It isn't the judgement being questioned rather the logic in applying one rule and possibly not another. The NBA explained the non-travel call. If only they explained many others. Won't happen because no one likes to be questioned. That would mean transparency, lol.
Maybe you missed it but there were 2 dads and 3 different officials referenced in my reply.

I cannot speak for any of the 3rd parties involved but, as for myself, I would dissuade you from concerning yourself with advanced issues that are well beyond your current level of training, experience, philosophy, sophistication and salary level.

Seems you have a way to go until you master the requisite skills and nuance pertinent to your current work environment.

If you would like to experience some transparency, have a look at the daily report at

You may be able to begin to glean the answers to your impertinent questions.
