below the belt,

Idiom: below the belt

colloq
Unfair; not following the accepted rules of behaviour. A originally from boxing: a blow below the level of the belt is against the Queensberry Rules.
Thesaurus: unscrupulous, unfair, dirty, dishonest, cowardly.

直译似乎是拳击手击打裤腰带(stripe)以下(below)的部位,所以这里是引申为"犯规","不规范举动", "不公平". 应该和"规定"有关.
