2) Talk to players and coaches, help them to not call game interupters.

3) Have a patient whistle. If the ball goes in the hole and players played through the contact, play on.
And here's my questions:

1) Why should you try to sell the call when you didn't make it? Shouldn't the call sell itself?

2) I have no idea what you're talking about about. What is the "game interrupter" thingy that you're referring to?

3) Isn't all contact either illegal or incidental? How can "playing through ther contact" change illegal contact to incidental contact? Why should players have to play through anything that might slow them down, push 'em off-line, etc.?
