In todays copy of the Adelaide Advertiser Article written by Warren Partland he makes mention that Josh Ross will be the first athlete to come from further back than the scratch mark and will be given a minus 1m mark.
According to the Rules of the Competition

9.4 Scratch mark
No athlete will be allocated a handicap behind the scratch mark.

He must start on nothing less than the scratch mark.
Do the SAAL take the chance that he may be slightly off the form he is capable of and risk him winning another Bay Sheff by not moving everyone else out.
I say give him a chance !!!!!!!
The same Article in todays paper mentions the SAAL will not be increasing the limit.
Ross has to by the Rules of Competition be allocated nothing less than SCR.
Just imagine if he was allocated minus 1m and false started and went back to minus 2 they would almost have to hold up traffic on that back road to start the race.cheers cheers cheers

22.2 Changes to Rules of Competition
All changes to these Rules of Competition shall only be changed by a
resolution of the Management Committee.

Very Grey area as it doesnt say when a resolution needs to be.

I presume a resolution of the Management Committee has taken place or else its a blatant disregard for the rules.

Great publicity stunt, but what people need to know is that the Rules of Competition are there on paper only and can be changed at a drop of the hat by the looks of it.

For example the rules of Heat Policy declare no racing before 6.00pm if temp is going to be 38 degrees or greater .Nothing to stop the Management Committee if they know theres a cool change coming in and the Temp is predicted at 39 degrees to still go ahead with a meeting.
I think its a good idea that it doesnt appear to be black and white as first thought.
