Do you call it?

The angle is not the best you’ll get , but that sometimes happens to all of us. The ref on the baseline tho has a pretty decent look at the play in the clip. Todays question: do we agree on the decision it’s legal play or are we calling a travel?
Please be so kind as to share why you make your decision. We have junior followers who are looking to get better, and to understand what’s happening. Lees verder “Do you call it?”

What do you have?? -26-

The main thing we need to do as referees is make sure that in our team we’re more or less on the same page in our callselection. One way of accomplishing that is talk with your partners and friends about situations in clips. ‘Would you call a foul here? If so: why? If not: Why not?? What do we think about the position of the refs? That being said:
