UEFL Appeals Board: 2012 First Half in Review

With MLB's first half in the books, the UEFL Appeals Board releases its biannual report. During phases ii and iii of the UEFL season (Rule 2-1-a), the Appeals Board oversaw 31 appeals, of which one was denied, one was summarily ruled upon and 29 were adjudicated.

Summary Decisions (2)
Denied (1): 012; Certiorari rejected due to untimely challenge. Rule 6-2 requires all appeals be filed during the seasonal phase in which the ejection occurs.
Deferred (1): 040; Reason for ejection summarily deferred from QOC to Unsportsmanlike due to a repeat visit argument (Rule 6-2-b-5-b; the DiMuro Rule). Rules 6-2-g & 6-3-j allow for Reason summary decisions.

Arbitrated Matters (29)
Affirmed (23): 11 Incorrect, 9 Correct, 2 Calling, 1 Irrecusable
Reversed (6): 5 Correct => Incorrect, 1 Incorrect => Correct

RichMSN and TMac are the only ones worth keeping... outside of the commissioners.

Hmmm, seems that Gil and Jeremy like to abstain a lot. I wonder why that is? (wink, wink)

RichMSN said...

They abstain because they post the original decisions. They only vote, by UEFL rule, if they need to break a tie.

The rest of us abstain mainly when our chosen umpires are involved or if we're away on vacation. I was lucky enough to have a few scores in the first half (either primary, secondary, or crew), so I abstained there.

@ RichMSN

I know. That was why I added the (wink, wink) part at the end.

who gets the points for guessing number of ejections at the all star break. I was fricken one away from getting it. At least I am still in first place.
