The Best Unwritten Rules in Sports

There are a many rules in sports. A lot of them are really dumb.

For example, the delay of game rule in hockey. Dumb rule. The you-can't-push-your-own-player-forward-on-special teams rule. Dumb rule.

And it turns out, the teams, coaches and players don't need all of these rules to conduct themselves properly during games. They can figure out what's right and what's wrong all by themselves.

In spite of the fact that most sports are accompanied by a variety of tedious and unnecessary regulations, players and coaches have created their own set of rules—unwritten rules, but rules that are just as important as the ones in the official handbook.

Shockingly, these make a lot more sense than delay of game penalties in hockey.
