NOTE: You are viewing the March 1, 2014 revision of The Rules of Flat Track Roller Derby, which is officially retired.
The current version of the rules can be found at Rules Central.
Insubordination penalties will be given for actions that demonstrate a disregard for the authority of the Officials, whether intentional or not. Examples of Insubordination include, but are not limited to, failure to leave the track for a penalty, failure to leave the track after fouling out, and the use of contemptuous speech directed at an Official.
No Impact/No Penalty
5.14.1 - Intentionally committing an Illegal Procedure is not Insubordination and must not be penalized as such.
5.14.3 - A skater who, after having been clearly and appropriately called on a penalty (per Section 126.96.36.199), fails to leave the track. This penalty will be assessed even if the skater is not aware that they have been called, so long as:
188.8.131.52 - The referee calling the penalty was correctly positioned for the skater to potentially see the call.
184.108.40.206 - The referee calling the penalty did so loudly enough to be heard, given the referee’s position, and the constraints and volume of the venue.
5.14.4 - The use of obscene, profane, or abusive language or gestures directed at an Official. If no one can be singled out as the offending part, but it is clearly coming from a skater, this penalty will be issued to the corresponding Captain.
5.14.6 - The repeated use of obscene, profane, or abusive language or gestures directed at an Official.
