Answered: Introducing Driver Control Load Early

What’s the correct interpretation for introducing a driver control before the last 30 seconds?

<SG4> says to count the cube as being scored in their opponents far zone
<G4> says it’s illegal to intentionally contact scoring objects. Per this interpretation of egregious, if the match is a blowout, the offending team would receive a warning. If the match is pretty even, the ref would have to figure out if that driver control load could change the offending alliance from winner to loser and, if so, DQ the offender. Clearly, the warning would come right away during the match and the decision to DQ would probably have to wait until the end.

Are either of those correct? Thanks!

<SG4> would apply, with the Cube being Scored in the opponents Far Zone.
