    And yea, I disagree with where that line is now.
    So if it was in the rules, why was the umpire talking to them? Were they sighted by the match referee?

    You can do anything, doesn't mean it's in the rules.

    In baseball you can hit the first baseman with the bat, but it's still against the rules.

    That's ridiculous, what you're talking about itsn't sledging as such. It's just insults. Sledging is talking about the game and trash talking about it.

    Why you'd want to take away that mental side of the game is beyond me. It makes scoring a hundred so much sweeter when you've done it with the oposition throwing everything at you.

    If anyone said something like "Your mother sucks sailors for loose change" he'd just look a cock.

    Might be worse at higher levels, I dunno.

    Happened at school level.. But to the credit of the ofrficials, they didn't go at me as much as they went at him.. I slapped him and the leg umpire heard the whole thing from nearby and they got the guy DQ'd from the rest of the tournament.
