Today's Play: Excessive Fake

Red #7 attempts a 3PT shot. White #10 jumps trying to block the shot. No contact between the players. Red #7 "fakes a foul" by spreading his legs but the shot is unsuccessful. Centre official has excellent open-angle, is stationary, takes the play from the beginning to the end (100% focus on the shot) and recognizes the fake immediately. When Red #7 comes back to the floor, the Centre official moves his attention to the ball. In the moment when the ball is gathered by White #50 (new team control), he blows the whistle and charges a technical foul  for an "excessive fake" to Red #7.
