Hard to umpire because the powers that be make well intended rules but have zero awareness of any unintended consequence outside of that. The man on the mark is the perfect example. In isolation, it a good rule, opens the play and creates a flow, but as a consequence of this rule we now have the issue of players getting called play on and mowed down if they take one step off their line. Umpiring is made harder because of those who make the rule changes.
