Over the past 10 Gay Bowls there have been controversies over players, over rules, over the schedule, over the seeding, over membership, over fields and just about any issue dealing with the event. But there has never been a clock controversy, and that is thanks to the untimed plays at the end of each half. That’s why I think the proposed rule change to get rid of untimed plays at the end of halves is unnecessary and potentially dangerous to the integrity of a game.
