Anyone who is capable of playing this game, so long as they're physically fit and is capable of playing. No gender limitations, no age limitations. each team consists of twenty players.
a. handler- a player who must handle the badger. Only one handler on one team. No two handlers can exist at the same time.
b. Defensive brawls- these are the remaining players who must tackle down opposing players to aid the handler. A defensive brawl can become the next handler if the first hands the badger to him.
a. A Regulation badger brawl fields (minus the end zones) are 100 yards long. Each end zone contains a goal post and is 10 yards long. Yards are measured from each respective end zone's goal line, beginning with , until yard markers meet in the middle at the 50 yard line.
b. Though all yards are measured with "hash marks" or white lines on the sidelines, plus a line extending across the width of the field every five yards. Only every 10th yard line (10, 20, 30, etc.) is labeled with a numeral.
a. At the game, each team consist of ten players, all suited up in a protective armor, created to withstand animal bites with a helmet that features a protective window to avoid getting foam into the player's eyes.
b. A whole game is made up of four quarters, each lasts for ten minutes. There's a half-time break after the second quarter that lasts for twelve minutes.
c. The game starts when the referee releases the first rabid badger. Players must NOT crowd the animal to avoid harming it or for the animal to harm the player.
d. Each player must grab the animal and, with it, run to their team's goal located on the opposite side of their field. If team A is on the left and team B is on the right, team A's goal is on the right and vice versa.
e. Player from the opposite team of the player who has the badger must try to tackle down the player holding the badger. Otherwise, players belonging to the team of the player who has the badger must either defend the said player or get the badger, passed by his/her teammate, and try to score in his/her place.
f. If a player successfully ran with the badger to their goal, their team gets two points. A whole quarter consist of repetition of this gameplay.

b. A player must be holding the badger in order to get the points. They are NOT allowed to throw the badger to their goal. That is an immediate foul.
c. A score will only be given IF the badger AND the player gets to the goal. If a quarter ends with a player still holding the badger but is nowhere near the goal, there is no score given.
d. a player from an opposing team who "accidentally" scores on his/her opponent's goal calls an immediate foul, and gets one point away from his/her team.
e. If by the end of the fourth quarter, two players, each from both teams, grab hold of the badger, a "sudden death match" is at hand. A Sudden Death match is two minutes long and only said two players are allowed to compete. the goal is the same, they must grab the badger and run with it to their team's goal. If both players ends with the same scenario by the end of the match, another sudden end match will be held.
f. each quarter must consist of teams of different members. A player cannot be in the same team for more than two games unless called for. (a player is removed, fouled, disqualified, etc.)
g. If a badger dies of natural reasons, without the cause or aid of any of the players or officials, a spare badger must be used and the quarter, if interrupted, will start again but will only last for the remaining time left.
a. any player who commit a foul gets a point away from his/her team.
b. a foul can be any or any combination of the following:
1. harming the animal. Disabling or killing the animal will render the player out of the team for two quarters and a removal of one point. If a player from each team manage to grab hold of the animal and either player refuse to let go, this counts as harming the animal, and both players are fouled.
2. harming a player to disabling. A player who commit this will be out in the team for two quarters and will take away one point from his/her team.
