Do we have a foul??

In officiating we have a special power. We can decide to not blow our whistles in a certain situation. The power of a no call implies we understand very well what’s going on. We need to be in the right place to observe what is happening, and discover that the minor incidental contact did not influence the outcome of the play.  Even after some 20 years in the business: tricky and sometimes after a play where I swallowed my whistle I just feel sad because the reactions of players involved tells me I should not have kept quiet. More often than not in such situation it’s a matter of position and having an open look or not.  It gives me some homework for the upcoming off season to rewatch games, and watch clips as down below. Question : Do you call a foul or not, and in both cases: Why?
