I believe one of the mantras I've seen on here goes, "If you call out of your area, get an elephant and not a mouse."

A travel that is marginal at best in both real-time and slow-motion is probably one of the smallest mice an official could go after.

Both deecee's and my sentiment were expressed quite a bit last night during my association's first baseball/softball meeting by those that also officiate basketball and/or watched the game.

If I felt the need to call something out of my primary, this wouldn't be it.
