Definitely not a fan of the Ts mechanic here. Almost looked like he waved the L off.

My question is so when does it become a blarge? He obviously wasn't pulling the TV Teddy straight up mechanic with both his fist in the air. He obviously was signaling a block while his partner was waving him off to call a charge.

At what point during your signaling are you committed to it being called? I've had this question before and never really had a concrete answer.

Exactly. It was obvious to God, Mother, Country and the other official that he was coming out with a block. He had a whistle and a preliminary. That's why I have always been told not to give a preliminary.
I agree about how it was handled on the court. Perfect time to huddle and talk it out and make sure everyone is on the same page.

Well, I was kind of joking that it wasn't a blarge because the trail hadn't signaled anything to that point...

Two whistles, in the paint, agree 100%. That's what is taught here in my little corner of Connecticut.

Still trying to think of when it becomes an actual official sign of a block?

I guess whenever they get together and someone says "we f'd up"

My bet is that "someone" will be the assignor/evaluator. Tidy it up any way you want...in the end, it was a blarge.

Northing's big in Connecticut (It's the direct opposite of Texas). I'm surprised that we were allowed to be a state. I guess the the Territory of Connecticut didn't quite sound correct to President Benjamin Franklin (He's a dead president, right?).

Correct. Connecticut is New England's little corner. Wait? New England's Little Corner? I've got to call a trademark attorney.

I saw this on TV in real time, but I haven't seen a replay/slow motion. However, my initial thought on the play was that it looked to be a pretty clear "block".

I'm also a new official and not too familiar with the details of 3-man (just finished my whole first season doing JV - 2 man) ... but it also seemed to me that this call should have been the Lead's primary, and the lead also appeared to have a better angle. Is this how others saw it? Why would the lead defer to the trail here?

At least the Trail, who "stole" this call from Lead, got it right: Player Control foul!
