Yes. In order to be a violation, it must be intentional.

I also ignore calling a "kicked ball" if it imediately goes out of bounds :D

I don't really care about shot clocks, but I suppose that's a third situation. Welpe has one, during an AP throwin.

The other is when the throwing team has an endline throwin. If the first touch in bounds is a defensive kick, and the ensuing spot would be on the same endline, the throwing team gets an end line throwin rather than a spot throwin.

If you simply rule out of bounds on the defense, then you've simply got a spot throwin.

I ignore flagrant fouls that result in reconstructive surgery. They're just too much fun to observe when they happen. I don't want to discourage them. :p

Oh well.

So give your list of things you don't call.

Punch Ball ???

The reason I was given was the intent and purpose of the rule. I guess that back when they had jump balls after every basket, some players would try to punch the ball to prevent their opponents from rebounding the ball. With players nearby, a punch was considered dangerous. Agree, but I wish I was told that twenty-nine years ago when I first learned the rules. We'll have to get Mark T. DeNucci, Sr. in here to confirm this nineteenth century interpretation
