Many players don't seem to understand that a let should be called if the ball has a chance of hindering someone.
Many people call lets if they see a stray ball roll and settle along the back fence. I certainly don't want anyone to get injured, but too many people let themselves get distracted by stray balls that are not on the court or near the court and do not hinder anyone.
