From a philosophical standpoint, how much latitude do you guys give players that go too far under the basket and enter what I call the demilitarized zone. You know the 2-3 foot area where they are under and behind the basket with really no place to go so they jump into the defenders or try some ridiculous HORSE shot to try and get it near the hoop. For example - had a kid jump into two defenders trying a stupid shot and hoping for a foul and he and his coach went nuts when I hit him with the PC. I feel if you get caught down there I am not going to bail your rump out, but that is just my feeling. I don't necessarily think 3 seconds is the right call either, because what advantage is he gaining? How do you guys handle it or do you see it very often?
I generally have a no-call on this.
