I didn't know this was a "self call". I don't hug the net, but a social friend does... nobody ever chastizes him for hanging over the net and attacking balls that probably did not clear the net... he's an older guy, nice, quirky, we just laugh and let it go.... there is zero % chance guys like him would call it on themselves.
