I never said it shouldn't, I don't think. I'm saying that a lot of officials will give the FT shooter a little leeway on the count instead of calling it at the stroke of 10, or even warn the FT shooter. For the record, I'm one of them. Same concept as warnings for someone to get their butt outa the paint or to keep their elbows in.

A totally random analogy

Let's say you are cutting the grass and your wife stops you to tell you she is going to the store to get you some prune juice. That is OK. She goes (to the store), comes back and stops you again to tell you she is going into the bathroom because she drank the last of your prune juice earlier. Wouldn't you think she could have went to the bathroom and let you continue cutting the grass.
Yabut......hasn't it been that way since Dr. Naismith hung up the peach basket? (I know, Nevada. His janitor actually hung it up. Just using a metaphor, is all ). You blow your whistle when you see a violation or you judge the contact was illegal and should be a foul. You gotta interrupt the game to do so too, no matter what. So.....what's the big deal with "game interrupters"(whatever they are)?

And, I wouldn't drink prune juice on a bet...and my wife cuts the grass. Does that mean that I have to go to the bathroom?

Gee, I'm getting soooooo confused......

PS- is a stop sign a "game interrupter"?
