    Deadlift "Controlled Descent" Rule

    At a recent meet, a few of us were redlighted because we "put the bar down too hard". These were not near drops. In all cases, the lifter rode the bar all the way to the floor with both hands wrapped around the bar. I have never seen the control rule applied in this manner, and it knocked me for a loop (to put it mildly).

    I realize you can't make a call without being there, but based on my statements, do you feel the rule was applied correctly?
