I'd love to know how you think umpires establish intent then?
Stop the game for a quick interview? Quick lie detector test? Administer a quick dose of sodium thiopental? Maybe have Ron Iddles as the third umpire to pop out and do a quick interrogation?
I don't write the rules, but, unlike you, I can read them.
I don't care what excuses the powers that be have for the mediocre adjudication of the game, the word intent is in the rules and the umpires are interpreting intent. Unlike you, even the incompetent umpiring fraternity can interpret intent from what the player does, at least that is the implicit assumption of the rule.
So, either the rules are a lie, or you're full of it.
