Put it in the same category as not being able to legally request a timeout when a five count is past four, not being able to take a charge when you are standing directly under the basket and getting the ball at midcourt following a timeout near the end of the game after rebounding a missed free throw.
I'm glad you brought up the charge under the basket. I had an assistant coach go nuts on me about something like that. I don't see what kind of advantage standing under the basket and getting run over would be anyway.
