Fox did away with that. Do not know the reason.
They did away with it because fans don't want to hear it. If they don't like the call, the last thing they want to hear is a reason why the call was correct. Fans of the team the call went for are convinced that, if wrong, it was a proper make up call for the previous missed ones.

Trust me: fans are NOT interested in the rules. They already think they know them. I was asked to give a rules talk for a high school basketball program about 12 or so years ago. It was to occur at a booster meeting, where I'm told a hundred in attendance was common. 13 people showed up to my talk.
