@MoonlightRose: It is not fishy. it is standard rules for netball. You will get told to remove anything that is not allowed whether it be a ring, a hair clip or bracelet.

 @nearlymarriedlass:  Which country are you in?

I’m so sorry, I cannot imagine how upset I would be if I lost my engagement ring or wedding band.

It’s really sad when things like this happen, especially when you were so close and that they were stolen from a place you love to go to. People make me angry.

@j_jaye:  I understand why she was told to remove the ring but not why she was told to do so in front of other people.  Why did she have to remove it in front of other people?  Why couldn’t she do so privately so no one could see where she put it?  That may have taken a little bit more time but would make so much more sense.

@SoobySays:  Oh, well that is sad then. If it had been some old crazed relative there might have been a chance of you getting some of it back. Hopefully you still have at least one price of her jewellery.

There are some really nice, sympathetic bees on here; however all I can think of is… What the hell were you thinking?!?!

@Rubbs:  I’ve got to second this. My friend just had her iPad stolen because she left it charging in the lunch room at school and forgot about it when we went back to class.

Don’t leave expensive things unattended. Thank goodness it was insured!

@MoonlightRose:  It is the way the centres are set up (and soemtimes they are outside courts at schools or community centres). There are no facilities to go and discretly remove anything unless you go to the rest room.

But that said the umpire will not hold the game for someone to run off court for 5 mins to take off a ring. It is unfair to the umpires, the other players and to the netball association who are trying to run an organised time constrainted competition. It is the players onus to remove all such items prior to the game. The OP was actually really lucky that the umpire waited for her to take the ring off. At my centre the game would start without me and I wouldn’t be allowed onto the courst until after the next goal was scored.

For example at my local netball competition the last game is scheduled at 10:05pm. Each game goes for about an hour. They run games on 3 courts every hour starting from 5pm. If each of the 5 games before us stopped to allow someone to remove something then the last game would not start until 10:30pm. A bit unfair don’t you think?

@j_jaye:  Thank you for explaining.  I don’t play sports of any kind so I didn’t realize the way that the centres are set up or the scheduling for the games.  I had just never heard of being asked to take off an expensive piece of jewelry in front of everyone before.  It sounded to me like the umpire was trying to make EVERYONE aware of her ring so she wouldn’t be able to say that he was the only one who knew that she was wearing it when she noticed it gone later.  But now I understand that thia is NOT the case.  I truly feel sorry for the OP, though.

OP, any updates?
