*Our crew had this play in a game this season and the ref who whistled the action called it a technical foul. We very briefly convened and I told the ref that it should've been a violation, but he insisted on the tech and rushed to administer accordingly. This occurred early in the first quarter; when we met during the between-quarter break he told us both that he'd had the same odd play in previous game and ruled it the same way "those trick plays don't fool me", he proudly proclaimed.
