Tim that is an interesting question.  Looking back at the rules it does not
define what the floor of the tank is.  Looking at the vagueness of the
instruction the bottom of tank can still be the floor. It is just an
interesting way to read the rules.  I know that Head Ref (Steve Scherr) at
the Osborn Park Tournament Address this directly with the field judges and
still said that it counted.
