During this year’s competition, there were some uncertainties about the rules of the penalty shootout. These rules should be clarified.
The main discussion point is, that the placement of the kicker is unclear. Currently, the rules do not state, where the kicker needs to be placed during a penalty kick. Three suggestions were made on where the kicker should be placed:
- The kicker needs to be placed anywhere behind the penalty point
- The kicker needs to be placed behind the penalty point, and at least one robot length away from the ball.
- The kicker can be placed anywhere on the field
What are your opinions on this rule?
