Reason you kill the play is that even though the move may look innocent, at what point do you determine it is okay and not a ploy trying to get a slight jump?
Which is why I included "if clearly not for taking a lead".
Officiating takes more than OJT.
It's not our jobs to invent rulings to fit our personal idea of what should and should not be.
