Definitely T Worthy

I think we've gotten gun-shy when it comes to using this very valuable tool. You did him a favor with the warning, then even more so by explaining why he was behaving poorly during the break (good...

Where was C?

That's got to be his call all the way doesn't it? Speculation only but, maybe as he's trying to sort out call/no-call on the initial bump, he brain-locks on the player control?

Ok, just rewatched...

Normally when a call is this obvious (i.e., when viewing it in real time) it gets me worried that I'm missing something. Luckily in slo-mo it's confirmed to be a great call.

The second worst thing

Besides the elbow itself is that the kid looked at the L to see if he was watching the shooter (i.e., if the coast was clear to throw the elbow). Guess he forgot it was a 3-man crew (and good job by...

Super Tucks

I have a pair of these and have just about worn them out (which stinks because they're not being made anymore). I much prefer them, or suspender-like stays, that latch onto the bottom of the shirt...

Not recommending this, just asking

In this day and age when we no longer bird-dog on fouls, could the officials have said one had the grab and the other had the push and that the reason they went to the replay was to judge F1 or F2?

Favorite Officiating Joke

That can really apply to anything else I guess:

Think of it another way

Assuming LGP and the defender is falling away, who's responsible for the contact? If anything the offensive player not only initiates it but does so at a speed faster than if the defender wasn't...
