The manual is the official ruling, not whatever comes out of my mouth 2 minutes after being blown up.

Re: Q+A for Sack Attack

Quote:
<SG1> At the beginning of each Match, each Robot must be placed such that it is touching one of their colored Alliance Starting Tiles, not touching any Scoring Object other than those permitted by <SG2> and not touching any other foam field tiles. No more than one Robot may start the match on any one
Alliance Starting Tile

Emphasis mine.
Edit: rule for starting position, not for parking bonus.

Re: Q+A for Sack Attack

That's the requirement for a legal starting position, not the requirement for the parked bonus.

EDIT:
Quote:
Parked – A robot is considered to be Parked if it is touching one of its own Alliance Starting Tiles at the
end of the Match.
