Excerpt from the FAQ section about what a good answer is:
Is it supported by "authority?" Back up claims by referencing sources. This is particularly important when discussing rules.
Can I provide a unique perspective? Add something new. If you have insight to add to another user's answer, consider doing so in a comment.
Can I share my personal experience(s)? Expertise shines through.
The question was answered previously by a few users which was supported by evidence from various sources. The two new answers do not offer anything new, perspective-wise or source-wise. Yes, there are some questions where you cannot give references and can only speak through experience of playing, watching or understanding the sport. But this, hardly, was such a question.
My personal opinion is that, when one is trying to learn things about a game through Sports SE, having answers that contain links from credible sources go a long way in helping them understand the intricacies of the sport, than just a one line Yes/No answer.
