I hate the roller rules with no icing and 4 on 4. Makes for an absolute **** show sometimes.

back in april 2007, i hurt my knee during a game (turn out to be a partial tear of my left knee cartilage, or something i forget what the doctor said). we were losing 5-2 with 7 odd minutes to go in the 3rd. since it a beer league, i was the only goalie. the other team scored a few more goals (dont know how many). one of the players on my team said, if one of the players on the other team does a slap shot into the net, he was going to hit him (or something i forget now). i hate it when a team is going to win but they still want to run up the score. also about 10 years ago, we only had 6 players and me show up to an early morning game. the other team (which had all there players show up) won 4-1 but they knew not to run up the score.

I dunno. I would if I could.

Played against a team last night that had nearly a full bench and was pouring it on the whole game even though we only had 10 skaters. Most of us were subbing too and haven't skated in months.

They ran up the score and kept setting up. I hope there isn't a hurricane again this year down south because we got all the sandbags up here.

My men's league has some odd rules

The first is if there is a offsides it goes to center ice not to the dot outside the blue line. Second on is if a team is up by 6 goal its run time even if the other team scores and it drops to 5 goals the clock keeps running until the next whistle. Third one is if you get three penalty's in a game you are kicked out and if you get 6 in two weeks you are suspended for a week.

The one I hate is automatic even if the player is standing next to the puck and can touch it. They still call icing.

3 penalties in a game and getting ejected is pretty standard and needed IMO. After 2 you need to play clean, if you can't the suspensions mount and deservedly so.

Wow, that's a truly moronic rule. I can see why it's pretty much absolutely never enforced.

When you're 50 years old and in the butterfly, you'll appreciate the extra protection of the rules.

The rule I hate most? On an inadvertent whistle the face-off is where the puck is. That means every time you're on the power play and a ref accidentally calls icing? You get a d-zone face-off out of it for his mistake. Also, net off the moorings is an automatic dead play, even if it had nothing to do with whether the puck was going in or not. Even if the goal's already gone in 5-hole but the ref *just* noticed one spike was 1/4th of an inch off.

it's a rule that has worked well.
Weird, what if you're just having the game of your life and burying your chances? If the score's tied with a minute left and you've already scored three you're limited to just passing the puck?

No slapshot is a stupid rule. A full power wrist shot hurts just as bad if not more. My wrist shot is 60-65 mph, which is as fast as some people's slapshot.
Likewise, some people have wristers upwards of 70 mph.

In every league a mis-called icing should be a face off at centre ice (unofficially with the linesman who made the call dropping the puck) wondering why they would remove that or if your refs are just calling it wrong

That rule, as written, means that if the tip of your stick brushes through air above the crease, as you skate nearby, nowhere near the goalie, the play is supposed to be blown dead. Old players or not, that's a comically awful rule.

I used to play in a summer co-ed 4 on 4 ice league that had some funky rules. Such as - any minor penalty was a penalty shot plus 2 in the box. And if a team got more than 3 goals ahead, every time after that they scored, the other team got a penalty shot (to let them try to catch up). There were a lot of penalty shots, as you can imagine.

As a goalie, it was an interesting league to play in, that's for sure! Luckily most people played with the spirit intended, and it was a lot of fun.

Yah, seems like an interesting idea but I can see some pros and cons. I'm not a ringer but one game I scored a hat trick on the same shift because their goalie was pretty poor positionally and I know how to take advantage of that. Maybe have certain players assigned the hat trick rule because everybody knows they are the best players in the league? Or the best player on each team goal scoring-wise?

then you enjoy your hat trick and start passing. this is a league with no stats, no playoffs, all skill levels mixed together and re-drafted every season. it's designed to be fun and if you've got a hot dog skating around putting 6 goals in the net that's not much fun for his linemates.
the only thing you get from winning this league is last pick in the next draft.
we have other competitive leagues where you can score as much as you want.

Yeah, I'm a fan of this rule. I've seen it around here, in some Coed leagues, and some leagues use it in their bottom divisions. My current spring league doesn't use it and I wish they did. I think it's best in low divisions, as the presence of a ringer really stands out in those divisions. In my spring league, we had a game we got blown out 12-2, but 1 guy on the other team scored 8 of those goals

The USA Hockey rule is how Sleepy described it with the face off in your zone if you are on the power play and the ref accidentally calls icing on the short handed team.

The rule used to be center ice but it was changed in the early 2000s.

The revised rule about faceoff location after wrongly called icings makes sense. Say the shorthanded team ices the puck. Zebra wrongly stops play for icing. Last-play faceoff (defensive zone spot of team on power-play) makes sense. Why should the team who iced the puck down to the opponents end get penalized by having the faceoff come out to center ice merely on a mistake by the officials?

The ref said if you stand by the puck and don't move it he can call delay of game.

That is absurd. I'm not much into roller hockey but I've played and reffed ice hockey at decent levels. I've only called/seen delay of game called due to either causing a stoppage or prolonging one without reason. Similar to that 1-3-1 Flyers/Lightning debacle, no reason the other team couldn't play the puck there. Bobby Orr used to do it to call penalties and never got called.

What I do hate is when a team is ahead and there's still a guy cherry picking. That's just trashy. It's one thing to play hard and get up on a team; it's another to be an a-hole out there and TRY to run up the score. In those cases that's when I, as a goalie, start looking to take out feet on breakaways.

Played in a few beer leagues where you were only allowed to score 2 goals per game. Played in another with a no slap shot rule.

My league allows you to take a slap shot as long as your windup isn't higher then your thigh. Some of us have mastered it. Still some wrist shots are a lot more power full. I've had a brand new shin guard broke because of a wrist shot.

I'm in a league with something similar. There's a "ringer list" of players that are [obviously] too good for the level. Instead of doing the right thing and having them move up, the player is only allowed to score 1 goal. Any additional ones don't count and the ringer gets a 2 min minor penalty.

So obviously what happens is going coast to coast and deking everyone until the backdoor pass opens up.

One time both goalies didn't show up for the game, so to score, we had to hit the middle post inside the net..
