    NOTE: This is for a normal non-special VRC Competition in the High School Division that can qualify to other events in VEX Robotics.
    If a rule doesn't exist, does a referee have permission to make up rules? If a rule does exist, does a referee have permission to make a rule lacking/removed from the competition? Is it allowed for competitions to change the rulings around to fit their needs, or does a competition have to follow the rules as logically correct as possible?
    EDIT//: I am intending on using this a source in the future if it ever is needed. I do not intend to blame any judge/competition, especially when I have never seen any rules altered from the official game manual in South Texas by the competition or referees.
    Thank you so much for your time :D

    To quote the relevant referee training video :

    A referee’s job is to enforce the rules as they are written, not as they think they should be written. A referee should not alter, add rules or penalize teams who do not play the game the way they “feel” is right.
