I recall Goddard demonstrating contact to an umpire by actually showing him by pushing the umpire. I think it was Goddard but nothing came about. It was talked about thoroughly. Toby in trouble for mine. Brenton Speed is suggesting Stevic moved like a matador out of the way which made it look like contact.I don't remember any other examples where it was explicitly deliberate like Toby's though. I'm quite willing to have my memory expanded.
You got it.One other thing with the camera angle of Greene/Stevic to take into account......
That focal length will compress the background, so what is behind appears closer than reality.
Similar to when the media do a hit-job of people not social distancing. A lower level straight-on longer focal length will make people appear close together whereas a drone /side-on will show the truth.
He didn’t touch him.They're saying the rule about umpire contact also involves intent, whether or not contact is actually made.
It does look like there was some kind of intent, the way he got so close to him.
Why does he do this sort of stuff?
