    Appeals Committee's

    What is the purpose of an appeal's committee? What exactly are they meant to rule on?

    Basically players or teams in events can appeal against pretty much any decision that is made that affects them, unless it is stated that an appeal is not allowed (eg Article 10.2). Why do you ask?

    An appeals committee are a group who make a decision on those who yell out 'Howzat!?'

    In the wise words of Rincewind, "read the first post".

    Else, why pose the question?

    Since my name has been used in vain in this thread I feel morally obliged to defend Garvin on this point. I believe simply asking people for their opinion on the purpose of an appeals committee does not constitute an admission of absolute ignorance on the matter.

    My reading of the first post was more around the matters which might be heard before an appeals committee. Another possible reason was to spark debate based on differences of opinion between other posters which Garvin may have had reason to believe existed.

    Belthasar,

    were that to be true we'd all be staying up late at night watching "timeless" test matches

    but then again there's quite a few of us here who have "missed the boat" already ...

    Correct on both points, two point for RW . I thought I would ask as almost everything else has been asked in this thread .

    Interesting how different ppl have come to different conclusions based on a couple of questions asked by myself to start the thread.
