Imagine, if you can, really shoddy grass fields. In order to play properly, everyone needs to adjust their play style to accomodate for the rough and grippy surface. In order to do anything effective, more strength and power needs to be applied; pushing, hitting, passing, dribbling, tackling. During a game, more often than not, a clean tackle would be made which sounds admittedly loud, making a chopping-like sound. It is clear to players that there was only stick-to-ball-to-stick contact, but the sound, thanks to the degree of strength application, definitely makes it sound like hacking. Are there umpires out there who would let this go? If I was umpiring, I would like to think that I would have taken the field into account and paid extra-close attention to tackles etc for contact. Or, which I guess I understand, is there no leniency with this sort of thing in order to prevent risk to players?
