Sunday’s Big Game is on the line and the outcome is in the balance, and an official makes a “No-Call” on a play. The TV Announcer says that this is a good “No-Call” because the players need to make plays. And the more times he watched it in slow motion he talks himself out of that premise, and says it could have been a call.
Now regardless of who you wanted to win the game, what is your position on the “No-Call”. In a sport like football, basketball, and maybe soccer — the “No Call” has become more and more the norm instead of the exception.
For my swimming friends, I can only equate it to not calling a stroke infraction or early take off in the 400 free relay because it is the last event in a dual meet.
My position has always been, that if it was a foul or penalty 2 minutes into the game why does that change when there are only 2 minutes left in the game? No more situational officiating.
