Hello! Recently at an event we have found some confusion about the wording of T19, where different teams have interpreted it differently. I wanted to double check whether teams could request a stop-time in finals matches that have not gone to a tiebreaker match?
For instance lets say two teams both made finals, lets call them Alliance A and B, both of these teams notify the head ref that they wish to stop at some stage of the non-tiebreaker match.
Alliance A scores 95 points and requests to stop with 16 seconds remaining Alliance B scores 95 points and requests to stop with 13 seconds remaining
Given this was a standard finals match, should stop times be considered at all or ignored? Would this scenario lead to tiebreaker matches which than include a stop time?
