Re: Tap Out Rule
My son was guilty of this on 1 single occasion when he was in junior high and boy was the other coach mad. I can see both sides, I have no idea if he was actually being choked or if he tapped out of habit since he was cross training at the local MMA gym where that is a common occurrence when grappling. Either way, I agree that "tapping" should have some consequence whether its forfeit or extra points awarded as there is no way to truly tell in most cases.
