I mentioned it in the NBA block charge thread, up until then I had not heard it mention.

As I mention before, I am disappointed and I think it is a step in the wrong direction. But with the turmoil in the NBA officiating community, I can see the women's committee pasting on this part. Not to mention that their game is not as physical as the men, especially at the Pro level where it was necessary to implement a restrictive area.

I can also see how this could be called inconsistently too. I was hoping the men's would incorporate this into their language and begin to move away from this unwritten rule.
