- Lines 415 and 1384 indicate that robots that are manually started have to wait 15s before locomoting at every stoppage of play. Does that mean at every kick-off, drop ball AND free kick? What happens if a robot taking a free kick is manually started?
- Line 284 states that “all substitutes are subject to the authority and jurisdiction of the referee, whether called upon to play or not”. Can a referee use this rule to block an otherwise legal substitution? For what situations is this rule relevant?
- Line 605 states that “The allowance for time lost is at the discretion of the referee.” Does this mean that the referee can choose to add 1 minute to a game half for example? Or should this perhaps be reworded that the allowance for time lost is automatically performed by the game controller, in the form of the time compensations that it already automatically does?
- Line 252 says that a match may not start if either team has less than one player. Does this mean that the team without a robot forfeits the match, or is it somehow postponed?
- Multiple methods of resolving drawn games have been presented (extra time, kicks from the penalty mark, extended kicks from the penalty mark). Which of these will actually be used at RoboCup to decide drawn games? This is not stated. If it is extra time followed by extended kicks, does that mean that penalty shootouts are never carried out against a goalie anymore?
