And what's up with the petty fines? Where does that $ go? If I was writing those minutes I couldn't keep a straight face.
Some rules in the book involve decisions affecting hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars wagered. Some not so much. Stewards didn't write the rulebook. They are paid to administer the rules as set forth in that book.
