Hey Gil just wondered how many more votes did the equipment throwing need to pass. WWJD220

It needed one for an absolute majority. The vote was tied... which means those plays still get to go to the Appeals Board if desired.

I understand the thought behind this proposal. However, throwing the equipment in disgust of a call is the reason for the ejection and still has nothing to do with QOC of the call in question. That's why I believe they should not be irrecusable. Irrecusable should remain for plays in which QOC is impossible to determine or in which no "call-able play" preceded the argument or act that leads to an ejection.
