I have mixed feelings on this issue, but since it has happened in three different matches lately I wonder what others think about it.
This came up again twice yesterday in the same match with NaTo - Mattin. NaTo is in the top position in control of Mattin, releases him, and without Mattin barely moving Nato jumps on his back again and gets another TD awarded. I think this is on Mattin as he should be more active in presenting himself defensively, but doesn't the rulebook require the defensive/bottom wrestler to be released and to be in neutral facing the offensive/top wrestler?
Seems they are allowing this pattern routinely now. 1. Let up a little on the down wrestler 2. Get in front of down wrestler 3. Circle around and jump back on top of down wrestler. 4. Down wrestler never really presents himself as "in neutral and squared up to defend".
