Why is it that so many officials call a non shooting foul when a player is clearly beginning the "shooting motion", as it is stated in the FED and NCAA rule books? This would cut down tremendously on the number of "ticky-tack" fouls during the course of a game.

Case in point: A1 delivers a pass in the post to A5. As A5 turns to shoot but has not released the ball, B5 pushes with two hands. "TWEET!!" A5 releases the shot and the ball goes in. Score the goal 'and one', or A ball out of bounds?
Nature gave men two ends - one to sit on and one to think with. Ever since then man's success or failure has been dependent on the one he used most.
