What are refs being taught?
Refs please answer, trolls p*** off.
The FIBA rules say
The offensive player, whether on the floor or airborne, shall not cause contact with the defensive player in a legal guarding position by:
• Using his arms to create more space for himself (pushing off).
• Spreading his legs or arms to cause contact during or immediately after a shot for a field goal.
So many of us on this forum cannot understand why players kicking their legs out will always draw the foul, given the wording is very clear. Similarly with dribblers using their arms to hit away defenders' arms.
What are you refs being taught in rep or above?
