I never made reference to whether the ball was in the air or on the net. But, especially if the ball is on the net, you've only got fractions of a second before it falls off or changes position along the net (before it finally falls off). No one is fast enough to track a ball and predict its movement in that situation to be able "blow" it off of the net.
