Sometimes the instinct (not just here, but in life) is to try to tinker to fix rather than just identify the actual problem and go back and fix it properly.
This, this, this. Yep.

They've been tinkering for years now rather than fixing the mess they made. Now it seems like they're just being stubborn about it and refusing to acknowledge there's a problem.

As we all said when this first came out -- if we can have (by definition) a PC foul when there is no PC, then we can have (by definition) a TC foul when there is no TC.

Bandaid on top of a bandaid on top of gauze over another bandaid and a cast, all topped by ACE and another bandaid ... at this point nothing's touching skin anymore.

Game Management

I ran this play past a few 'Veteran' officials. A particular official basically said to set aside the rules and use 'Game Management'. I assume he was implying to give the ball back to Team A.

The sign of a veteran who doesn't want to bother with the rules because they make his life more difficult.

The more years I add to my career, the more I have sympathy for this.....in very limited circumstances.

Saw a real-world IW. HS JV boys (high quality JV), close game, under 2 minutes. Blue driving toward basket. Weak whistle -- some stop, some don't, blue misses runner in lane. Real whistle. Jump signal -- AP favors white. Most parents hopelessly confused with what is happening. Blue coach upset. Referees get together for a surprisingly long time. Blue given ball back. Parent on white team yells "C'mon refs, you can;t just give them the game!"

It looked to me that at first I though the official was going to pretend the whistle hadn't happened -- but thought better of it. That delay, however, added to the confusion, and may have lead to his jump signal. But they got together and got it right. (Dang it, this forum has me spending way too much time paying attention to what the refs do and how they do it at my son's games . . .still not quite as bad as when I watch soccer games though . . .)

If it's a blow out go with the decision that gives the ball getting the snot beat out of them.
