Block or Foul in the NBL?



There is minor contact going up,
looks like arm contact, during the shot or immediately following,
and clear body contact after the event.

How SHOULD this be called in the NBL?

It's a spectacular effort, but given the definition, I think this would have to be "fouled in the act of shooting".
(Because the act doesn't actually finish till he's back on the floor.)

Hard to say, I've seen similar in the NBL with no foul, but to me NO FOUL play on.

It's not a foul because the contact is minimal... and it's a dope play. Nobody wants to see that called, except NBL refs.

I've never understood the abuse directed at refs for things like this.

They don't decided the interpretation. They are judged by evaluation and a referee manager who with the nbl makes those decisions.

Blaming the ref for following nbl direction is just an excuse to abuse a ref.

How do you know it's an NBL directive?

Clearly not a foul. So in the NBL it would be called one after a five minute review by Aylen and Mayberry. Plus we aren't allowed to have nice things like blocks in this league.

Nbl did a ref review and found that block was incorrectly called during the game, it was not a foul.

The weekly ref review determined that Plumlee's "foul" last week was an incorrect call....not that we didn't know that already!

I think some were nbl refs calling less fouls than in the nbl
