The speaker was talking about clubs with problems that look at other clubs and assume everything is going smoothly. This is a mash up of “the grass is always greener on the other side” (other people seem to be in a better situation than you, although that might not be the case) and maybe “on the fence” (undecided). A shout out to Daniel Mustard for sending this one in! Daniel needs to ketch up and send in more malaphors.
This was heard during a discussion about a type of severe acute malnutrition and whether or not it is caused by protein imbalance. This is a mash up of “the jury is still out” (a decision has not been reached yet) and “on the fence” (undecided about something). Thanks to Katie Hatfield for hearing this one in class and passing it on!
