Interesting....
Animosity says it only triggers on a Pass Action.
A Dump Off is not a Pass Action, but....

Dump-Off (Passing)
This skill allows the player to make a Quick Pass when an opponent
declares that he will throw a block at him, allowing the player to get rid of
the ball before he is hit. Work out the Dump-Off pass before the
opponent makes his block. The normal throwing rules apply, except that
neither team's turn ends as a result of the throw, whatever it may be.
After the throw is worked out your opponent completes the block, and
then carries on with his turn. Dump-Off may not be used on the second
block from an opponent with the Frenzy skill or in conjunction with the
Bombardier or Throw Team-Mate skills.


Normal throwing rules apply suggests Animosity should trigger.


I'd rule it applies, but happy to be corrected.

"Normal throwing rules apply" doesn't suddenly make it a Pass Action though, does it?

Dump off is NOT a Pass action
using the same rules gives you guidelines on how it is done

Animosity does not apply

Good point, I'll go away again.

I agree .. but that one falls in the rule interaction oversight category. :wink:

So your intent was that it should trigger Animosity?

Yes ... it should have been included in the list. Can honestly say it was an oversight. Dump Off is half way between Hand-off and Pass so yeah its on the same spectrum that was meant to trigger Dump Off. Pure and simple oversight when making the skill. But rules should not be read into beyond the words on paper ... so I agree that Dump Off does not trigger Animosity. .... but it should have. ;-)
