Actually, the opposite is probably the case. Intentional is not the call when everybody knows that he did do it on purpose.
And yet no one complains. So what's the problem again?

The problem is that the name is deceptive.


Intentional: Adjective; Done on purpose; deliberate.

An intentional foul is not necessarily done intentionally. Use a term that is neutral.

I get all that, I just don't see it as a problem because the only people who complain about it are officials. Coaches? Nope. Players? Nope. Parents? Who? Fans? Nope.

It maybe be a problem of semantics, but that's it.

I have heard others complain about it.

I get it often enough that the wording needs to be changed as stated above.
