Thats another grey area atm. Some judges take the entire back counting from the forehead and others take a slight mohawk and a little on the back. I think that every judge should account for the same criteria...which isnt the case now.
I'm for the latter, and i suppose you are for the former.....

Its not the judges, its the referee who's responsible for spotting back of the head shots. Theres a defined part of the head in the rules I can't remember exactly but the referees need to be more vigilant to spot them. Travis Browne got away with it against Gonzaga

I obviously meant refs. My mistake. But in my opinion it is defined too thightly now.

I agree but my thread wasnt about what we would like to see. Rather what would be likely/possible to achieve.
