24. Is it true that the "minor" hockey countries have no input on the rules or its development?
No, it is not true. The Hockey Rules Board aims to listen to everyone about rules development subjects not least because it is very aware that the rules apply throughout the game. Furthermore, in recent times the Hockey Rules Board has been very pleased that it has been some of the so called "minor" nations who have been most active in conducting trials - and their experience has influenced thinking in the Hockey Rules Board.
