The fact that it is in the mechanics manual (at least for NF) and an assignor/supervisor tells me to do it works for me!

Well, it didn't and there's no need to laugh. It's still required in many areas by local supervisors or by state associations.

Lots of mechanics serve little or no purpose. But we do what's required of us.

To clarify who the foul is on. NCAA Men's still bird dogs for clarification of who the foul is on.
