Offensive Exclusion

Besides a misconduct or a brutality, is it within the rules to be excluded while on offense?

When I took the old WPA course on refereeing the way it was explained is that a contra foul on offense is considered the equivalent of an exclusion file for defense. Therefore I would say as a general rule it appears that an exclusion would normally not be called on offense. However in the situations you mention the foul is more egregious and the exclusion is essentially a safety/conduct issue.

Yes, particularly for overaggressive play - including for aggressive suit grabs / pulls in the women's game (exposure requires exclusion on offense or defense).
