Veteran officials know that correct mechanics place a referee in the right spot to make the call. The call may be a flag for taunting, an ejection for flagrant contact or a "no call" by a strategically positioned official to prevent a violation. In all these events, mechanics save the day by avoiding a situation that could lead to official liability.
