    Most inconsistently applied rule in football. Even the deliberate out of bounds rule is easier to predict that whether an umpire will pay holding the ball or not.

    Infuriating!!

    St Kilda players were regularly guilty of attempting to win possession by sliding into the contests and then making contact with Swans players below the knees. This was frequent enough to be seen by even the most distracted of umpires.
    Yet not one decision was made.
    I cringe every time I see it and especially when Gary Rohan is on the field.
    It is almost like the umpires forget the rule exists.

    Then the times they do award it makes no sense at all.

    I don't envy the umpires one iota, and the more other games you watch as a neutral you see the inconsistencies being consistent, but it seems like in-the-back is rarely ever adjudicated these days.
    C'mon Chels!
