As I said before, we get requests to ask for help all the time. It is rare (as it should be) that a BU will go to the PU for help on a call.

This isn't a check swing request, as we're not listening to the request for getting help from a player or from the bench. If a Head Coach feels that the play in question warrants some help from the PU, he can come out discuss with the BU what he saw and let the conversation go from there. If the BU feels that he may have been straight-lined on the play, he can consult with his partner one-on-one and then affirm or change his call.

The vast majority of the time, he will tell the coach that he had a good look at the play and he's positive in what he saw.
