Epl sideline rules question

After this event and thinking about it I'm a little ticked about the counter side line participation. What are the rules about sound devices on the sideline. Just wanna know in the rules are megaphones legal yes or no.

Well from my understanding Chad and the wonderful staff of the EPL follow PSP rules, so that means no megaphones. And you really can't do anything about counter side line coaching either, its relatively a part of the game man. Your team should know your calls and good communication.

Electronic Megaphones are not allowed. Spectators can used cheering megaphones (the simple plastic ones).

Not sure who it was could been just randoms or the team itself. The match was 3 rd game of the semis vs alliance. Also heard counter coaching was a issue on 5 man field also

Hey Markie first off get your team on point with communication before you try to counter coach another team. Thats where your flaws were at.

First Question was to the epl. 2nd I don't have any plans to counter coach it's something simple wrong to do. 3rd off I never said it was Alliance re read what was said it could have been just randoms on the side line that thought they where cool.

I don't counter coach because I don't agree and find it to be unsportmans but its part of the game that can't be stopped unless you take out all sideline participation.

Just remember the game is won and lost between the lines. Everything else is immaterial.

just like in psp i like to follow my own instincts. coaching is helpful with kill counts but i hate how players rely on them so much on when/where to bump or shoot... it takes away the skills but its part of the game.

I agree.

It really bothers me that on the EPL's site under the section for FAQ's it says that all spectators and coaches are going to have to be 20' away yet they are right up against the net all the time. I feel like the players on the field should communicate well enough and there should be no sideline help. Its not about who has the loudest person on the sideline, its about the players adapting and communicating ON THE FIELD with each other.

you want to really get rid of sideline coaching then the two teams that are going to play against each other need to have an agreement between each other absolutely no coaching that's the only way there will no coaching.

I see what you saying and I agree. This sounds like a good idea.

Another thing they could try is having all of the teams each sign a waiver at the start of the day saying that they cannot coach from the sideline and if they do they can be thrown out (or be given like 1 or 2 warnings first).
