Has the flop call been banned?

If Casper's "Someone just shot me" flop last night wasn't called,then there will never be one called this season.

Flop and game delay seems to be removed this season

Hooking in the post seems to be a new focus

Most times hooking in the post they have called it wrong as well. Flops should be reviewed and fines handed out.

Yeah not sure Conklins elbow hook in the post against pledger should have been called either.

A blocking foul was called on the Ware play. Once a foul has been called you can't have a flop warning.

My understanding is they've replaced flop warnings with charge calls.

Would love to see the flop just be a no call. The defender has already penalised themselves and removed themselves from the play

A coach will deal with a player consistently on the floor allowing 5 on 4 play

Not sure why they wouldn't review flops in the week after the game and issue warnings/fines. If they think referees can pick intent and make a decision watching live, it can't be worse doing it later with the benefit of multiple camera angles.

Hope so. Just make the charge/block/no call and get on with the game.

Wtf is with the amount of charges too. I've noticed at least 3qtrs of these are blocking fouls. Outrageous

Flop calls by refs are a bad idea. I appreciate it in theory, but it's way too hard to consistently get right.
I'm wish Isaac. Review during the week.
And publish the results. Name and shame.

Feels like I've seen more hooking calls through 3 rounds than 2017-18 season combined.

I think the increase in charge calls is partly due to a focus this year on hooking and pushing off, which is fair as there was way too much of it last year (watch Ware last year, made space with a push off on every second possession)
