Just thinking out load
The thinking behind this was that when the mercy rule was 6, teams would often put the brakes on once they hit 4 goals. As a result, it would completely ruin the flow of the game in the sense that they would go into a full on trap, with five guys sitting back.
By increasing the limit, it will allow the game to flow a little better and it wouldn't "end" per say, once a team hit 4-5 goals. On the flip side, it also gives the other team an opportunity to jump back into the game, without having to fight through the neutral zone. We definitely took the possibility of a 10-0 game into account, but we expect that people will still have a sense of sportsmanship and respect for one another.
