    Well technically you don't have to let go of the sub until the ref steps in. But I guess they can not give you the bonus either.

    Good on them. Shouldn't reward malicious intent after the ref has intervened.

    If three seconds is one second then you are correct, sir.

    Not malicious and that's liablous to say otherwise. The second he saw the ref he stopped. The dude isn't smart. That's the cause and that's where it ends.

    Well, Mike Pierce gave more taps than Paul Harris has IQ points and he still didn't let go. This is deserved.

    Here is the problem with most people's reaction, if you pointed out the extra second and that he cranked it around the time/slightly after, you'd be right. But you hold the sub until the ref intervenes or you risk a situation where one guy claims he didn't tap
