Re: Kansas phantom 3 pointer
Decide all of these questions as if you had an unintentional whistle.

(I'm assuming you agree that theoretically it should be impossible to actually have both a charge and a block simultaneously, regardless of what is called. They seem to be mutually exclusive fouls. Thus calling both simultaneously means that at least one ref was wrong.) Intentionally giving a player a foul when he didn't commit a foul boggles my mind.

Players get called for fouls all the time that aren't deserved. Players also foul and don't get called for it. You say that obviously a foul didn't occur. I say that obviously a foul did occur. One ref was sure each player fouled. Its not like its a guy stepping on a line where it could be determined for sure what violation occured.
The way it is now, one official made an incorrect call. What you propose is saying that 2 officials made an incorrect call. Two wrongs don't make a right.
