This ‘Stall Seven Incident’ shows a need for expanded observer powers.
Based on limited information, this just seems like at best two players not knowing the rules, and at worst one player maliciously exploiting the ignorance of another player. Expanding the power of observers might be the right thing to do, but this clip isn’t a good argument one way or another. What is indicated here is that we owe it to ourselves and our teammates to know the rules; nothing more, nothing less.
It does sound like it was a pick downfield, which should come in AT MOST at 6. There are some cases where it the stall could feasibly be 7, but not for picks; that doesn’t even address the issue that the stall could not actually be at 7. He catches it at 0:04-0:05, puts his hands up to indicate a call at 0:08; even with an extra second on each side (0:03 to 0:09) it’s still only 6 seconds. Seven is clearly the wrong count here :(
Awesome dude at the end talking down his own sideline who weren’t on the field. I want to be friends with people like that :D
