<G14> Offensive Robots get the “benefit of the doubt.” (better wording)



  1. Can we modify words, so we don't imply the Head Referee's make mistakes (aka, "err")? Better to end the phrase as ""referees will decide in favor of the offensive Robot."

Initial/current text: In a case where Head Referees are forced to make a judgment call regarding a destructive interaction between a defensive and offensive Robot, or an interaction which results in a questionable Violation, referees will err on the side of the offensive Robot.
