Air Bud Clause

From Blaseball Wiki

The remainder of this article contains lore created collaboratively by the Blaseball community.

The Air Bud Clause is a principle Internet League Blaseball umpires follow when making rulings: that anything not explicitly forbidden by The Book of Blaseball is to be considered legal in Blaseball.

This clause has attracted controversy, with critics complaining that many of the tactics it allows are unfair and violate the "spirit of Blaseball." Said critics refuse to elucidate on where said spirit resides or how it communicates its intentions. However, as players take advantage of the Air Bud Clause in a variety of ways and a stricter interpretation of Blaseball's rules would damage their ability to compete, it's unlikely the clause will ever be overturned.
