Several innovations will be tried this season, principally the use of goal judges, substitutions, and penalty periods meted out to players guilty of misconduct on the field of play. Goal judges will act as timekeeper for the penalty periods. When a player is ordered off the field he will proceed at once to the back of his own goal where the goal judge will notify him at the expiration of his expulsion period, to return to the game.
Two substitutions are allowed up to within 15 minutes of time up. It is understood, of course, that when a player is order off the field for a penalty period, no substitutions will be allowed. Also when a player is taken out of the game or forced to retire owing to injury, he cannot resume in the same game. Once a player is taken out he is out for the remainder of the game.
