Back in the day when I used to ref right much volleyball, our supervisor would often remind us "ugly doesn't necessarily mean illegal" (speaking of some crazy volleys, returns, etc.). I have kept...

It was some time ago. There's really nothing to elaborate on. The rule states "goaltending occurs when a player touches the ball...in its downward flight....[etc.]." It does not delineate between...

I can promise you that the "pass" was such that, if the offense had not jumped for the ball and the defense had caught it there would have been a young war from the offensive bench.

Never made the call, but observed one where, if there ever was an opportunity to call it, it should have been.

I'd agree with you except that your assignor will side with the coach and throw you under the bus if you do make that call, even when the video confirms it. Don't ask me how I know.

What about a similar scenario, but A3 uses the same move on A4 to reach and tap the rebound back towards the basket?

The guy on the floor still has that space from floor to ceiling. It is no more incidental than if he had jumped over him while he was standing and his ankle tapped him on the head.

If it is as you said, and I had been your partner, you would have likely got more guff from me if you hadn't called it than for calling it. You take the check, take care of bizness: that was bizness.

Can the defender continue to defend anybody while on his butt in the middle of the floor? Then he was put at a disadvantage. Call the TC foul like you should.
