As a Back player it is my duty to escort them off the field as quickly as I can so that they don't have time to relay that my front men have moved up. Sorry but it is true.

We lost our first game at Cup because one of our guys shot out someone, then exposed his body to that guy to shoot someone else...the first guy played on and shot out half our team.
Yup - guilty here as well. I don't care during a tournament because when there are points up for grabs, I'll be danged if I let that guy give away positions, shield other players or play on. I don't necessarily shoot them off the field, just until a ref comes and physically calls him out. If he's taking his time though, I know somethings going on, so I "remind" him that's not the proper thing to do.

Our team has suffered a loss or two because of that very situation GeeZus mentioned. We missed the finals in one tournament because of it. It's a hard lesson to learn.

NEVER in rec play though. If I shoot a lot, it's mainly at the bunkers themselves to keep the players back in and for no other reason.
