There are “gray” areas in the rules of all sports. In football, basketball, and soccer, for example, when does an innocent hand check, to see where the opponent is, become holding? The Code says that we “will compete within the spirit and the letter of the rules…” The “spirit” of the rule is the intent of the rule, and is a higher standard than just the rule. What are some of the rules in your sport which enter the gray area? What does the spirit of the rule require? Are you willing to live by a higher standard than your opponents, even if it costs you a game?
