
