Flopping

Well, when I find a player (usually happens in boy's games) is actually in position and did not just jump in the way after the ball handler was in the air, then maybe I will call a PC foul. But usually the defender is very late, because standing there does nothing for his chances of defending the play that is coming at him or her. And better than that, they flop and never take real contact in the first place. And once you basically let them realize that you are not calling that crap, then they stop.

You are correct, a foul is a foul is a foul. But even if a player flops (and they usually almost every time) under the basket just like they do up top, I am going to not call a foul just the same.

Peace
