VW, my point exactly. If we are going to say reaction time happens that quickly, then we should be seeing way more locked hands violations called.
In this particular clip, it's pretty close. I know at the NCAA level, this is T2 for 100% of the officials. But, in high school or below, there will be a split opinion. The more I dwell on this particular situation, the more I wonder about exactly how much the guy on top was able to control the opponent, down on the mat. If he was really controlling him down on the mat beyond reaction time, then why is the opponent up on his feet so quickly?
Anyway, this video generates lots of good discussion.
