JA, with other whistle, posts, holds, and then well after the L makes his blocking signal, JA then makes his adamant blocking signal. I do not recall ever seeing that type of situation. It was almost as if JA was confirming the L's call by performing, again adamantly, the same signal.

There might be a Teddy clone in the making.
I wonder if there is something about that situation that might not be caught up by the tv production and that was the volume of the facility. How loud was it when that call was made? Was this a situation where the player called for the foul heard both whistles and the actions by JA were not directed to his partner, but to the player to indicate that I had the same call as my partner, so don't even try questioning it?
