Question 12

A player who has suffered minor whip lash injuries in a car crash has been wearing a surgical collar around his neck as prescribed by his doctor in training.  His condition improves, and he decides to resume playing and runs out wearing his surgical collar as a precaution.  The opposition immediately protest, claiming he cannot play, it is no different than a snood which are now outlawed.  How do you handle the situation? 

Answer 12

I would request that he removes the collar informing him that you will not allow him to participate unless he does. I might frankly have given a different answer prior to the decision to outlaw the snood.
