RULE 3-2-5-E STILL SUCKS: 18 PLAYS A GAME

Original estimates on the total number of plays lost per game due to rule 3-2-5e ran in the "oh, you know, just 10-14 plays" range. The actual total thus far after one weekend of play? 18.32 plays a game, a sum closer to the high end of what most rule-watchers predicted.

The rule is bad taco meat that's getting worse. Your non-democratically elected and likely unresponsive contact for the rule is:
