Rule 69 defines misconduct as acts of bad manors and poor sportsmanship.

How does this translate to social media?

Would it be considered bad manners to question the judgement of the PRO or Jury during a championship?

You might like to look at this old thread


Key things about commenting on a protest committee's decision:

 

  Quote

8.7 With respect to the first issue (the dissent from the decision of the appeals Committee), the Panel is mindful of the need for decisions of officials in sport to be respected and not open to abuse. ...

 

[but]

 

It is always acceptable to have a difference of opinion with officials, and indeed it is inevitable that from time to time officials and competitors will disagree on decisions made. However, differences of opinion must be raised in a respectful manner and at an appropriate time and place.

 

So any reasoned discussion of a protest or appeal committee's decision, even by a party, provided it avoids bad language or abuse, and provided it is not expressed in some inappropriate context, such as allinternationaljudgesareb**tards.com. will not breach rule 69.

Initiating thread drift already but in the context of what might be a trend in Race Management/protest/jury behaviour?

Decision from Opi Worlds in which a sailor is doubly rule 2 disqualified (DNE) for knowingly infringing and not taking a penalty and also for telling the other sailor to ‘suck my balls’.

http://2019worlds.optiworld.org/en/default/toa/race-privateprotest2pdf/id_protest/1651

I fail to see what the latter has to do with sportsmanship? Brass I think you posted something on this a while ago? Surely should have been dealt with as misconduct under Rule 69?

More generally has the lowering of the standard for 69 from gross misconduct to misconduct had an effect? Seems to me there are some indications that it has - eg some of our 49er sailors being denied racing for a post criticising but not abusing the RC/Jury.

That’s a long thread to read ...

I think there may be cultural differences about what is bad manners. I’d say it’s poor form to openly dispute or contradict the actions of the officials.

That's a pretty hefty International Jury and I'm hesitant to criticise.

But I don't think that offensive words have any effect on the fairness of the competition.  See 

Rule 2, Fair Sailing
Rule 69, Misconduct
Generally, an action by a competitor that directly affects the fairness of the competition or failing to take an appropriate penalty when the competitor is aware of breaking a rule, should be considered under rule 2. Any action, including a serious breach of rule 2 or any other rule, that the committee considers may be an act of misconduct should be considered under rule 69.

Dare I say it, perhaps the Jury, having decided that DNE was the appropriate penalty in all the circumstances, was trying to avoid the extra paperwork (and exposure of competitors to further MNA sanctions) of a rule 69 hearing.

Might be a little precious, but it would depend on the actual facts.

Was this a rule 69 decision after racing had begun, or a rule 76 exclusion?

Decision published?

Decision was published - I couldn’t find it and will look again. From memory it was not rule 76.

Yes that seems a plausible explanation. But it illustrates the issue in terms of no longer ‘gross’ misconduct: ‘suck my balls’ is part of the normal vernacular of 14 year old boys in many cultures. It uses no foul language. Given its everyday normality I find it hard to see it as abusive. It’s merely a colourful way of saying ‘I’m not spinning’.

I wondered that too. Using RRS2 ensures that the incident ended there.

Few contexts I can think of it's a colourful way of getting a smack in the mouth.

I was thinking about this.

ISTM that 'suck my balls' is significantly more provocative than Get F***ed or F*** Off.  Furthermore, not only is it rude but it's homophobic.

I think maybe that this sort of language at a junior event was the very sort of thing that removing 'gross' from rule 69 was aimed at.
