Just means more off ball and dirty plays are being missed.
Agree 100%. Itís the absolute worse. Fortunately Iím at a place in my career where I can avoid them in HS (sub-varsity only in FL). Iíll take them in youth rec only because the game is slower and generally a lot less at stake. There was a point about 8 years ago (crappy economic environment for school board) where they were considering reverting back to two man to save money. I was prepared to hang up the whistle. Fortunately it never came to pass.
