Hmmm....Patrick. By the way, nice eye roll towards Matt at the Coaches/ES meeting.
He deserved it... he was the first ES to decide to make an announcement, breaking the good flow we had going.
Did you mean rolls?
He had the look of one who had drunk the cup of life and found a dead beetle at the bottom.

Not sure if this has been covered before, but I don't think it's right to just have the coaches of the teams which appeal to argue the appeal. Most often the students doing the event for that team have more knowledge of the event/device/rules, while the coach simply has a general understanding of each event.

The coach is the conduit. A main reason for this is that they can serve as an initial triage for issues that are worth appealing and those that aren't. Another reason is that if you can't explain the situation / facts to your coach, you aren't likely to be able to explain them to the arbitration team. Oftentimes the arbitration committee will ask the coach to bring the students in to demonstrate / talk to them if they need further information.
