i guess one for mr.goddard or any other experienced officials. this rule is one of the most confusing to me. what is the EXACT ruling on it?
i can certainly understand you cant hold on to it so as to avoid a takedown but can you lean on it when you have someone pinned to the fence or basically any position where your hand is on it?
its impossible to put your hand on it without your fingers slipping through. you may not be 'holding' it, just leaning on it but as its chain link your fingers will go through
anyway any clarification on the ruling about this would be appreciated
