Once again i personally have never seen this type of thing happen, it just kinda baffles me.
You know the rule is pretty vague when people who have played and watched the sport for YEARS have a discussion like this
The carrying of sticks above the normal height of the
shoulder is prohibited. The Referee may assess a minor or a
major penalty on any player violating this rule.
I can't see how the rule can be written any clearer. Your lack of rules knowledge is more to blame for confusion than rules clarity.
