The intentions of the law may be crystal-clear to law-makers. The actual 
English meaning of the law may seem glaringly obvious to senior directors. 
The unfortunate fact remains that the law is so sophisticated, that the 
meaning is ambiguous to many ordinary directors and opaque to most players. 
Hence directors will give different rulings on the same facts and such 
inconsistency is perceived as unfair by players.

Judging by controversies, here and elsewhere, Claims-law is just the tip of 
the ice-berg.

Unfortunately it appears that only a tiny minority of rule-makers and 
directors believe that rules should be made simple enough for most players 
and directors to understand them.
