Our match (us being 503) against 910 has to be the best i’ve been in all year. We are great friends with Foley and before the match we were both telling each other that we were going to tip their robot first ect… Well the end result was love…
The video isn’t loading for me (it’s my internet - I swear. My friend can load it find), but after seeing Chris’s picture, I was wondering how in the world I missed this. Then, I realized that I was a bit occupied with the robot sitting in my goal :rolleyes: Can I assume that both robots emerged from the tangle free of serious harm?
What happened was that our robot’s drive train was not working very well during that match. We had much trouble turning. So we resulting into going back and forth in the far zone. Eventually both our robot and 910’s began to tip at the same time and we just sat there making one big mountain. It was quite enjoyable. At that point I really dident care too much about the match. So when I heard about an alliance member stuck in the goal I thought it was really funny
You must have stepped out at the wrong times. On at least 2 occasions that I saw, soccer balls were launched diagonally into the first couple rows of the stands accidentally.
On another occasion, in a very close fought match, a ball was fired out of bounds, rebounded off a referee’s stomach, then went into the goal.
On yet another occasion during the playoffs, an autonomous ball got caught in the side-netting near the goal. The referee pushed it out of the netting and it dropped onto the field and hit a ball that was rolling into the goal, preventing it from scoring.
It was just SO competitive out there that you noticed all the little wierd things because single points counted for so much.
Only we got the yellow card for that match, and I don’t believe that it was for the ball either. It was strange because no one told us anything until we got back to our pit after the match. We had a ref come talk to us about our “aggressive driving”. I think 910 walked away from that match penalty free.
