Video FA1820 – Faking and Illegal Contact

On this play, the Official should call a Personal Foul against White-5 instead of a Technical Foul (Fake a Foul) against White-5.

Orientation: Faking and Illegal Contact

If a player:

● fakes generating illegal contact, call the foul on the faker!

● If there is a foul on the play, there cannot be a fake on the same play (no foul and warning on the same play).


Foul = No warning

No foul = Warning
