Boost steal can be used on defense, though it is high risk high reward so you really only want to do it when you are absolutely sure you will steal it or when there is another defender behind you. It only "steals" during the very beginning of the boost, so it is fairly hard to time/aim.

It has some issues at its core, like it being hard to visually tell exactly when it steals and when it wears off.. and then accidental steals that you don't expect. Some solutions could be to make the stealing state of the boost more visually obvious, and then remove things like boost stealing from your own team (which is usually accidental). Probably needs more discussion to perfect it, but it's still an interesting mechanic.

Them are my thoughts on it.

We experience something, evaluate it, and then we feel an emotional response according to that evaluation.
Reason is emotion's slave and exists to rationalize emotional experience.
Rationalize emotional response in the present experience.
