You can make things “safer” by accurately calling charges so ball handlers stop barreling over defenders. All without the RA.

It's better than having to count how many assistants came off the bench for each team to figure out who's shooting FT's and ejecting them even though they were trying to restore the peace.

I'm sorry, but is it written somewhere that I have to agree with/like a rule change because it's "important" to the coaches?

And if determined that the call was incorrect, the result will be an IW and resume play with the arrow. I'm surprised that the coaches are fine with that.

My “not closely guarded” signal is my lack of counting.

As for close 2-pointers, most tables can’t comprehend that “no touchdown signal = 2 points.”
