If the umpire says he judged that the defense player was in the offensive players way but for some reason it wasn't obstruction, then that is a rules misapplication.

Selling the out of bounds

This play from last night's Jazz 76er's game has created a bit of consternation in the local chatter (I live in the footprint of the Jazz's fanbase): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03Wg8TSo3V8

I think the best thing you could do with your slide rule at this point would be to find those 35 officials and use it to slap their wrists.:D

For it to be a player control foul, the defenders have to be disadvantaged. It's hard to see much disadvantage if after the contact they are standing up and the offensive player is on the ground. ...

I'm answering not enough information given. If A1 committed unsporting conduct, then sure the official is right. But if A1 did nothing then the official is incorrect in charging a technical foul ;-)

Why would you make that assumption? I've definitely considered how that affects it and still think the benefits of an enforced silence policy(*) are outweighed by it's cost.
