I get one of these per season - where just 1 coach wants a foul. I ask who gets the foul when they "got there" at the same time, or I say that "same time - so I'd need a double foul". I don't recall my reply never working.

I have found that this play is a great time to "anticipate the action, but not the call". Being in great position for these crashes goes a long way for credibility.

Sounds like a definite flagrant.
