At halftime, the Referee on the game (who was the T on the play in question) told me that the call was a good get. L said that he could not see the play.

If I blow a call, or make a mistake that could affect the game (I hand the ball to the thrower early on a throw-in) I will admit it and move on. I have rarely seen players admit that they have fouled or committed a violation, so it is noticeable (and remarkable) for me when it happens.

Last week, middle school game. My partner makes a foul call for a player that could have been in the act, or no shot, it was close, he called it in the act, and I silently agreed.

As he's reporting, I'm lining up the kids for the free throws, and ask the shooter, "You were shooting, right?".

I was 100% sure to get a positive reply.

The kid shrugs his shoulders.

Diogenes should have talked to this kid, it could have saved him a lot of time.
