The Short Score: Crossfire Rule Update

PRCA Pro Official Harry Rose clears up some questions on the new crossfire rule, and 2019 World Champ Wesley Thorp discusses the process of rewriting and proposing the new rule.

It comes as no surprise that the initial episode of The Short Score on the PRCA’s new crossfire rule drew a lot of attention., considering it’s the most controversial call in rodeo. In hopes of answering some questions listeners had regarding the rule, we met with Pro Official Harry Rose who has flagged the team roping at the NFR 21 times.

We also caught up with 2019 World Champion Heeler Wesley Thorp to go into more detail on writing the new rule and the entire proposal process. Thorp played a significant role in the entire process of the rule change and also held a seminar last fall at his house in Texas where judges and contestants came together to work on a solution to the controversial call.
