We had a dicussion at practice about standing outside of the field during play. Having passed my Advanced (twice) I was 100% sure that it wasn't allowed. But in the interpretations ( rule 11.2 ) it now says that players can leave the field whenever they want to ( except for one non-Spirited example ).
I can remember that it used to be Not Allowed to leave the field ( if it wasn't for your momentum carrying you over the sideline ), but can it be that that rule has been changed recently ? And can you explain why ? Because to some's opinion that gives the Offence player an extra tactical advantage, moving out of sight of his/her defender.
