This is an example of a permissible reaction under the “Respect for the Game” guidelines. Players can react to calls with which they disagree, provided the reaction is not overly demonstrative, disrespectful or prolonged. On this play, following the unsuccessful field goal attempt, the player in the dark uniform will signal that he was hit on the arm on the shot attempt. However, the gesture is not overly demonstrative, and it dissolves quickly. Therefore, no penalty will be assessed.
